    Re: Converting guitar chords

    No one has said anything so maybe I'm not reading this right. But the Dm looks a little suspect. There are many ways to play it but 235X might work with those other voicings.

    Re: Songs for a wedding

    I have played exactly one wedding and the couple waltzed down the aisle while we played Lover's Waltz. One of my favorite playing experiences ever.

    Re: How to play in A Flat

    I understand that transposing a melody can raise or lower the range of that melody. What I do not understand is saying that a singer prefers A flat (period) because it has a lower range. A key does...

    Re: How to play in A Flat

    I have heard this many times and I have given up on understanding it. How is a "c" played in the key of A flat any lower than a "c" played in the key of C? How does a key say anything about the...

    Re: How to play in A Flat

    I guess I was saying something (in jest) more about the singers I have played with than the ones you have.

    I'm sensing that you haven't played with too many singers.

    Re: Forum Economics?

    Seems a little short-sighted. I would think cross-pollination would benefit both forums.

    I recall learning in a science class several decades ago that lab rats quickly learn the beginning and end of a maze, but are much slower to learn the middle section. We are not that far from lab...

    Re: Jethro and Roy

    Thank you. That was super fine.

    And I actually appreciate the YouTube link since imbedded videos have been just a big black unplayable square for me for the last year or so.

    Re: Bridge not perpendicular

    My eyes are not that great and it is hard for me to see slightly less than perfect bridge contact. I check by using a thin piece of a magazine page to see if I can slip it under any of the corners...

    Re: What mando chords are these?

    These conversations must be dumbfounding to non-theory nerds and they are a little dumbfounding to me. People put a little too much stock in the way they learned stuff (guilty here), and...

    Re: Ebonizing?

    India ink is expensive so I watered it down. Maybe too much. They called me an Ebonizer Scrooge.




    Sorry.

    Re: Mando chord cheat sheet

    It is an augmented chord, or a major triad with a raised fifth. C+ would be C E G#.

    Re: Rootless chords

    One example that comes to mind is that whenever I see a flat 9 chord, the easiest thing for me to do on the fly is to play a diminished 7th chord that includes the flat 9. So, for example, if I see...

    So you really think "banjo music" is an oxymoron or were you just trying to pad your score?

    Minus 40. But I like Bluegrass. Do I really need to start calling my dogs Earl? Both of them?

    Re: Cut time, 2/2, 4/4???

    Sblock is talking about the difference between 2/2 and 2/4 - not the difference between 2/2 and 4/4. Sblock is correct. 2/2 and 2/4 both have two beats per measure and it makes no difference...

    Re: Mandola and standard notation reading

    I think you have answered your own question. The mandola is just a fifth below the mandolin (as a viola is to a violin). So it is missing the high e string of the mandolin, but adds the low c a...

    A time signature provides no tempo information. It is merely something to help you read the notes on the page (what kind of note gets a beat; how many beats to a measure). The difference between...
