  1. Re: All of My 2020 Festivals Have Been Cancelled

    I think we're going to be mostly online for a while, especially those of us in the high risk category. I do have high hopes for 2021, though.

    Re: Fiddle Tune (and more)

    John Lamancusa (a friend of mine for many years) consistently says "by" to credit composers. For example, Sadie at the Back Door (by Jere Canote). The other names are the sources/versions. His...

    Re: Dreaming of a Great A5 under $6000

    Well, we all like the mandolins we own :-).

    I know you have a few Kimbles, and I'm a giant fan of those as well, having owned an A5 and a two-pointer in the past.

    Re: Dreaming of a Great A5 under $6000

    Good luck,

    Thanks! Video would be nice, and I'll play around more with the settings. but I'd rather be able to add to the physical distance and the number of jammers participating.

    Re: Playing remotely with friends

    Hi MikeyG,

    No separate audio interface, just the USB mic into a USB-to-USB-C adapter into a Thunderbolt (USB-C) port. OS is macOS 10.15.4.

    I'll try the video again next time...

    Re: 3 Point F-4 Torch and Wire

    Those 3-pointers are beautiful! I'm sorry the auction didn't work out for the OP - maybe another one will come along.

  12. Re: Radial Tonebone PZ-Pre Acoustic Preamp

    I can't answer for both instruments since I don't amplify my mando, but I love this Radial Tonebone on my acoustic electric. 5-string fiddle. Wireless to the Tonebone to the amp/mixer.

  13. Re: Anybody happen to have tabs for Temtation Rag?

    JL277z, I'm in awe of your analysis! That's probably the reason I'm hearing an A in the second measure.

    And the B is just a passing tone (like the D# in the first measure), not requiring any...

  15. Re: Anybody happen to have tabs for Temtation Rag?

    Awesome work!

    One oddity - maybe it's just my hearing - is that the second melody note in measure 2 is written as a B in notation and tab, but the midi player plays it as an A. Similar issue...
