    So the OP's question, then, would be: How to write slurs in TablEdit? I don't know, I seldom use TablEdit...

    Funny you mentioned combs. I'm usually ok on picks, but recently I misplaced both my capos, [1] no music stores around, no time for mail-order, so I looked around the house for something to make a...

  13. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    Yep! :mandosmiley: I agree completely. :grin: Anything tuned in fifths, and (for me) preferably an octave lower than mandolin, for a more mellow sound. GDAE, or GDAEB, or even CGDAEB.

    Re: Help Finding Song

    Any chance it might have been "Father's Hall"? :confused: I found a couple of MandolinCafe posts about that tune, with recordings posted by Chuck Naill in 2010, here and here.
