    Re: Taran Springwell

    You will be amazed. Mine is from the Class of 2015 and it sounds better every day. I had the pleasure of traveling to Scotland last May to see Rory in his shop. You are in for a great experience...

    This book just arrived in the mail and I am anxious to work on some of the tunes. I can't think of a better way to work though this national issue: stay close to home and play music! I am going to...

    Re: Burtenshaw Mandola #6

    Lovely, I am happy to see more mandolas being built. I am fortunate to have an excellent one, Collings MT2 that I purchased years ago. I love the sound of the mandola, especially for hymns and...

    Re: Pickups

    I have used the LR Baggs Radius along with their preamp and it is fine. One of my other mandolins has the K&K internal pickup. It also sounds very good. For what it is worth, I prefer the internal...

    Re: Grommets

    The leather shoestring works well too. I thread a piece around the strings near the tailpiece and it seemed to benefit the sound--might have all been in my head. I did the same thing with another...

    Re: Point of Diminishing Returns

    The same thing happens to me. One trick that has worked for me is to play the tune on my melodica (I have a cheap one but the sound is good). It helps me visualize the tune on the keyboard and it...

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld string weights

    I have used the Thomastik Hard, and they are great. They have a wound "A" string as I remember and it is a very nice sound, indeed. They are a bit high priced, but when you think about it in terms...

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    Just a quick comment. I found that certain sites feature one genre over others. They are all very good however. I probably lean to Peghead Nation because of the variety of genre covered. I took...

    Re: Notation to Tablature

    Oh, Chris From Tuscon, I forgot one thing. Mandolin orchestra music is notorious for putting a lot of notes on the ledger lines. AS if you don't have enough to learn, just on the staff! Many...

    Re: Notation to Tablature

    One crude, but effective way to transcribe would be to purchase the TablEdit program and simply do it in reverse, i.e. put the tab on the lines and the program will put the notes on the staff.

  18. Poll: Re: Poll for Song a Week Social Group Week #504

    This is really a nice tune. Thanks for putting it up. I see it is in Dmaj. It might fit on my mountain dulcimer as well. That will be a project for this weekend!
  19. Poll: Re: Poll for Song a Week Social Group Week #504

  20. Poll: Re: Poll for Song a Week Social Group Week #504

    Thanks, I am working on it now. It is a tricky tune to get the timing correct
