    Re: The Ash Grove Multitrack

    Audacity gets a bum rap from a lot of people but it is so easy to use
    with a ton of plug-ins available.

    Very intuitive interface.

  3. Re: The merciless camera (recording ourselves as a reality check)

    A violin teacher of mine (over 40 years ago) required me to routinely record myself with a cassette recorder.

    Man, was that ever painful to listen to! But very instructive.

    Re: I don't like F styles. Anyone else?

    I don't like Bruce Springsteen but I've learned to not mention that in my circle of friends.

    But this is a wonderful place of discussion. I like A's also.

    At the moment I'm using classical guitar strings on my 4 strings. The selection is mind boggling.

    More punch? Hmmm that sounds good.

    Re: Electric Mandolin Buzzing

    Well you might know something I don't, but the shielding should be copper or that special paint they sell.

    Re: Electric Mandolin Buzzing

    Sounds like 60 cycle hum.

    There are plenty of YouTube videos about this.

    The lighter I play the better I sound.
    I can even get some subtlety in there once in a while.

    Just bought some based on your recommendation. They will be here in a few days.

    I haven't added to "The Pick Museum" in quite a while so I'm looking forward to it.

    I didn't know the GC in Brooklyn was even open.

    For the record I have never seen a vintage mandolin on display there, but if it's possible
    I'll go there tomorrow (Sunday) and have a look.
