    Re: Omnidirectional Mic through bass amp

  10. Re: Question for notation-reading CGDAE-instrument players

    I like C, but I’m coming from a ‘cello background so running from bass through tenor into treble is very common for us.

    Re: Breaking A-Strings in CGDA tuning

    I get this if I go too heavy on my mandoloncello. I put most of a set of the D’Adario MC strings on but use a lighter A, which seemed a bit backwards, but it was because the heavier strings needed...

    Re: Mandolin classical literature

    I’ve worked up a few, and the tunes work well solo, but to get the real effect I think you need to get hold of an intermediate mandolin and a proper ‘in you face’ guitar player. This lets you get the...
