    Re: What's this? 0-3-2-0

    In a way, the internet is ruining the term TAB, which is short for tablature notation. Nowadays, some people seem to think that guitar tab is synonymous with lead sheet, as you’re referring to. A...

    Re: What's this? 0-3-2-0

    It’s the exact notation method of tablature, without the grid.

    A tablature grid is much like the musical staff, but the horizontal lines represent strings rather than notes. The vertical lines...

    Thanks for your thoughts but it’s done now. As with any shorthand or even musical chart situation, a little pedagogy and a key may be necessary for understanding … it will be my job to provide that …...

    Update: I've completed the C family chord chart changes, and am now working on the movable chords. The following changes have been made:

    I have now re-worked all the C family chord images (though they're not online as yet). As I mentioned in my original post, I added this type of notation to each chart, and I named...

  13. Re: Good Tone - How long does it actually take?

    It all matters. Pay attention to the sounds you’re making and make subtle adjustments to everything from posture to pick angle to fretting fingers and continue to chase the sound you want.

    I use the pinky anytime it makes sense, I even hammer on with it in certain cases, but find it much more difficult to use it for slides effectively.

    When I used to do simple lutherie tasks and set ups on guitars, I’d check the neck angle by placing a straight edge on the frets and wanted it to intersect right about the top of the saddle. I assume...

    Hmm, perhaps a label of E X to indicate economic expression, like so:

    Ex: ​0-2-3-0

    or F R as an abbreviation of Frablature

    Fr: ​0-0-2-3

    What's this? 0-3-2-0

    Since picking up mandolin and spending time at the Mandolin Cafe, I've become accustomed to this shorthand way of communicating mandolin chords:

    0-2-3-0

    etc.

  25. Re: How much of a difference in sound does string gauge make?

    All I would advise is to experiment. Strings aren’t as expensive as mandolins, so if you are planning to stick with playing for the rest of your life, then splurge on extra pack of different strings...
