    Re: Mando Mafia cd tracks on youtube

    It's the same "family" of styles!

    I do recognize Italian based styles, though :)

    It's still good playing from you and your band.

    Re: Mandolin to DADGAD

    thanks for the other Led Zep DADGAD comments. Black Mountain Side was acoustic, Kashmir was electric.

    Page called it the "CIA" tuning - Celtic, Indian, Arabic.

    Re: Mandolin to DADGAD

    All very true!

    It's the player not the tuning that really matters.

    Re: Mandolin to DADGAD

    DADGAD has become a very popular tuning, particularly for Celtic styles of music - although Led Zeppelin used that tuning for pieces like "Kashmir".

    It differs from open D (D A D F# A D) by not...

    Re: Mando Mafia cd tracks on youtube

    Nice playing!

    I guess "mafia" covers a lot of musical territory, it seems....I hear a lot of American rootsy style and other things, but "Maria", "Santa Maria Polka", are more Italianate. Good...

    I just want to point out that one thing standard notation does very well is to allow a composer to write music and have appropriately trained musicians be able to read the score and make music that...

    Re: Cumbus Mandolin

    Those are fairly common and can sound pretty good when set up. Plus the action is adjustable with a single neck bolt.

    Is the nut slot too high? Is the string true and if not did you try a new string?

    He could mean "melodeon" which is another name for "button accordion".

    Re: Andy Statman's Jazz Mandolin series

    Yes, the Coker book is great for learning modern jazz. Just don't forget to learn how to play the chord changes/chord arpeggio method too - it helps you make sense of the chord/scale method.

    Re: Turns and Mordents

    If you ask me, the answer is "of course, yes." :)

    But be aware what are the composer's suggestions, the editor's suggestions, and where your own interpretation would use such ornaments.
  16. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    If you use TAB that has rhythmic notation and dynamics written in, or staff notation with fingerings, you get the same musical information - what notes to play when, how loud or soft, and where on...

    Re: George Harrison's fretless guitar

    Oud players deal with a fretless neck all the time...and there are Turkish fretless guitars.

    Jaco also had played string bass in school.

    Re: instrument an offensive weapon (no mando)

    The thing is, I have actually heard good bodhran players.

    But I am reminded of Chet Baker's comment about jazz drummers:

    "It takes a good drummer to be better than no drummer".

    Re: instrument an offensive weapon (no mando)

    That's a good suggestion.

    BTW, we had players available for all those instruments at Lark camp...and could have added a brass section if needed.

    Re: instrument an offensive weapon (no mando)

    Some of my Lark camp buddies wanted to make an "offensive" band - their idea of an instrumentation was 5 string banjo, bagpipes (several types), hurdy-gurdy, accordions, steel drums, very loud rock...
