    Re: Should I buy a Charango?

  4. Re: Ukulele Chords Played on Mandolin: Something is Wrong

    Assuming your mando strings are tuned to the right pitches, playing uke chord shapes will not get you the same chord as on a uke. If you play the 1-finger C chord shape that works on a uke, on a...
  5. Re: Two Hornpipes: Rights of Man and Off to California

    Hornpipes are instrumental tunes in 4:4. To me (and there are certainly other points of view) hornpipes often have a swing rhythm, while reels are played with even 8th (etc.) notes. Hornpipes tend...

    Re: Timing issues

    I'm reminded of Charley Patton, who rarely played a 12 bar blues when he was playing solo. He often put in a couple of extra beats at the end of a line, and wound up with "13 1/2 bars". But when he...

    Re: If you jam . . . .

    You'd be fine by me.

    Years ago I took a workshop presented by Seth Rosen, a departed musician that I miss. Seth talked about playing "secondary rhythm", meaning that in many band/jam situations...

    Re: Dammit!

    I popped a tendon in my left hand a few years ago - splinted for 3 months (but no surgery, thank goodness). I worked on lap steel.

    So maybe some slide mando for a while?

    Re: Counting Tree Growth Lines ?

    Count just one side of a book-matched top. The number of growth rings (dark+ light line = 1 ring) is the number of years of growth in the top wood.

    Of course, the tree itself may have been much...

    Re: beside the mandolin.

    Now that I'm (very close to being) retired I decided to try and learn clawhammer, which has interested me for a long, long time. I started with a Deering, and recently got a Rickard.
