    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...

    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?

    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.
  12. 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.

    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: 7th fret: 3rd or 4th fingers?

    If you are playing classical mandolin, the preference is for using the 4th finger. Mine too.

    For other styles of music, well, there are fewer rules...and more sliding of that 3rd finger to get 7th...
