    Re: more accurate clip on tuner than Snark?

    I like the micro-tuners' unobtrusiveness as well on some of my nylon-strung instruments which go out of tune more easily. But I just toss out the clip and nip off the part that it attaches to, and...

    Re: Sight read tab?

    "Reading" and "sight reading" in terms of music are often conflated, but they are not the same thing. Sight reading is reading at tempo. So, "sight reading at tempo" is therefore a redundancy. ...

    Re: Question for flat top players

    My flat tops, mandolin & mandolas alike (incl. Sawchyn) are all strung with Thomastiks; but what else is new? They should pay me for all my endorsements on here. :))

    Re: To Cafe Members on the US West Coast

    My heart goes out to the people on the west coast and the nightmare they're experiencing. How horrendous! With due respect, though, I don't think you should put hurricanes in the same category. ...

  6. Re: Mark O'Connor Little Maggie on Mandocello

    Nice! I'm sure it's because I don't get around enough, but that's the first time I've heard and seen anyone sing and play fiddle simultaneously. Whew!

    Re: Mandocello Envy

    Thank you all for the kind comments!

    Because I lacked anything in this voicing and was drawn to the lower tones, I wanted this for the solitary pursuits of playing alone and helping me in...

    For pictures, you have to go to "Go Advanced" (next to "Post Quick Reply" below); and when you get there, you should see "Manage Attachments", which is where you then upload your photos.

    Re: Strings By Mail

    I've used Strings By Mail too. Great company with personal follow-up. They have numerous single strings, which helped me immensely in experimenting to find the best ones that worked for my 5-string...

    Re: Mandocello Envy

    Yeah, with those things, I always ditch the silly clip, lop off the nub it attaches to, and just use my trusty double-sided foam tape. Makes it too much of a pain to remove for photos, though, ;)

    Re: Mandocello Envy

    Here is a video. This piece was inspired by the Mandocello-thing, and started out as something I made up to help accustom myself to picking accurately across five strings; like an etude, if you...

    Re: Mandocello Envy

    It was actually this old thread (Thank you, Ondrej) that first got the wheels turning for me on this. I didn't actually try stringing up my baritone uke as a mandocello, but seeing and hearing that...

    Mandocello Envy

    It's no secret that I've had the malady, however I also knew that a true mandocello was out of the range of my physical capabilities. I've also had the desire to play fingerstyle for some time,...

    Re: Why do you like the picks you like?

    3 or 4mm Gravity picks, acrylic polished bevel Stealth triangular. Easiest playing, least noise. Would prefer bare fingers, but these will do.

    Hi Victor, I just found and listened to this. Beautiful! It sounded familiar, of course because I had heard the mandolin version some while back. But the string orchestral version has more depth...

    I don't dare get a humidifier - it would probably try to fill itself! (we have dehumidifiers)

    Still waiting here, but the checks were only supposed to start going out today. That's how we'll be getting ours, as we've always paid taxes through snail mail.

    I forgot I even had one like the one posted by pops1. It was hidden behind a bunch of junk on my desk. The top of mine measures roughly 9" across.

    I have many cats, and have had many more over the years, and the only certain thing is that each one is different. They may prefer one type of instrument timbre over another, or enjoy none at all. ...
