    Re: Best Beginner Mandolin on a Budget?

    I did the same, but I had been a lifelong guitar player, so I knew what action I wanted and I did the setup: Fit bridge to top, lower slots in the nut, etc. Those are things that really need to be...

    Re: Best Beginner Mandolin on a Budget?

    As Chuck said, a good setup is paramount for any new mandolin, and I would say *especially* so for the budget mandolins. And I see that you are totally new here, so by way of explanation, the "cafe...

    Love the headline, Guess Who Got His Guitar Back

    Personally, I've been spending time the last few months going back to the music of my youth (I was born in '55) ... and in the past three weeks,...

    Once again, a careful reading of the original post would help. Regardless what other instruments are in the band, his band mates asked him to play that specific part. He plays both acoustic guitar...

    I read through the lesson, haven’t used the materials yet, but I have to keep complimenting you on a site well done. The content is great, it’s a pretty comprehensive treatment of the tune. Well...

    Re: Clip On Tuners / What Cha Got ?

    I use the stroboclip mostly, but only have one, so I move it from mandolin case to guitar case, etc., which is a PITA

    Are those D’Addario micros easily visible outdoors in the sunlight?

    Re: Circle of 5ths

    I was pretty sure that you’d been taught that way, Bruno, and I’m not knocking that. 20 years ago is recent history, brother, I’m 67 now and the circle has been around a long time. Still, calling it...

    Re: Circle of 5ths

    If I were to make critical observations, they would be the same ones that Ralph has made. The Circle of Fifths can be seen as a circle of fourths precisely because fifths and fourths are inversions...

    Re: Random mandolin sightings

    The series is interesting to me and has quite a few historical figures represented. I don’t know the answer to your question, but my hunch is that the writer(s) would know that Capone was an amateur...

    Re: Random mandolin sightings

    I know very well that Capone played tenor guitar & banjo, and mandola … in the gangster series Boardwalk Empire, the Capone character plays a mandolin to the best of my observations. I only saw the...

    Re: Random mandolin sightings

    This may have been mentioned before, but a mandolin appears in a couple episodes of season 3 of Boardwalk Empire, an HBO series about early 1900s Atlantic City. The Al Capone character is holding it...

    Re: "Noodling" at Sessions

    It is a discouraging thing - when you have someone like the OP who defines noodling like that. Noodling, as I understand it in 50+ years of playing, means just what JeffD said, it’s just messing...

    Re: Porcupine Tree - Trains - chord Dadd4add9

    Ralph if only you had read the OP and the thread with a little interest, you’d find that the context has been given by way of a YouTube video in OP, as well as being mentioned in some of the comments.

    My first post above was in answer to this. The question of the thread title is a little different, though.

    I find that the more I play either instrument and spend time honing technique the more I improve or maintain and enjoy playing. Slight changes in technique between the two are not a problem, unless...

    Re: Eddie Van Halen with a mandolin.

    Makes sense, Caleb, Eddie would play or attempt to play music on any instrument he touched, especially a stringed instrument. I couldn’t imagine that he’d pose with a mandolin and not play it,...
