    Re: Mandocello "strum along" chords

    You mentioned a mandocello tuned in pairs.... I thought I had seen that somewhere. And I had, on Youtube. The sound quality is not good, but, with a little imagination, you might be able to see if...

    From what I hear, quite a few folk musicians who play the 'cello (both the them) have done this, albeit they seem to be after the cleaner tone. I had one of the C strings on my Eastman "unravel" and...

    As Dave Sheets suggested and others mention, I would seriously consider a powered PA speaker or keyboard amp. I have an Eastman MC with an LR Baggs Anthem installed, and used a Carvin AG200 which...

    I think it's great that we have a nice selection of well-made, reasonably-priced OMs on the market today. I like Trinity College's instruments (I used to own one fo their mandolas.) After viewing...

    John Hartford was known for doing that, and sometimes dance a bit, too. Not all that uncommon among old-time fiddlers, either. But yeah, I can't chew gum and play at the same time.

    Re: Scale length for Octave Mandolin

    I have an Eastman, which is 21-inch and works fine. My Tenor is 20 inches, and also works fine. The longer scale results in slightly higher tension, and should have a slightly crisper sound, all else...

    Re: Are tenor guitars slightly evil?

    Yep. They are evil and destructive. And highly addictive, too.

    My tenor seemed so intent on mass-destruction that I restrung it as an OM. This seemed to dampen its desire for world domination.

    Thanks for the info. The string sizes look like a nice, moderate step up.

    I also checked out your videos. Nice. "Gammelgarden" is a special treat.
