  1. Re: What's the difference between Tenor and guitar tuned in fifth

    Short answer:

    Yes. And still playing 6-string 5ths-tuned. :grin:


    Long answers: :whistling:

    1. (a) In the 1970s I played an old steel-bodied National tenor guitar tuned in fifths, GDAE,...
  2. Re: The merciless camera (recording ourselves as a reality check)

    On the other side of the coin... After a certain point, occasionally you may notice *nice* things :mandosmiley: about your own playing - things that sound good in the video, but you didn't even...

    Re: Random mandolin sightings

    Sesame Street, S49 E27 "Little Bo Peep Lost Her Cow", :)) has a mandolin-shaped prop/model of some sort being 'played' by one of the puppets. Screenshots below. Click pics to make bigger:

    Re: Why Mandolin?

    There was one in the house when I was a kid. My dad played, but he did that tremolo stuff (pretty waltzes and such) and strummed chords for singing. Nice to listen to, but I didn't feel the bug to...

    Re: Picking technique on electric mandolin?

    One of these years I'm going to build (out of whatever scrap and/or cheap materials I can find) a quickie 8-string electric mandolin-tuned object, :grin: and it will have 8 frets. :disbelief:...

    True, but there was an unexpected problem after I did that last year. Unfortunately, that particular iteration of v3.x reassigned a bunch of my Windows file associations - things that the Musescore...

    Re: MuseScore software

    I do, but I'm still using the older version 2.1 which I'm quite happy with. :mandosmiley:

    But I don't like the changes they made in version 3. (Too much to list here.) We'll see if the eventual...
  8. Re: How can I convert unsearchable PDF files to searchable PDF fi

    Well I thought I'd found a clever solution to the problem, but it creates another problem.

    This part works:
    Export as image, re-import that image to new pdf document, then OCR that and re-save...

    This quickie video shows how I add a picture to my posts here, using a Windows computer and Chrome browser. I don't know if it's the 'right' method or not, but it seems to work for me... YMMV....

    I can but I choose not to. :grin: I like the vibes of it slow.

  17. Re: Gibson opposes Collings' headstock trademark registration, ci

    Mind-boggling. The headstocks in question don't look anything at all alike.

    Why doesn't Gibson just trademark the whole 8-string idea while they're at it, make everyone else go 7-string or...

    Some of the music styles, probably yeah. But mandolin was not my dad's main/best instrument by far, and his mandolin playing could probably have benefited from more dynamics or expression or...

    Re: the first 3 tunes you learned?

    1. Yet another "Soldier's Joy". :whistling: Must be the most common oldtime dance tune ever!

    For normal conditions, the following works for me anyway, using a slightly older version of TablEdit (v2.78b1c). This technique might not be effective if the music has timing errors though.
