    Re: Chris Thile: Too Many Notes!!

    Very funny, and we are taking this way too seriously. He just got married, he can write a funny song, he can make fun of himself, and (So I have heard) can play the mandolin. So great job.

    Re: Capo conspiracy?

    I often wonder if there is an alternative universe where Lester Flatt used bar chords instead of a capo and playing in C and G, but Monroe used open chords .....would guitar players be having the...

    Re: Has anyone reviewed on-line mandolin courses?

    I joined the banjobenclark.com early on when it was a little less expensive but it is still less than the M. Marshall Academy and you get access to three instrument lessons (banjo, guitar, mando)...

    Two things to add as the photographer of Alex and the mandolin. The owner did mention it was cross tuned when it was played. He also has photographs of Mr. Monroe signing it (or a very similar F5L)...

    It is hard to tell over the interweb what is the best, I think all three would be a step up. I only have one question, should or are you willing to offer the amount you were willing to put toward the...
  11. Re: I think i may have gotten some wrong information.

    I came from gtr as well, and I think if palm mute works why not. However, I would say , since I play bluegrass and/or with banjos no one would hear me if I muted. But in a coffee house situation with...
  12. Re: Did Pete Seeger really coin the phrase "hammer on"?

    I saw documentary on him and he claims it, and his very influential book "How to play the five string banjo" does use it. I have heard other artist site him as welll. Now there is the Wikipedia page...
  13. Re: Beginner Q: Should I learn every single scale or is that dumb

    I think apart the ones mentioned, if you play in bluegrass jams (due banjo players and guitar positions) you will see a lot of G and A. You say you have zero skills in the lead dept. I assume you...

    Re: What is going on with this mandolin???

    I looked at this in slow motion, and I think the tape is over the E string only, maybe to mute it when he is doing open chords. Weird anyway.

    Re: A few of basic (stupid) new person questions

    1) I would stick with the standard D chord (no thumb). The reason is your transition to other chords/scales/arpeggios will be easier.
    2) Buy a bunch of different ones and see which is most...

    I agree w/ santiago. I have an eastman and I was very protective until the first ding, and now I pass most stuff/dings off as "played" "distressed" . Of course I don't play vintage mando's for this...

    Re: Follow Along With Sheet Music While Listening?

    I think the point Jeff D is making, if I can be so bold, is once you get used to notation, you stop thinking in EGBDF-FACE. It is a language, I do not think of the word "word" as W-O-R-D I think of...
