    Re: Amanda Lynn

    I know (and worked with) a girl named Amanda Lynn evidently the pun had never occurred to her parents.

    Re: What Do You Use for Editing Standard Notation

    I've been using Sibelius since version 1.4.

    (I bought Dorico when it first came out, and have even kept it up to date, but I still haven't gotten around to using it.)

    So, just skip the PDF step ;) they're only there in case you find an exercise hard enough to need getting it under your fingers before tackling the video.

    Most of the exercises are simple enough...

  7. Re: 1957 Fender Mandocaster Fingerboard Cleanup?

    It's a blonde '57, with the contoured body and the V-neck?

    Re: Major chord arpeggios

    Well, there's "learning" and "doing" you can learn the notes of a scale in a few minutes, but you'll spend the rest of your life trying to play them as cleanly and fast and melodic as possible....
  10. Re: Truss rod: Too tight? And still a string-ward bow.

    I'm no luthier, but my two cents is that I snapped a truss rod on a Gibson once, in my back-in-the-day starving-musician attempt to lower the action my answer is "not as much as I did!"

    It's not a system that can be used or rejected it's a way of stating the obvious: Because (a) the major scale is asymmetrical, and (b) ya got four fingers, then a+b= you're going to get four...

    Re: We don't need no steenking flat picks!

    Being a pianist first and foremost, I've thought about trying that now and then but never gave it go (although I do play with a pick and the other three fingers quite a bit on electric).

    The late jazz improvisation teacher Adolph Sandole called this the "Harmonic Line" (although it wasn't always the 3rd or 7th it was whatever stood out and didn't jump around).

    Jeff, I've spent years going to open mic/blues jams trying to find the electric mandolin's rightful role in that guitar-dominated genre, and feel reasonably successful in having accomplished that...

    Re: tunes for electric mandolin

    For me, "tunes" aren't where it's at all the Irish Trad I play is on acoustic.
    The electric is for rock, jazz and blues, niches where electric guitar wears the trousers.

    Re: "Playing the circle of fifths"

    Even a model as simple as the Circle of Fifths can be misrepresentative, and confusing if you're trying to understand what's the deal with keys.

    I used Hey Joe as an example because it's the longest string of continuous "IV-of-the-IV-of-the..." that I could think of five of 'em. Would you call Parker's "Blues for Alice",...

    Re: "Playing the circle of fifths"

    The point is that rock progressions travel around the circle of fifths in the same way that jazz progressions do, but in the opposite direction.

    Ya think? What about "With A Little Help From My Friends"? "Desire" by U2? Any of a thousand rock tunes that go D A E?

    Jazz progressions go from left to right, eg Em7 A7 Dm7 G7 C.
    Rock progressions go from right to left, eg Hey Joe: C G D A E.
