    Re: Paul Shippey Tone Mandolin

    Wow! It really looks great. Congratulations!
  2. Re: What's your favorite song by Kris Kristofferson? Here's mine.

    The banjo player keeps leaning down over his instrument as if he couldn't hear it, but in the recording you can barely hear anything else. The camera angle suggests that the microphone may have been...
  3. Re: Newbie here, suffering from analysis paralysis

    I tend to agree with the idea that the most important thing about a first mandolin is to buy it!

    There exists the argument that a cheap instrument makes you less likely to persist in learning to...
  4. Re: Gavotta: "Dolci carezze" (I. Bitelli, 1916)

    Nice melody, nice arrangement, nicely played. I liked how the accompaniment supports the melody without getting in the way. Good way to start the day!

    Re: Noob. Hiya!

    Welcome, Calum! I also have a Vintage brand mandolin, which now lives in my office and gets played after work at least once a week. I'm in Kent, so I also play some Morris tunes. But I've only played...

    Re: New to the cafe

    A thing that really helps with rhythm is to listen to a lot of music. Any genre will do. But exposure to music is essential to get that rhythm in your blood. When you find yourself tapping your foot...

    Re: I need some serious help...

    I hardly know any of the songs you mentioned, but a chop chord on the 2 and 4 in 4/4 time is a good starting point. As you become more secure in this, and get used to the songs and the other players,...
  9. Re: Open chords vs closed chords for chops n chucks

    Scale length and neck width are so important! In Celtic music, where the mandolin is mostly a melody instrument, it's fairly common to find mandolins with a longer or wider neck to suit converted...

    Re: Left hand

    I'm obviously not getting it. What's unusual about how she holds the mandolin?

    Wow! Very professional and impressive.
  16. Poll: Re: Poll for Song a Week Social Group Week #490

    Having these three videos is great because we can hear the tunes before voting. I voted outside of my usual genre this time. Without the video, I'd never even have known the tune!

    Re: Darkest pick

    You know, this thing about hitting the strings at an angle is something I've been told in every workshop and most instructional videos I've seen. So it still surprises me when slapping the strings...

    The tone from your mandolin is just beautiful. I've subscribed to your YouTube channel.

    Following a resolution to play more music and learn more tunes in 2019, I'm making at least a modest dent in my to-do list.

    Sounds exciting! Is there a recording of this session?

    My three-year-old surprised me the other day by finding one of my picks around the house, handing it to me, and saying it was "for guitar"....

    Interesting pieces! I've never heard them before. Would you consider them typical of the place and time they were composed?
