    Re: Process of learning a classical tune

    Regarding tablature, I use it all the time for lute and baroque guitar music (because that's the storage medium in which that music was originally composed, albeit earlier incarnations of tab). I...

    Re: Process of learning a classical tune

    I still say look for patterns: let's say the piece begins with a rising scalar figure (as in C E F A or Do Mi Fa La..); then what? Does it come back down, or extend at the higher range? Does it do a...

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld Strings

    Thomastik 174's are on my Collings mandola. Medium gauge I believe. (when in doubt, go for medium. Then you know which way to go if you want a change.)

    Phosphor bronze bulk purchase from JustStrings. On this mando I use .011, .015, .022, .034, .048. I can imagine a strong tone with beefier strings but I do not want any neck bowing.

    Nice transcription, Jordan. One more thing for me to try and get under the fingers! A fun tune to play.
  14. Re: Once A Week Jethro Burns Mandolin Playing Discussion

    I wish I could have met Jethro. Bet we would have been buddies, although I'm sure he never met a mandolin player he didn't like ('cept ol' Bill:) ). I have been lucky enough to have some time with...
  15. Once A Week Jethro Burns Mandolin Playing Discussion

    Howdy! I was wondering if any swingin' mandolin pickers would be interested in a once-a-week discussion of Jethro Burns ideas and approach to the mandolin and music? We can pick one tune to look over...

  17. Re: Practice Schedules for Multi-Instrumentalists

    I don't have any advice other than don't give up! It takes a while, actually a long while to get your embouchure together and feeling like you finally know what you're doing. Every flute player I've...

    Lane Pryce is buying some Monels. I prefer flatwound strings for the type of music I'm playing. And I'm very happy with EFW74's and Thomastik 154's. GHS N250's are my top pick for wound strings next...
