  1. Re: Thin Lizzy song: a step into the unknown for me

    Thanks for the reply, but you've lost me. If the A string is taken down a semitone, then your opening notes are G# B G# C#. I don't see any of those notes in the D minor scale.

  2. Thin Lizzy song: a step into the unknown for me

    As some of you will know, I have previously tried - with reasonable success - to produce a mandolin tablature for a couple of rock songs, but in each case based only on the vocal.

    And I'm sure you could sing brilliantly in a foreign language when you had just turned thirteen.

    The Warning recently signed a record deal, and also went down a storm on The Ellen Show.

    After a lot of hard listening, here is my assessment of what Pau sings:

    I did not know the song Dream of the Archer, but have just listened to it. My inexperienced ear seemed to pick up the notes E and F# (above C4), as well as a chord which might have been E - not...

    Re: Musical mnemonics

    I now have a mnemonic for a minor scale, and fortunately it is not defamatory: take some time to savour the taste.

    Yes, I know - the one about Take That is more memorable.

    Re: Inspired by Jamie Lynn

    So I've finally got round to trying to identify a mandolin tablature for a JLS song, and I've opted for Big Bad World.

    I don't know about other countries, but if you fell for this scam here in the UK, then you might be in breach of money laundering laws.

    Re: Camille and Kennerley

    They are an inspiration not just to harp players but to players of melodic instruments generally - and of course you can get a perfectly good mandolin for a lot less than six thousand dollars.

    That does make sense, yes - A# rather than B. I was working on a scale, which is why I used the B.
