    Re: Any Baritone guitar players here?

    I like them for fingerstyle mainly, so prefer acoustic. It would also be totally cool to have a bluegrass band with a baritone guitar, mandola, viola, gold tone missing link banjo, and a normal bass....

    Re: Any Baritone guitar players here?

    I have only played an electric baritone once, but I loved it and totally want an acoustic one. I believe Alvarez makes a decent quality one for about $500 which might go over slightly better with...

    Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    No, I don't play Mozambique music, cuz it's mostly Brazilian radio, and not very stylistically interesting to me (too much like pop and rap). I'm not originally from here, I was born in Texas, to...

    Oops double post.

    Flat top mandolins do work well in ITM
  6. Re: Help me find a mando for my 10 yr old daughter

    A used Kentucky would probably be great. Also look into the possibility of a flat top mandolin, a used red valley or big muddy (mid MO) can be found for very reasonable prices, and also Sonny Morris'...

    Re: Year old mandolin

    I've only had my mandolin since March, and already the finish is very cloudy where my pinky rests, there's a ding on the corner of the headstock (I'm pretty sure that wall moved) and one big face...

    Re: Back in action

    Welcome back to the internet and the mandolin! I can't say either has gotten more friendly, but the mandolin isn't any less fun!

    Ok, I'll see about starting learning that, is the fingerings similar enough to use the OAIM flute course? I also play harmonica, Trumpet and bamboo piccolo, so I'm familiar with the...

    Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    Ok, I asked cuz my mom has a (very nice and expensive) silver flute, but I couldn't even hold it up last time I tried to play it. I would rather play a wooden one (I have a bamboo piccolo tuned the...

    Is a classical flute played the same as an Irish one? My mom has a silver classical flute, but I don't know if Irish flutes have keys?

    All y'all's talk about how hard Uilleann pipes are is making me want to learn them even more! I've not yet met an instrument that I couldn't play after a few months of committed practice

    Yeah, and I had a metronome app on a previous phone, but it was always way too quiet so I haven't gotten one again. There's no music stores anywhere close to me, and a real metronome is priced out of...
