  1. Re: Creating New Fiddle Tunes (Mandolin Tunes, Technically Speaki

    I wrote what I thought was the most beautiful Am waltz a few years ago and then realized I had just put Jerusalem Ridge into 3/4 time! :))
  2. Re: Creating New Fiddle Tunes (Mandolin Tunes, Technically Speaki

    As mentioned above, Jay Ungar is one good example. Over on the Irish trad side of the fence, there have been many popular tunes written since the 1940's by fiddlers like Seán Ryan, Paddy Fahey, Liz...

    Re: Mandolin Recording: Can't Figure This Out

    I use the much less expensive Audio-Technica shockmounts on my SDC mics, I think it's the model AT8410a that sells for around $60 USD. Works fine with my KM184's, Mojave MA-100's, and Royer ribbon...

    Re: Scrolls on Peghead now patented by Gibson?

    ...which they've been doing relentlessly since 1986.
  6. Re: Scrolls on Peghead now patented by Gibson?

    The only reason there are so many mandolin builders in the first place is that Gibson for all practical purposes abandoned making mandolins, not completely but definitely anything resembling the F-5...

    Re: List of essential Irish session tunes.

    Well, it's a good question and I've never figured this one out either. :)

    First off, if you're talking about joining a local session, then I'll agree with the advice to visit that one session and...

    Re: Home Recording Setup

    Yes. They're fine - the issue with Oktava's has always been quite a lot of variability, or at least, used to be. I have not tried any recent ones, modded or unmodified, though. In the SD department,...

    Re: Mandolin Recording: Can't Figure This Out

    That's a really open-ended question. How much money have you got?:)

    All I can tell you is what I'm using, which is based on slowly building up a mic collection over 20 years on a non-pro,...

    My favourite video for explaining tempo for Irish reels and jigs is this one, which also explains why reels (and indeed jigs) should be considered as having two beats to a bar, regardless of whether...

    Re: How long, really, until I can unpack it...

    If you go outside and unpack it, the temperature should be about the same. Then you can warm yourself up by playing it for a couple of hours while you gradually bring it inside.

    Re: E string keeps jumping out of nut slot

    It is weird that the behavior changed, unless a small chip has broken off the nut (sometimes likely since it is at the edge), or your winding style changed.

    Wow, live and learn! The 355 body is a tiny bit narrower than the mando or the tele so the clamp would need adjustment to snug it up, but it's not different by much.
