    Re: Gone Away - a little ditty I wrote

    I took this mandolin instrumental and mashed it up with a song I wrote in Feb 2021. I changed the key and tempo and it fit right in. I recorded my first solo record, week before last. Oct 10 - 13, &...

    Beauty!
  3. Re: Good Tone - How long does it actually take?

    Try recording yourself playing and then listen to it. I'm pretty new too but I do that a lot... practice, play, record, listen, repeat.

  7. Re: Angeline The Baker, with Drums and Stuff

    Cool, I'm always down for weird stuff. How'd you post that so the play button shows up?

    Did you catch my Kanye West cover? Mine won't show the play button, you have to download the song.

    Re: Second Breakfast

    I like it. Makes me think of the mandolin part in Spinal Tap (Stonehenge) and the line in The Lord of the Rings... "He doesn't know about second breakfast?"

  12. Mandolin cover of Kanye West Hip Hop/Rap

    I don't listen to much hip hop/rap but I have a few songs. I thought Welcome to Heartbreak by Kayne West had a cool riff so I figured I'd learn it on mandolin. I record and tinker in GarageBand so I...

    Re: A basic classical piece

    Do you read treble clef? Try The Complete Mandolinist by Marilynn Mair. Lots of simple, short "classical style" pieces right off the bat and they gradually increase in difficulty.

  19. Re: The weight balance between the head and body

    I didn't like the way my Eastman MD315 balanced either... especially with the strap around the f curl. I started putting a thin piece of leather under the strings below the nut. It balances great...

    Re: First Purchase Recommendation

    I've been playing about 3 months and I'm pretty happy with both my Eastman MD315 and Northfield Calhoun. Both under $1000.
