    Re: Mandolin to DADGAD

    If you learn guitar in DADGAD, that’s how you’ll understand and approach guitar. Same would be true for standard tuning. I see no reason not to jump right into what you actuality want to do with...

    Re: Autumn is for playing mandolin.

    I have a few I do with vocals and mandolin - 'La Vie en Rose,' Chaplin's 'Smile,' the old nursery rhyme 'Lavenders Blue' come to mind. When vocals work with the mandolin, it works really well. When...

    Autumn is for playing mandolin.

    I tried but mandolin never really became my primary instrument. I'm a guitar player at heart; I can never get too far away from singing songs with my acoustic guitar. But I still love my mandolin. ...

    Re: Eddie Van Halen RIP

    For those interested, here is a lesser known acoustic side of EVH. I might have remembered this wrong, but it seems like in a guitar mag interview around the time VHIII came out, Ed said he owned...

    Re: Eddie Van Halen RIP

    I don't disagree about George Harrison. EVH was the Harrison of the late 70s/80s. He got kids interested in playing guitar, like Harrison did before him. It always bothered me how Eddie sort of...

    Re: Eddie Van Halen RIP

    I was deeply saddened to hear of his passing. Being an 80s kid, EVH was a big part of my life. Every boy in my generation at some point wanted to play guitar, and mostly because of Eddie. I...
