    Re: Skype video-based Practice Group

    I would absolutely love to hunker at Skype with a like-genred mandolin player. I play a bunch of non-bluegrass (celtic, choro, latin, italian, etc, mostly Irish). ~Jen

    Re: Playing fast is easy

    When I play fast, my noting clarity and tone go out the window, and I'd rather sound good than fast. I can play fast-moving tremelo, but fast tempo is difficult. I sure would like to know how to...
  4. Re: What is the strangest/most interesting place you have played?

    In the BlackHawk car museum, surrounded by cars of course, at a dinner thing, for some French consulate (and we were frisked by security before going in!)

    Re: custom bridge placement

    Got it. Great advice. I didn't specify though, how far off of the original position ; looks like a little over a 1/8 inch on the 'e' side, and less than an 1/8th on the 'g' side. Maybe the...

    Re: custom bridge placement

    Oh , I didn't mean like that I *see* it moving, I just meant in theory, how I understand the instrument moves under tension, in heat, in cold. I leave on e and one g under more tension to test...

    Re: custom bridge placement

    Hello Hans, yes, very sage advice. I have a few friends who are very knowlegable about mandolin construction, and well, it was from their advice I try moving the bridge. I never have more than...

    custom bridge placement

    Recently I changed the gauge on my strings (D'Addario J74's) and I don't know if that was the cause, but I noticed the intonation was off at the 12th fret, pretty far. So last night I put a fresh...

    Re: Grisman 80's Releases

    Oh, see, I don't have my cronology straight, for sure. :)) It's evident that the quintet conception was still maliable at the time.

    Re: Grisman 80's Releases

    To me, these records around Quintet '80 were before I was really sentient in the acoustic instrumental music, and pre-mandolin playing years. I started collecting Dawg recordings (later cd's when...

    Re: Grisman 80's Releases

    Wow you explain it so well. I didn't realize Quintet '80 was such a situation, though I suspected as much. I too had an old beat-up tape someone lent me of Quintet '80, and I think that was the...

    Wow, thanks. I will surely find some friends here to jam with when we get our webcam. One thing I have always wanted to try is composing and playing harmonies with another mando, but in the flesh,...

    Wow, I can't believe a tenor guitar forum. I have a Martin tenor, mohogany, nothing fancy, that I've got tuned GDAE. I have a difficult time getting it to sound bright, and it's likely the...

    Re: Grisman 80's Releases

    I think Quintet '80 was one of the great albums, he definitely played a Monteleone Grand Artist on this record, and M.Marshall was 2nd mando I believe. Some of the tunes got rerecorded on Dawgwood,...

    webcam practice?

    Hi everybody. I was wondering if any of you have a webcam that you use to practice with others a distance away. I imagine there's some sort of time offset lag, but, just wondering if it's possible...
