    Re: Mandolin recommendation for new player

    Of the three I'd lean towards Eastman or Kentucky. Keeping your eyes peeled for second hand ones via the classifieds here could move the Eastman more into your range. Like Alfons I've found the Loars...

    Ha! I used to walk by Johnny Roadhouse Music all the time when I lived in Manchester back in the early '90's, blast from the past!
  9. Re: We've said it before, we'll say it again.

    Re: more accurate clip on tuner than Snark?

    I have a Polytune and a Peterson Strobo-clip. My go to tuner for mandolin and tenor banjo is the Polytune, very reliable - I keep the stroboclip in my acoustic guitar case because I find that it...
  15. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    Your mileage may vary, but for me learning from TAB reminds me of traveling around London on the Tube - you get where you're going but you don't have a great idea of where you are in relation to...

  17. Re: The Wind That Shakes The Barley - Irish Reel

    Nice one pluckinstrings - just a wee heads up that in Irish music reels, jigs, hornpipes etc. are referred to as "tunes" with "songs" being reserved for music that is sung.
