    Re: Help with musical notation and tabs

    Welcome MandoKenn! It looks like the tab is telling you to play the root of the F chord, i.e., third fret of the D string, and then strum the chord. It is hard to imagine what would be accomplished...

    Re: Speakers for mixing

    KRK Rokits are quite popular for home studios. I have a pair I use in a space about the same size as yours. My space constraints are such that I need to take them out and put them away each time. If...
  3. Re: New double concerto for mandolin and mandola

    I enjoyed that! I looked closely on a big monitor and I see a mic stand at the right knee of the mandolin and mandola. There is a speaker on the left just behind the violins and another on the...

    Re: Question on staccato marking

    In what Jim uploaded, I see staccato marks on the eighth notes at the beginning of the second to last line. In the measures just before there is a phrasing mark that means tremolo. So at the...

    Hi, Jim! We had sheet music, an audio track, written instructions from Achille, our conductor, but no video. We each recorded our individual parts and uploaded them to a shared location. Then the...

    Re: Mahler 7 Tonight (7/7/20)

    That’s a very enjoyable performance!

    Tom, any insights into why Mahler included a mandolin? In looking at the score it is used sparingly. (Must be fun counting all of those rests.) I played a...

    Re: Fingering Technique

    I think that tree captures it nicely! We have the general approach of two frets per finger. But depending upon the music being played that may not be the most effective approach. It’s all influenced...

    Re: How serious is this?

    Could be the dreaded neck separation. This causes the strings to be too high above the neck to play.

    Re: Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring

    I think it depends upon the arrangement you are playing. There are plenty of arrangements out there that do not require shifting to a higher position. However there are some that reach up to C at the...

    Re: Which strings for a 1915 bowlback?

    Not on your list but GHS A240 ultra light are a good choice. They are 9-32 as pops1 suggests. Heavier strings can damage a bowlback and render it unplayable.

    Re: How to enhance mando for legato piece

    That’s a cool project! Are you playing the entire piece or part of it? The entire piece does not look easy. In the Violin 2 part on IMSLP, some places are marked as tremolo. I agree with David that...

    6/8, 9/8, and 12/8 are compound meters meaning that each beat divides into three parts. So in 6/8 the first three eighth notes are one beat and the second three eighth notes are the second beat. So...
