    Re: Hector the Hero

    I love this tune.
    I just tried it in A harmonic minor, just out of interest, to see what it was like.

    I ‘m wondering if the tremolo should be played in groups of six, or four?

    Re: Maybe it's just me...but I like this

    Really nice, thanks, would anyone one be kind enough to share the TAB?
    Yes it is much harder to play a solid rhythm slow than fast.
    Good job!

    Re: Online percussive dance tutorials?

    Yes, but maybe not as smoothly. I’ve tried a bit on the octave mandolin, not easy(!) but easier on the small electric ukulele bass (in fifths). The problem is that the technique is close to doing...

    Re: Online percussive dance tutorials?

    Hey Gunnar,
    this isn’t so much a lesson, but the rhythm is something else -these guys are cookin’!
    I was wondering if the men and women dance differently to this music? Not sure what the dance...

  10. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    I have a small bass ukulele tuned in fifths which is a lot of fun to play, and going from octave mandolin there’s very little extra practice needed.

    BUT I have to say that in a physical sense,...

    Nice one Elliot, I saw parachord for about $50 one time -for about two kilometres of the stuff. It wasn’t full breaking strain but guaranteed at least like 150 pounds.

    Re: How to play harmony

    Thanks David, though it’s the second next chord note.
    This means that for example in the key of G, if the melody note is G then the harmony note would be two chord notes up -that is B.
    And it’s a...

    Re: Right Hand Technique

    I’ve just tried this... and it works.
    I had a tune that I always had problems with, even slowly. Now I understand, I was looking at the wrong hand.

    Re: Looking for some recommendations

    I haven’t read Mandolin for Dummies but I’ve read a fair few of the others in the series (in libraries). I found them difficult to get through.

    Re: Andy Tobin Cedar Bouzouki Build Diary

    Unfair Reinhardt!
    You hear this song, and then it really doesn't matter what the maid looks like.
    Though of course, a beautiful instrument too.

    Really nice work, Andy.

    Re: Colored notes in TablEdit

    It’s not notes, lower than the G, that are too low to be played on the mandolin fretboard?
    You can get those to re appear by highlighting (just them) and upping the pitch by one octave?
