    Congrats on returning to work, your new mando and your 25 years sober! All great things! I'm sure that Northfield will be killer. I have been drooling over a 4th Gen for months and have so far been...

    Re: D'Addario Monel sets

    I just recently put on a set of Curt Mangan monels and I really like them so far. I would say as good as D'addario.
    What I really like is the "custom medium" gauges which I had grown to prefer when...
  7. Re: Gender and age distribution of mando players

    For a little extra data, I looked at the last 50+ video exchanges on Mike Marshall's ArtistWorks site. The female student percentage was roughly 40%. Closer to 50% recently. Ages ranged from kids to...
  8. Re: Speed the band w fiddle & Northfield Octave Mand

    I like it a lot! Before I bought it I played the archtop also and they were both really cool, but very different. Lots of pinky exercise on it!

    Re: Northfield is simply nailing it lately

    I will say that prior to last summer I was a bit more skeptical (and uneducated) on Northfield.
    After going to Swannanoa Gathering and spending several hours talking to Adrian, I was sold on it....
  12. Re: Mike Marshall's Virtual Mandolin Orchestra

    It was great fun to participate in, as is Mike's class anyway! Martin did a fantastic job putting it all together.

    Re: Swannanoa Gathering 2020 cancelled

    Definitely bummed that it's cancelled, but I wouldn't be too excited about sharing a dorm and cafeteria with a bunch of people right now either, so probably the right call. :crying:

    I couldn't connect via the laptop but got in easily on my phone and iPad, not sure why.

  16. Re: Jazz Mandolin Appetizers -- original tune names

    I bought this before I knew a thing about playing jazz/swing. It was helpful but a little over my head at the time. Now that I know one or two things about playing it I need to go back to it.

    Re: I Hate Playing Chords

    Sherry, you might try out an online teacher that can see what you're struggling with and help out.
    I'd highly recommend ArtistWorks with Mike Marshall but there are lots of others out there. Lots of...

    Re: I Hate Playing Chords

    I think one thing to consider would be what type of music and what other instruments you will be playing with. Based on that, you might need to focus on more open sounding ringing chords, or ones...

    Re: Changing strings--winding and leaving?

    There are a ton of different ways you can do it, try a few of them and decide what you like best.
