    Re: Fiddle Tune (and more)

    I fully believe the author should get full credit - but it should say "arranged by" ( or maybe deranged by?) when it's traditional

    We would not be able to cover chord theory in it's entirety here but with only 4 possible simultaneous tones on mandolin as opposed to 6 on guitar ( that us mere mortals can only manage) when you...

    Re: Kimble or Duff F5?

    I've never owned either an never played a Duff, but I have played a few Kimbles ( both F5 and A5) and coveted them dearly. Kimble generally has very good reviews.

    Re: Trouble hearing "in tune" unison strings

    I have the same issue, and if the strings tune open but not fretted, then something is up with the bridge placement.

    The 7th fret harmonic of the A is the same as the 12th of the E,
