    Re: Please critique my playing

    Re: Tab Converter Guitar - Mandolin

    Simon, if you use or might think of using MuseScore (free to download notation software) it can do what you ask here. I use it for all my notation needs and it can do so very much more than I use it...

    Re: post a video of yourself

    I just posted this one on the SAW group earlier and thought I would put it here too. It is Blair Douglas's lovely tribute to all the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. I...

    I used ash on one of my early instruments, about 15 years ago, John. Back and sides with a spruce top. I played it regularly then sold it to someone who heard it being played and liked the sound. ...

    Re: B7b9

    B7b9 and BMaj7b9 are two different chords, Tony. The 7th has a flattened 7th tone, so in B7 this would be A, whereas in BMaj7 it would be A# (as Journeybear has noted in his posting). In playing...

    Re: A new baroque mandolin

    Another fine creation, Jo, and it sounds great too in the video clip. Those rosettes you create are always such lovely things. Is is tuned in 5ths, and what are the five courses?

    Re: ill keep on loving you

    Great, toe-tapping number and well performed by the vocalist and two instrumentalists! The banjo/mandolin and fiddle go so well together.
