    Re: Warm up song

    After some tuning and noodling, I like to play President Garfields and President Grant’s hornpipes to warm up with. Both tunes are in Bb and if I play them in 1st position, my left hand gets a good...

    Lynn Dudenbostel is in Maryville. It’s on the other side of the state but he’s a go to guy as you say.

    Re: Mandolin Tab for Bach Invention #4

    I’ve played this piece many times and even performed it with Caterina Lichtenberg at a music camp. All the notation I’ve seen for this has it in 3/4 time with mostly eighth notes. The bars you’re...

    Re: First Bandolim

    I’m into the Choro thing as well. I love the sound that my Northfield F5S makes, but like you I wanted something that sounds more like the recordings I’m listening to. After searching the web and...

    Re: Tone Gard - Comfortable ?

    I have one on all my mandolins. I don’t even notice it’s there. I also like that it serves as a counterbalance to the headstock. Try one and if you don’t care for it, it could be easily sold here in...
  13. Re: Flatiron 1N (The one that got away) and Northfield Calhoun

    Looks nice, I'll have to check into it. Thanks for the input. How does it differ from the F5S[/QUOTE]

    It is very different. Best I can describe is the Beavertail sound kind of blooms out and rings...
  14. Re: Flatiron 1N (The one that got away) and Northfield Calhoun

    The OP sounds like me a few months ago. I too own a Northfield F5S and was looking to diversify my sonic palette. I play a bit of classical and am really into choro at the moment and wanted something...

    Question for flat top players

    Hey. I recently acquired a Sawchyn Beavertail. I have light strings (.38-.10) on now with pretty low action. I would like to move up to a medium set (.40-.11). Any thoughts about that?
  16. Re: What are your favorite albums featuring mandolin?

    I’m really digging Road Trip. By John Reischman and John Miller right now. Lots of tasty mandolin playing on that album.

    Re: Arm rest. Y or N?

    In addition to the benefits already stated above, I find that an armrest helps offset the weight of the headstock. Especially on an F5 shape with a tonegard on.

    Re: Northfield F5S arriving soon

    Welcome to the club! I purchased my F5S 5 years ago. It sounded great on day one and just kept getting better each day thereafter. Enjoy.

    Re: Caterina Lichtenberg‘s On-line course

    I’m a subscriber as well. I’m pretty sure it is one of the only online course for classical mandolin out there. As Kurth stated, you should be able to read standard notation and have more than an...

    Re: What has your mandolin been called?

    I was playing my octave on stage and a fellow came up and said “what is that an oud?” Seemed odd that he knew of an oud but not a big mandolin. Another time I was in the park playing some of the...
