    2 way truss rod for a mandola

    Would it be OK to use a 2 way truss rod for a mandola neck?
    Does the nut have to go to the bottom of the slot?

    Re: About To Finish My First Build

    It’s purdy exciting that you’re finishing up. I used Zinnser sealer for my first build. It worked purdy good. I rubbed about 14 coats of Tru-oil over that and it still looks good.

    Re: “Mineola Rag”

    I’m sorry, I can’t read music. I learned it by ear. I slowed down some YouTube videos
    and played them over and over until the tunewas pounded into my head.
    I’m glad you enjoyed the video. Thanks...

    “Mineola Rag”

    Re: Looking for tab for "Canada Day Swing"

    Have you tried lowering the playback speed of the YouTube video? This makes it much easier to learn by ear.
