    Re: Solo builders

    I’ve an A5 on order from Mike Black. Full appointments, first-class everything with varnish finish, and the price is very modest. He was doing final sanding a few days ago. The cost is so reasonable...

    Re: Time Sensitive: Your opinions needed ASAP

    Airlines are committed to letting musical instruments travel in the overhead, if they will fit, and if there is room. But check the airline's website and you should find a musical instrument policy. ...

    Re: Eva Scow - After You've Gone

    I like them all, but she was on fire for After You've Gone. Wow!

    George Benson's solo was kind of lame by comparison.

    Re: Electric mandolin

    After hearing Eva Scow on hers, that Godin is my first thought for electric in any price range. I have one of the Fender reissues that’s fun and was cheap, but no longer made.

    Re: "Playing the circle of fifths"

    Re: tunes for electric mandolin

    I agree it doesnít fit into any conventional music very well, except for Western Swing. And itís conventional in that genre only because some great musicians played it. I like playing tunes on it...

    Re: tunes for electric mandolin

    My idea for electric was to use it for chord melody on standards, which is very much a work in progress for me. lol

    Re: "Playing the circle of fifths"

    Educate your mind and your ear will follow along with it. Itís only 12 keys, C on top, Gb on the bottom, so now you only have 10 more! Should take 15 minutes to learn. The downside is that, if you...

    Re: Stiernberg and Weinstein video lessons

    Re: I Hate Playing Chords

    Melodies are mostly made of chord tones, and different ways to connect them. My first instrument is a woodwind too, and I practice chords continuously. Music is, first of all, a craft.

    Re: The Mandocrucian's Digest
