    Love this tune too. It’s one that I especially like for practicing tremolo, as well. Thanks for sharing this great rendition. I really enjoyed it.
  3. Re: looking for nylon string instrument 4 strings tuned in 5ths,

    Just FYI, I’m using quite a nice LoPrinzi walnut soprano and will say that the tuning just does not bring out the best in the instrument just as uke tuning does not do a mandolin justice. I’d like to...

    Re: Describe your MAS progression

    On reading recommendations here on MC, I bought a used 09 American Breedlove A style f-hole about 5 years ago. It’s a very nice instrument and easy to play. It certainly isn’t holding me back and I...

    Re: Major chord arpeggios

    This is really the same approach that Sharon Gilchrist uses in her new “fretboard” method PHN course. You combine an understanding of where the root notes are found in a 1,4 &5 progression and...

    The OP said he was just playing for a few years, so my assumption was that he was looking for some tips on fundamentals, like what theory, scales or patterns help you find the melody; where are the...

    Re: Mandolins outside

    I live in SW Florida, where it’s hot nearly all year and humid most of the year. More often than not, jams are outside so playing in less than ideal conditions is frequently necessary. We are careful...
