  1. Re: New to mando...coming from guitar...where would you start?

    Thousands of members here were in your shoes at some point, guitar players drawn to the mandolin. It took me a year or so to sort of begin to find a mandolinny voice for myself, as in the beginning I...
  2. Re: What 7th Chords Go with What Major Keys?

    Keep it simple, just learn the dominant 7 chord of every chord you know by adding the flat 7 note to those chords. Then just learn how to make the major 7 chords by simply adding the 7 note.

    you...

    Re: Going backwards

    Yes indeed, this happens to most, if not all, musicians.

    This can be especially daunting to a beginner - and exacerbated by the beginner's growth in 'hearing' more accurately what they're doing,...

    Re: It's Snowing Down in Texas

    I'm on a job in sunny L.A. at the moment, while my wife is home alone in a home covered with icicles, surrounded by snow, only one water tap working ... thankfully she hasn't lost power. My...

    Re: Blake's March -musical notation

    Hey string along, you posted a link to your video in the YouTube studio edit mode - link won’t work that way. Post a link to the video itself, I’d surely like to hear it!

    Re: Jonathan Kellerman

    Thanks for that tip! I’ve read numerous Kellerman novels, but knew nothing of his musical life.
  8. Re: Thoughts on the Washburn Americana M108SW

    Which one do you have, David? Mine is the M106SWK

    I made a bone nut for it and set the action low when I got it years ago. It has been a serviceable mandolin, used from time to time as a backup...
  9. Re: Thoughts on the Washburn Americana M108SW

    I own an Americana A style and have played it for many years. It is not a good value in a mandolin at retail price. Spending the equivalent on a Kentucky would get a much better mandolin.

    Biggest...

    Re: Mandolin fingerpicking instruction?

    FWIW Justin lowered the tension ever so slightly by tuning down a half step to play the above, not a bad idea if you want to do this.

    Re: Your Wegen Pick

    I use the TF120 (white) and the TF140 (black) more than any other picks. The JT Pix #2 blue polycarbonate (1.2 mm) gets almost as much play, though, when I want a bit brighter tone.
  12. Re: Excellent Musical Documentary Now Playing - It Was The Music

    Great news, I'm a fan of Larry's, but was unaware of this! Larry is an awesome multi-instrumentalist, and sometimes played mandolin behind Dylan on tour. I've been into his fiddle playing and...
  13. Re: Playing Mandolin with the Church Praise Team

    Small phrases between the vocal lines can work very well if played at a tasteful volume to blend with the other accompaniment. During the vocals, you can play a little harmony more softly - sometimes...
  14. Re: Whats this tuning called, any YouTubes?

    Some of the early ragtime & blues string band players called it "high strung mandolin" according to Steve James.

    Re: Northfield Model M vs Collings MT

    Thanks for the intel Lane!
  16. Re: How to use more right wrist and minimal right arm?

    I doubt seriously that locking one's arm in place and using only the wrist is what Mike was after, that would suck as much as locking your wrist and using only your arm. IMO re-read Jim Garber's...

    Northfield Model M vs Collings MT

    Would like to hear from people who have played both. One thing of great importance to me is the feel of the neck. I've owned an MT and the neck is perfect for me. Ive never played a Northfield M so...

    Re: Big Sciota // One Man Jam Session

    Very cool, Hayes! Love the harmony section.

    When I got ready to learn Big Sciota several years ago, I purchased the sheet from btlmusicnotes.com from your predecessor Nick there. Both you guys are...
  19. Re: New player -- question about learning materials

    I think by far the easiest and least expensive is mandolessons.com

    He teaches note for note by ear, but also makes tab/sn available.

    In my own journey, I started with bradleylaird.com and...

    Re: Fiddlers picking with bow direction?

    I’m not a fiddler, Max, but that sounds off to me. There is little to no similarity between bow technique and flat pick technique other than that both are used to excite the strings.

    There is...
