    Re: Mandolin player crossing over to guitar

    Like most mando players, I came to the instrument with some experience as a guitar picker. I only play the mando now. But would love to play the guitar too, there's even one still in the house . . ....

    Hey Jon - I'm no expert, but in my years of development this is without a doubt true. And I would add to that, that the wrist also should be loosened up. Another little self discovery for me . . ....

    Re: 1st fret playability on your mando?

    Using Rob Meldrum's set-up manual - he calls for an ideal E and A string height of .011 at the first fret. Of course, the rest of the setup is just as vital, but you shouldn't need to press any...

    Re: Strings Catching on Higher Fret

    My two cents. Explore and get to know your instrument. The mandolin responds in remarkable ways sometimes to the smallest, yet appropriate tweaks. A great place to start is emailing for a copy of...

    Philphool, you're right it would most likely have been quite entertaining, but I would have been the one not entertained. So, I've decided to remove the TP with the next string change. I know for...

    Thanks, I understand. I'm thinking that having the bronze exposed, then darkening, won't be a bad thing at all. It's going to be a simple thin script similar to the traditional "The Gibson". I think...

    Fantastic Hayes. Tiny Moore's music is so great, and you play it to perfection. I was totally unaware of Tiny Moore Tuesdays, but I'm hooked now. Please keep 'em coming and thanks so much.
