    Re: Hi Everyone

    Hi Eric, I'm sure you'll find this place informative and helpful on your mandolin journey - and friendly, too. Don't forget to have a look at the social groups - there's one for newbies, one for...

    Re: Looking for instruction

    Sorry, I didn't see this when you first posted it. The combination of songwriting, rhythm, music theory, mandolin and Irish music in a teacher is probably not very common. You may have to separate...

    Re: Video: The Princess

    Grey Owl is such a great tune! But all your videos are great. Everyone should have a family band like that (I can't convince my wife to play anything, and my son is too young).

    I second the...

    Re: Ever just love the sound of your mandolin?

    Yes, but the opposite is more common. I know my mandolin can sound great, and usually I feel that I'm not doing it justice!
  8. Re: It's the anniversary of Mandolin Mondays #1

    I love the series, too. My Mandolin Mondays T-Shirt and hoodie should be on their way by now.

    Re: Scottish Reels

    I liked both recordings very much, and I recognised the David Surette interpretation. A good person to learn from!

    Re: Taran Springwell

    It's a great sound from the mandolin, absolutely. You're lucky to have each other - a great instrument for you, a great player for it!

    Re: Mandolin Sleigh Ride

    I have loathed this song for many years since working in a shop as a student Christmas job, where a tacky over-paced version of it was playing on loudspeakers several times every day. This was the...

    Re: Specific Pick Direction Question

    This is how I learnt it, too. If your piece is in 4/4 time and full of 16ths, the DUDU picking pattern is needed to play those. Notes of longer durations, consequently, turn into downstrokes as long...
  18. Re: MP3 of the Day - Scottish jigs by Kevin Macleod from the albu

    This is the MP3 that introduced me to Kevin Macleod's music. His mandolin playing on this set sounds like the purest of waterfalls. I've bought several of Kevin's recordings since, and he's one of a...
  19. Re: mandolin orange-Unknown Legend (Neil Young cover)....WOW

    They just sound so good. And looking at them play, you can see that they are really living and breathing the song in that moment.

    Nice to meet you. Coincidentally, we were in Maidstone today. Boughton Monchelsea is near there.

    That's not me in the video. It's the first and only recording I could find of this tune, and I...
