  4. Re: Changing Left-Hand positions on the mandolin

    I thought I'd kill 2 birds with one stone by redoing a Sierra Hull fingering of a classical piece
    and showing different thumb positions while playing arpeggios and scalar lines that
    require...
  5. Re: Sierra Hull's Turkey In The Straw Theme and others...

    I finally got me a mandolin and I will be redoing all my mandolin transcriptions

  6. Re: Changing Left-Hand positions on the mandolin

    Thanks Mark! Although I'm showing the neck fully resting between the thumb and index finger, the fulcrum is actually at the mount of Jupiter

    Sorry! The 1st and 3rd chord(Bm11 & Em11) should have bottom 2 notes fretted on the 9th fret...not the 8th fret!

  13. Re: Comping Howard & Jethro's Blues transcription

    Thanks for the correction John! I sometimes use references that aren't as specific and generally describe a sound...in this case, the word chunking sounds very appropriate. Thanks! Great rhythm...

  16. Re: Sierra Hull's Turkey In The Straw Theme and others...

    Hi Mandokismet. This solo seems pretty straight other than some syncopation.
    If you're having difficulties following the line while listening, use a free tool
    you can download from the internet...
  17. Re: Comping Howard & Jethro's Blues transcription

    Thanks John! It didn't take too long...maybe an hour for each of the Sierra Hull demos. I found them to be instructional jewels for my mandolin student. The Aaron Weinstein solos took longer.
