  1. Re: Learning to find the notes on the mandolin neck

    I have a suggestion.

    Put your tuner on and watch it while you pick the notes of the song.
    It will tell you the notes in real time. --> D G B G B A G E D
    From that you will learn the names and...

    Re: which DI box for myers pickup

    Hello Isaac,

    Doesn't Amazon have a good return policy?
    It doesn't work for you? My suggestion is you return it for a refund.
    After that ignore the Amazon reviews. Come back and ask for advice...

    Re: Tenor Guitar Gallery & Sightings

    The first time I have seen the video. It was recorded 56 years ago,
    and is still good. I think we could say that song has passed the test
    of time.

    Re: Recording King ROST-7-TS - part 1

    I noticed a question about string spacing. I don't have a basis
    for comparison, but I measured this tenor guitar in case someone
    looks here.

  7. Re: Another pick story, making steel strings sound kinda like nyl

    If you could find a pick that makes nylon strings sound like steel strings
    I think that would find a market.

    You are entitled to your opinion.

    All right, I watched to see what is going on.
    It appears no mandolins were played in recording that song.

  10. Re: National Polychrome Neck removal question.

    Hello SteveL,

    Thank you for the photos. I see you removed the sheet metal screws.

    I think those round pads are glued to the body. Did you pull the nails
    that hold that stack in place? I...

    Hello SteveL,

    Do you think you might share some photos with us?

    I have no expertise in this, but is this model similar to the
    National Triolian model?

    Do I interpret correctly that you...

    Re: Scale length consistency

    I don't have the experience with your instruments, but the Recording King has
    the same nut width as my mandolin. The guitar neck is slightly narrower than
    the mandolin neck. It doesn't look like...

    Re: Scale length consistency

    I am still a beginner. So, you can weight my opinions with that.
    I wanted to try mandola tunes, hence the inexpensive tenor for me.
    I bought the Recording King because, the mid-century vintage...

    I don't know about the cause of the issue. However, if you later decide
    to fill in the slot to make it shallower (as someone suggested in a different

    Thank you for the suggestions.

    I looked like the slot was maybe too deep on G. The top of the string
    was below the level of nut. I tried putting paper in the slot. Thin paper
    seemed too...

    Re: Grace felix vs. Red eye

    In my opinion let the mixer do the mixing.

    I guess you mean blending mic input with a pick up.
    You want to exercise some caution doing that. There
    are typically time of arrival differences...

    I think the distance from the speakers to your ear matters more
