    Re: Bass Line

    Yes, Ondrej, I just realized that as I was eating breakfast this morning. I guess I’ll just have to stick to baritone with your book.

    I have two or three of your books. They’re pretty good. ...

    Bass Line

    I have some Baritone Ukulele (DGBE) music which Iím using for my tenor guitar. In it, some of the pieces have the melody (TAB) on the first 2 or3 lines which I understand and am able to play, but...

    Re: My Blueridge Woes - Part III

    Well, Tom, I finally got around to trying your suggestion. I got an F once and an F# once, but i’m not sure I did it correctly.

    However, I’ve been checking my other instruments and most also...

    Re: My Blueridge Woes - Part III

    Yeah, Harley, my experience with sympathetic resonance with GDAE was pretty much the same as yours. When I changed strings again, CGDA was also annoying. That’s why I thought it was the fifths...

    Re: My Blueridge Woes - Part III

    Well, my Blueridge 60T is pretty much okay now. I got to thinkin’ that maybe it was the fifths tunin’ that caused my woes. When I first got it, it was tuned to CGDA, which I don’t care for, so I...

    Re: Kentucky Brand Mandolins-opinion

    I’ve got a KM-272, and I really like it a lot. It’s an A model. I don’t care for F models, although I’d kinda like to find an F model octave mando.

    I’m an old-newby mandolinist, but it sounds...

    Re: Seagull S8 Owners Thread

    Well, I got my Seagull Friday and I really like its looks. It was playable outa the box, but perhaps the action is a little high. I like its sound, but I’ve just noodled with it by ear so far,...

    Re: My Blueridge Woes - Part III

    Yeah, Fox, I wanted it in GDAE because I often play in that tuning, but perhaps I jumped the gun when I changed it. I did put some pencil lead scrappings in in G’s nut slot though.

    Maybe I’ll...

    Re: My Blueridge Woes - Part III

    No, Fox, I don’t think it’s a high fret. Funny, I never heard it at all when the guitar was new. I dunno what the original strings were.

    And, Ray, it seems to sound when I fret the fourth or...

    My Blueridge Woes - Part III

    Well, now that Iíve got my Blueridge BR60T restrung again and in tune, I find that I am faced with still another battle. Iíve learned now about sympathetic vibration or resonance.

    I think that...

    Re: My Blueridge Woes - Part II

    Well, I played it for forty minutes, and it sorta sounded okay. There was some overtone problems with the C string, but it stayed in tune and didn’t explode in my hands. I used a lot of different...

    Fox, the string would not stay seated in the bridge hole no matter how I bent it, stuck it in, twisted it, swore or said a little prayer to the string/pin gods.

    Well, since I live in an apartment and most of the comments mentioned the word “loud”, I guess I won’t be getting one. I like it’s looks and the idea of it, but I make enough noise as it is.

  23. Re: just starting out - what are my string options?

    Well, yesterday, I changed the strings on my Blueridge BR 70BR tenor guitar, and played it some this morning. I like it lots better than CGDA or DGBE. It sounds more to me Like a “real” guitar. ...

    If one tunes to GDAE I think he can also capo up 4 to CGDA. Isn’t that correct?
