  1. Re: Embarassing Question - Which Mandolin to Bring to Jam?

    The only time anyone has ever mentioned my instrument is when someone noticed it says "The Flatiron" on the headstock. Their comment was along the lines of "I wish I had an instrument that said...

    Re: Do I need a mandola?

    Ya gotta get a mandola...
    The range is almost identical to guitar, but the sound is nothing like it.

  5. Re: Wrapping strings around tuners too many times restringing?

    CES,
    I'm not an engineer of any type or kind, I only know what has worked for me.
    3-4 windings on plain strings and 1 or 2 on wrapped strings has worked for me for going on 40 years.
    When I first...
  6. Re: Wrapping strings around tuners too many times restringing?

    I didn't read that same interview, but I've always followed that stringing advice; guitar(s), banjo(s), & mando(s).
    Depending on the string thickness, about 3 windings around the string post, then...

    Re: Describe your MAS progression

    Well, let's see...
    Bought a no name East German A-style mandolin in West Germany in about 1985 or so. Sorta traded it for a Kentucky KM-180s (there's a story there :grin:) and still have it.

    I've been using the same stand for close to 40 years. I got it when stationed in Germany in the 80s. It's a double hanger with bumpers to keep your instrument from banging against the metal of the...

    Re: Buying a Mandola For Church?

    zgraft, I have used mandola in church and it does tend to get swallowed up by any guitars in the neighborhood. But maybe that's just my playing.
  11. Re: Starting into 3-string closed chords after 4 string open chor

    Everyone here was a beginner at one point or another, some of us have not progressed much beyond where we started. :grin:

  12. Re: Starting into 3-string closed chords after 4 string open chor

    Bill, consider it a starting point. The first page in the 14-page booklet shows the shapes for 1st, 3d, & 5th on the G string, then it shows some examples for each key. Sitting with this booklet...
  13. Re: Starting into 3-string closed chords after 4 string open chor

  15. Re: Flatiron Appreciation Thread / 1994 Flatiron A5 Artist Pics

    I am fortunate enough to have 3 Flatirons; a '92 F5, a Performer A, and a 96 M5-Junior mandola. I would never trade any of them as they're each more mandolin than I could otherwise afford. Let's...

    JohnW63, what others have said I echo. I too came from the guitar world and the mandolin made me a better guitar player as well as a decent mandolin player. I started with a Kentucky KM-180S and...

    Re: Is It Possible to Fake It?

    All of this information is wonderful and I'll have to work on it when I get back home.
    What I think is getting lost in all this is the tune, the melody, the feel.
