    Re: Framus

    My first classical guitar was a dreadful Framus. Jim Hall used to endorse their jazz guitars, but I don't think anyone ever saw him actually playing one. So good luck with the Framusó but keep the...

    This has been a great discussion, Cary, thanks for starting it! Lots of good information and advice, plus a chance for a number of members to share their guilty secrets.

    Re: 5ths tuned chord progression source?

    Every folk song, bluegrass tune, show tune, jazz tune, classical symphony, etc. has an underlying chord progression. Is there a particular style of music you're thinking of? In my experience, the...

    Re: A Mandolin at the Opera

    Glad it wasn't an F-5 they used on stage. ;)

    It would be cool if this photo was from your production, rcc. Of course as a pit player you never get a look at what's happening on stage. When I...

    Re: RIP Jerry Lee Lewis

    He was one of the greatest of the greats. And yeah, there's lots of live footage on Youtube from over the years from 1957 to a few months ago. Among other things, you can see him jamming with Fats...

    Thanks, everyone! I missed the pointó should start listening to lyrics, but I've never got into that habit.:redface:

    The scene imagined would probably be happening back in the forties. So Kenny...

    Re: Who is Oscar?

    No sax on that version of In Walked Bud. The Wikipedia article on Monk's album Underground gives Charlie Rouse as the sax player on that album. He was the regular sax player in Monk's quartet...

    Re: Playing a triplet over 2 quarter notes.

    A couple of good examples: the beginning of I Don't Mind and the end of I Want To Hold Your Hand.

    Re: Question about pinky use...

    I'll guess you probably don't play in flat keys very much. A good exercise would be to play a one-octave Bb scale starting at fret one on the A strings and crossing to the E's. Fingering will be: ...

    Re: 1909 Gibson mandolin

    The one-piece top on my A-jr. goes from quite fine grain on the bass side to pretty wide on the treble. But not as wide as Skip's example. :disbelief:

    Narrow bass to wide treble seems...
  16. Re: Paganini Sonata Concertata Allegro Spiritoso

    Excellent job, on both instruments! And it's very impressive that you seem to be playing both parts from memory.

    Nice to hear this piece againó I used to play guitar on all this repertoire. ...

    Re: Heard it through the grapevine

    I'm guessing you want notation for the vocal line, and probably in Marvin Gaye's version, yes? Good tune, but it's too simple to bother writing out— you can get it by ear.

    Try it in D minor...

    The Break (jazz original)

    I put this up on Soundcloud in late June, and I see it's now been played three times. So I'm giving it a little nudge. Quartet number for mandolin, guitar, bass and drums, recorded around 2007. ...

    Yeah, Mick, it would have been easy to buy, but not to play (neck width). ;)
