    Re: "Noodling" at Sessions

    Is it possible to print out a colour graph of the sound levels over time?

    It would be super-useful if it comes with a 6mm. jack, cable and the mandolin is acoustic/electric.

    Re: "Noodling" at Sessions

    To me ‘noodling’ is being a bit half-hearted while playing.
    It’s when you’ve smoked too much weed, drank a lot of alcohol, are mentally exhausted from work… or you just don’t like the tune that...

    Re: "Noodling" at Sessions

    After learning a certain number of tunes, especially if learned by ear, people may find that they can go out to a session and ‘know’ every tune that they listen to once through.

    I think we forget how much we have achieved.
    If you can play ten tunes, one after the other without reading and more importantly, without noodling then… well, that’s an incredible achievement....

    Great thing about a repetitive, foot-tapping OldTime jam is that you can dance, let your body do the thinking.

    In fact there’s a lot of Tom Petty music that could do with bit more mandolin.

  21. Re: Whats your String Height preference (G Strings)

    4/64, about 1.7 mm or a tiny bit larger than a 5 euro cent coin for the G string on my octave mandolin.
