    Re: Going from mandolin to mandola, tunes

    You can move up the neck a bit on the mandola to get out of the confusion zone near the nut.

    Re: What's this? 0-3-2-0

    I agree Mark, the problem is that a lot of guitarists think that TAB is text with [Gm] in between.

    But, 'what’s the Chord Tab?' seems quite self-explanatory to a mandolinist.

    Re: What's this? 0-3-2-0

    If someone in a bar shouted: Hey that chord you just played, what are the string numbers?
    And you replied: Aah, the Chord String Numbers are 0230.

  9. Re: TS, TRS, TRRS, anyone know why my doesn’t microphone work?

    Thanks Keith, one of the reasons is that I like to record mandolin outside and sometimes it’s using a wide angle lens, for example as in intro shot. Then move to a close shot for the tune. If I can...

  11. TS, TRS, TRRS, anyone know why my doesn’t microphone work?

    Ok, there are four 6mm sockets for each dial on this Zoom H6. There’s also a 3.5mm socket at the top with the microphones. I need to attach the external microphone so I can use it at the same time as...

    Re: Should I Resist Waverly Tuners?

    Interesting, I’ve always thought that mandolins, for the most part are beautiful instruments. Someone even complimented me on my Rogue-clone the other day.

    Better still, I’m thinking of putting some heavy CGDA strings on my GDAe fiddle and then actually play the thing… medieval, hurdygurdy-style!

    Interval training really helps when trying to play by ear.
