  1. My Love is in America (Irish fiddle tune)

    Mandolin and guitars. The A part can't decide if the C is sharp or not, but the B part knows.

    This tune was in print in the late 1800s. I suppose the title, at least, goes back to the great...

    I would think an amorous goddess would bring pleasure, though perhaps some are scary? ;) Anyway, good job!

  3. Re: Trying to ID an UNMARKED "A" Style Mando - 3" thick?

    I had a mandolin that looked rather like that which I bought in a shoe store in Costa Rica about 30 years ago. I can't make a direct comparison, as the neck twisted and I passed it on to someone...

    Re: Microphones for home recording

    I like hollering into a 57 for a vocal. I've got a mike that's supposed to bring out all the subtle nuances in your singing, but that's actually not that good an idea for some people. :)) I also...

    Re: Let's hear your BEST musical joke?

    I suggest we consider all of the posts about the trombosawjobagcorditrithere band to be one massive metajoke (it was pretty amusing).

    Now for some less complicated material.

    I've used these for years. The plastic covering on the headpiece shreds after a while, though. Comes with a 1/4" adaptor.

    Re: Best Resources for Chord Sheets?

    Here's a couple of possibilities that give lyrics and chords (not necessarily laid out in musical measure form, though, just show which chords go with which words).

    Used to see ads like that in the NYC papers all the time. Being as I was 10 years old and lived 75 miles away, I didn't get to many shows. :(

    Old Grimes

    An autumnal-sounding fiddle tune, mellow as a punkin filled with apple butter. Mandolin and guitar.

    I'm working on a fiddle tune where the B part is in a higher register. A high b (1st string, 7th fret) is a key melody note. I often get my little finger in the wrong place playing out of 1st...
  22. Re: Mandolin playing mindset vs guitar playing mindset

    Oh, I didn't mean to say that I play only melody on one and only chords on the other, just that if I sit down with an instrument and play without thinking much, this is what comes out.

    Re: The pulse of a tune

    I like to play melodies with swing, as in a hornpipe, which I find hard to do at a faster tempo. But I think I usually hit beat 1 too hard (just trying to make the metronome proud of me, I guess).
