    The chart above is about a year old, but you'll note the very highest paying services only offer about a penny a play. The $.35/play figure suggested in a post above was off by two decimal...

    Re: more accurate clip on tuner than Snark?

    I've used a bunch and settled on the TC Electronic Polytune a few years ago. Works great.

    The tuning fork approach is fine if you have trained your ear properly and you play in places quiet...

    Re: recommend me an acoustic bass

    I have an Epiphone El Capitan acoustic bass guitar that was cheap and does the job. With an amp, it sounds reasonably fat, and it can stand on its own acoustically in a quiet session with a couple...

  13. Re: i think this would be such a cool tune to play on mandolin

    The late Al Berard, a Cajun multi-instrumentalist and all-around good guy, played a lot of traditional Louisiana music on mandolin. Never heard him do any Creole or Zydeco music per se, but it...
