    Re: Alexandria's Waltz ( Original )

    What a beautiful melody, Frank, and so appropriate for a new grandchild. I can just imagine it being played above her bed on one of those little mobiles to help her to sleep. When she is older she...

    Re: Renaissance songs for Tenor Guitar

    Another fine set which suits the tenor guitar, Ondrej.
  3. Re: Emulating Strathspey bowing on a mandolin

    What a fine performance, Bren. Great to see a band playing live pre-Covid!
  4. Re: Emulating Strathspey bowing on a mandolin

    For what it's worth I suggest you experiment with hammer-on and pull-off techniques on those tunes - works well on pipe tunes too, especially on 2/4 marches! It is not a direct substitute for the...

    Re: Jewish songs for Tenor Guitar

    Lovely tunes, fine playing and a great tone from your tenor, Ondrej.

    Beautiful instrument, Graham. Very tastefully selected parts and woods, and I love those position markers.

    Re: Set of tunes by O’Carolan

    A fine departure from your usual offerings, Toomas, and a lovely sound with that picking technique.
    For those who have not heard Toomas's playing before, he has an excellent YT channel where he...

    What a great ragtime vibe you have there, Frank! Great mix of melody and backing too.

    Re: A medieval citole

    Yet another little gem, Jo. You certainly have a real flair for producing those amazing instruments, and this one sounds great too. Will the customer also play it with the quill-like pick you are...
  11. Re: The Cliffs of Conachair by Charlie Grey and Joseph Peach

    The link works, but I cannot get the other one to open either. Lovely tune and playing by the two lads.

    Re: Surviving Lockdown

    And you also managed to sit on the same chair and have that same accordion positioned just behind. What a well-desciplined set of musicians you have assembled there - are they all Welsh, and if so...

    Thanks, pops1. I was in fact referring to the columns, as Jo has informed us in her reply.

    Re: My latest build: A renaissance cittern

    Another fine piece of creative craftsmanship, Jo. You really have a wonderful skill in recreating those old instruments.
    Are the two thin posts which are on either side of the neck block structural...

    Another fascinating instrument and very unusual melody, Jo. You come up with some very lovely instruments that seem almost unique.

    Re: Fiddlers picking with bow direction?

    A friend of mine who is also a mandolin player went along to the local fiddle workshop ayear or two back as he fancied taking up the fiddle. One of the long-time fiddle players said that my friend...

    Re: Funny How Time Slips Away - Mandolin

    A very enjoyable performance and arrangement, Mark. Willie had such an individual way with his phrasing in his songs, and you capture the flavour well here.
  20. Re: Newbie looking for tunes that feature mandolin

    Look also under the same label that Eric mentions and in the Social Groups submenu you will find loads of material, especially in the Song-A-Week Social Group, but lots of categories under this menu...

    Re: Dubova tenor guitar

    A lovely instrument. The bookmatched walnut back is really lovely and it sounds great too.
  24. Re: Creating a solo video with my own backing track

    The zoom will give you very good quality, Sherry, as will Audacity! With Audacity it depends on the microphone you use to record through. I often use a Tascam DR-05 (similar to the Zoom family) and...
  25. Re: Creating a solo video with my own backing track

    Sherry, for what it's worth, here is a simple technique I use. You will see the results on many of my postings over in the SAW group or on my YT channel (link in signature).
