    Re: Curt Mangan Monels

    I just tried Curt Mangan Monels on my Gibson Fern - fine sound and playability!
  2. Re: Some great resources for Irish trad players...

    Jim, thanks especially for mentioning Séamus Connelly's Collection! That happens to include 2 tunes I wrote and 3 by my son Eric. Just search on "Reiner" to see them. I'm honored that Liz Carroll...

    Fine playing, but please credit the composer of Tommy's Tarbukas, Scottish fiddler Alasdair Frasier.

    Thanks,

  6. Re: Bill Monroe Solo Transcriptions 1936-1996

    I had a similar question, and Andy sent me a sample transcription of Wheel Hoss, in music and tab.

    It was quite well done, from a live recording, and captured several Monroe nuances such as double...

    Re: 1906 Gibson F-4 "tree of life" mandolin

    Torch & Wire headstock, Tree of Life fingerboard F4's are very rare. They seem to mostly date from 1906, and can be not only beautiful but also very playable (mine is). Probably no one buys a T&W/ToL...
  8. Re: Campanella, Red Diamond, Northfield, Collings experience

    I live only 5 minutes from the The Music Emporium and -- as an inevitable result -- have bought many instruments there :-) . They have an excellent staff.
  9. Re: All of My 2020 Festivals Have Been Cancelled

    I think we're going to be mostly online for a while, especially those of us in the high risk category. I do have high hopes for 2021, though.

    Re: Fiddle Tune (and more)

    John Lamancusa (a friend of mine for many years) consistently says "by" to credit composers. For example, Sadie at the Back Door (by Jere Canote). The other names are the sources/versions. His...

    Re: Dreaming of a Great A5 under $6000

    Well, we all like the mandolins we own :-).

    I know you have a few Kimbles, and I'm a giant fan of those as well, having owned an A5 and a two-pointer in the past.

    Re: Dreaming of a Great A5 under $6000

    Could also consider Givens A6 - about in the right price range.

    Good luck,

    Re: Playing remotely with friends

    Thanks! Video would be nice, and I'll play around more with the settings. but I'd rather be able to add to the physical distance and the number of jammers participating.

    For sustain, fiddle helps...

    Re: Playing remotely with friends

    Hi MikeyG,

    No separate audio interface, just the USB mic into a USB-to-USB-C adapter into a Thunderbolt (USB-C) port. OS is macOS 10.15.4.

    I'll try the video again next time...

    Re: The virus, the economy, mandolins and you

    My gigs for the next few months are cancelled. I am spending more time playing tunes on fiddle and mandolin with my wife, who plays clawhammer banjo and bodhrán. Playing music takes us to a good...

    Re: 3 Point F-4 Torch and Wire

    Those 3-pointers are beautiful! I'm sorry the auction didn't work out for the OP - maybe another one will come along.

    Here's a 1906 that I really enjoy playing (frets and inlaid pick guard are...

    Re: Radial Tonebone PZ-Pre Acoustic Preamp

    I can't answer for both instruments since I don't amplify my mando, but I love this Radial Tonebone on my acoustic electric. 5-string fiddle. Wireless to the Tonebone to the amp/mixer.

  21. Re: Anybody happen to have tabs for Temtation Rag?

    JL277z, I'm in awe of your analysis! That's probably the reason I'm hearing an A in the second measure.

    And the B is just a passing tone (like the D# in the first measure), not requiring any...

  23. Re: Anybody happen to have tabs for Temtation Rag?

    Awesome work!

    One oddity - maybe it's just my hearing - is that the second melody note in measure 2 is written as a B in notation and tab, but the midi player plays it as an A. Similar issue...
