    Re: Whiskey for breakfast

    I did a little detective work. He's got 8 videos on YouTube, 6 playing regular guitar, and 2 with this borrowed and capoed TG. Nothing about him playing mando. So I'd guess that he's playing in...

    Re: Richard Durrant Tenor Course?

    I decided to check out the course myself, using his free 7-day trial version.

    Bottom Line: I can't recommend it to anyone reading this. It's clearly designed for someone who has never played an...

    Richard Durrant Tenor Course?

    Has anyone taken his 24-lesson online course for CGDA tenors? I'm not aware of any other online TG instruction program.

    App for naming chords?

    Often I find myself strumming a particular arrangement of my fingers and wonder, "What chord is that?". I can sometimes figure it out, sometimes not. Is there an app where I can input a fret...

    Re: Whiskey for breakfast

    I love the playing. What's the instrument? Is he in some open tuning? Since he's solo and not singing, why the capo--Maybe to lessen the stretches needed?

    Re: To be or not to be (a bluegrass player)

    No. I'd describe what I play as "Americana", which includes bluegrass, classic country, and singer-songwriter, as well as blues. The relative distribution of these various genres depends on the...
  12. Re: Anyone else have no players near them?

    There's general agreement among JamKazam users that Wi-Fi isn't fast enough. Hard-wired connection is required. I've jammed successfully with folks in Europe.

    I jam every day with JamKazam. With folks all over the country, as well as Canada and even Europe. Various genres--bluegrass,...

    Re: Octave Mandolin advice

    I had a Pono, ended up selling it. Just didn't feel right. Now I play baritone ukes tuned GDAE. (One has all-metal strings.) GDAE tenor guitars are another option.

  16. Are old strings hard to keep in tune? Why?

    I've read many places that if your strings are old and hard to keep in tune, it's time to replace them. What's your experience? I can understand how wear on strings can degrade the tone, but why...

    Re: 7th fret: 3rd or 4th fingers?

    Or vice-versa. Trying to learn piano after years of playing mando and fiddle, the finger numbers always trip me up. And the LH and RH numberings are mirror images, rather than parallel, further...

    7th fret: 3rd or 4th fingers?

    I've got pretty short 4th fingers. When I use my 4th finger on the the 7th fret on the D or G strings, it's uncomfortable and even sometimes painful. I recently saw someone instead use his 3rd...

    It's interesting that Andrew plays an oval-hole A-style, rather than his usual Gibson F-style. Maybe he wanted a more mellow, laid-back sound?

    Re: Why Mandolin?

    Like a number of others, I played fiddle first. Started around age 10; played in my high school orchestra.

    I have a CGDA tenor uke. I just use the same fingerings as a mando. Never noticed anything special about my left hand; I guess it's basically the same form as with mando.

    I also have a couple of...

    I too am baffled why my Collins MT tailpiece is so poorly designed. It's the worst I've ever encountered. Makes changing strings twice as difficult. It has smooth pegs instead of the usual hooks,...

    I usually practice each of my instruments--mando, fiddle, tenor guitar, piano--every day. I fear getting rusty if I...
