    Re: The Joy of an OM

    The Eastman I had before this Weber was 21”. The Weber is 20”. I’m finding the Weber surprisingly easier to play. And the G string isn’t floppy at all.

    Re: The Joy of an OM

    Sorry, I missed your question. I’m not sure what I do regarding fingers/frets. Really. I play tunes as much the same way I play my mandolins (which I guess is two frets per finger?) as possible, then...

    I can’t think of that many great things to say about turning 73, can you Peter? Having a little more disposable income is nice (no point in saving anymore). Finding ways to keep doing the things I...

    Re: The Joy of an OM

    The Eastman has a 21” scale, which was a bit long for me. The real juice came for me when I started to capo anywhere from the second to the fifth fret. I play alone, especially in these times, so the...

    Re: The Joy of an OM

    I had some reservations about the tone of almost any OM myself. They are admittedly sort of nasal sounding, the Eastman no more or less than others. Still, listen to a few YouTube videos, e.g.,...

    The Joy of an OM

    I’d like to share an experience that might inform someone else on their quest towards whatever musical goals they pursue.

    I’ve played mandolin for a long time, have owned—and sold—numerous fine...

    Re: Scottish Reels

    Very nice, John! I especially like Robertson’s Reel. For some reason the volume is much lower for me on the second tune.

  14. Re: Octave in tune but lower frets are not?

    Wait...first fret G string would G#. Second fret A, third fret Bb.
  15. Re: Octave in tune but lower frets are not?

    Sounds like your nut might be too high. Too much tension when you fret causes notes to go sharp?

    Re: Beginner info

    I didnt mean to sound snarky asking you what you are hoping to “get”. It seemed like a good question to get you thinking about specific things you want improve upon. But I’m guessing you might have...

    Audio on Sessions.org!

    Sessions.Org is a great site for every variation of just about any Celtic, or related tune. I visit there often. You can get standard notation or abc. format. BUT, I just discovered that they have...

    It took me over a year to figure this out! This is why I wrote the post! I was ready to sell this great mandolin because something didn’t feel right!. It wasn’t the sound (which is great), I lowered...

    Re: Setup, Setup, Setup!

    Yes. The MT comes with either a 1 1/8” nut or 1 3/16”. I ordered the latter, same as the MTO.

    Setup, Setup, Setup!

    Early last year I acquired two mandolins, a Collings MT, brand new from TME, and a lightly used black faced MTO from a Cafe member. Both have 1 3/16” nuts. They are dimensionally identical, but...
