    Re: Odd old Puglisi harp mandolin

    It was very similar if not exactly like that one. I think the overall body shape was a bit unusual for me as a player, though.

    If I recall it had a decent bass response, maybe due to the larger...

    Re: Earplugs for loud session?

    I have been using hearing protection for decades, whenever any band gets too loud for my taste - and often am the only musician doing so.

    Re: Identify a Tater Bug Mandolin

    It appears to me that someone cut down a bridge for an archtop mandolin. I could be wrong.

    On my Samsung large tablet, I use Music Sheets Pro for sheet music.

    Re: Pick tradition

    My assumption is that the older picks were designed to be used with older mandolins - like bowlbacks - and for musical styles from the 1800's and early 1900's. (and I still play that way)

    Re: Slide tenor tuning

    If you do want to play slide on a tenor guitar, you could use D F# A D as it relates to common 6 string guitar slide tunings of open D (and E, same pattern.)

    And you could retune to "Chicago"...

    Re: Asturian, Gallician ABC site/collection?

    There is an option for viewing the tunes as "round notation (non-mensural)" from the pull down menu.

    Speaking for myself, yes, I can read the square note notation, it's much like chant, and I...

    Yup...but that's for the Greek instrument, not the Irish version.

    BTW, I only play the Greek version.

    Very sweet.

    When I play that tune for English Country dancers, they dance to the first section much faster...then slow down for the second section. It's nice to hear other versions.

    Bowed string instruments have had soundposts for hundreds of years.

    Plucked stringed instruments have not.

    Re: Double Sharps in Notation
