    Re: What's this? 0-3-2-0

    A tablature grid is much like the musical staff, but the horizontal lines represent strings rather than notes. The vertical lines...

    Re: Gong from mandolin to mandola, tunes

    For me the mental transposition of chord shapes from mandolin to mandola (or mandocello) got easier the more I did it. Just look at basic two finger first position chords. A G (0-0-2-3) on mandolin...

  10. Re: TS, TRS, TRRS, anyone know why my doesn’t microphone work?

    If you get the XLR attachment (to replace the XY mic) you can record 6 tracks at a time with an H6. I did that a lot before I got the F8. (Here is an open mic group I did with the H6 - most of those...

    As Keith says, it depends what type of mic it is. If it needs to be powered the way to do this is covered on page 88 of the manual but be careful sending power to a mic that doesn’t need it could...
  16. Re: TS, TRS, TRRS, anyone know why my doesn’t microphone work?

    It depends entirely on the type of microphone. WHAT IS IT?

    Back when I had my original H6 (not the new one) as well as the F8 model, the 1/4" input was strictly for instrument or line level input...
