  3. Re: Help!!:I have aqquired an Unmarked unnamed 7 string banjolele

    But to get back to my comment #4, above, is this instrument a ukulele mandolin or a banjo mandolin? The OP calls him or herself a "newbie" so this is very important information to know.
  4. Re: Help!!:I have aqquired an Unmarked unnamed 7 string banjolele

    Neil Rosenberg told me some years ago that he'd been to Japan to address a bluegrass conference, and said that there was a thriving bluegrass scene. Enter "Bluegrass Japan" in YouTube and you'll find...

    Re: Where’s the easy-does-it method?

    Dix Bruce's First Lessons Mandolin (Mel Bay), with CD's or MP3's, has a gentle approach, with easy chords, to get you playing. (By chance, he just posted some videos on playing today; I haven't...

    Re: Best budget mandolin UK

    Banjo mandolin (banjolins, mandolin banjos, manjos?) are very loud. Even if I were going to an amplified session, I wouldn't hurry to amp mine. At Wembley Stadium, I would. However, a banjo mandolin,...

    Have you considered a tuba rather than a mandolin? ;) Seriously though, you'll have to have fine hearing to pick out the sound of your mandolin with five or more accordions, at least two fiddles,...

    I have nothing against reading music. It's a useful skill. Still, as with reading print, reading music must change one's perception. Furthermore, as with any skill, learning to read music is easy for...
