    Re: Eastman El Rey?

    Yes, and lengthen the scale to 15" and it would be, for me, pointless to try to resist buying one.

  8. The Guitarist ep2 is really about mandolins

    If you know about John Jorgenson, this will not surprise you.

    But this is a really wonderful 15 minute video that includes discussion about Jethro Burns from Sam Bush and Ricky Skaggs.

    Re: Eastman El Rey?

    Hi Doc,
    The El Rey has an electromagnetic pickup in it, so it is meant to be played through a 'guitar' amplifier, rather than directly through a PA or 'acoustic' amplifier. People hereabouts have...

    Re: Eastman El Rey?

    You won't need distortion, a bit of overdrive will create as dirty a sound and be a bit more versatile with 8 strings.

    It's fun.

    But I prefer to use an 8 string in place of a 12-string guitar...
  11. counter-intuitive use of octave pedal

    Hello folks,

    I bought a cheap Mooer octave pedal last summer because I needed something for when my guitarist and I covered Wish You Were Here. The low octave helped flesh things out while he...

    I meant that 12's should work for you, not that you should use phosphor bronze. :)

    Re: Some Questions on New Purchase

    I have a Hathway octave mandolin with a 19" scale. I tune it GDAE, an octave lower than a mando. D'Addario make an octave mandolin set with 12's as the top e. Works for me.

  16. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    My usual 'mandola' is actually an Arrow G5 hollow body electric 5 string mandolin with a 15" scale length. It solves a lot of stretching/fingering issues.

    My 'real' mandola is a Weber Alder #2,...

  18. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    I don't have the mandola tab, no. I do have the guitar tab though. I was thinking about putting it in TEF and then trying to convert it from guitar to mandola.
    I caught the A part by repeated...
  19. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    tmsweeney is right about sharing a lot of sonic space with the guitar.

    I've been playing along to Eric Skye's "Kathryn by the Delaware" on the mandola. I can match the pitch of his guitar part on...
  20. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    Slap a capo on the octave mandolin at the fifth fret and have a go!

    The scale will be a bit shorter than the usual 16" or 17" but the fingering will be the same.

    Re: In praise of solid body mandolins.

    How about:
    6) 100% more control over your tone. No reliance upon sound engineers who may or may not know what a mandolin is supposed to sound like.
    7) Cool chord inversions available if you use a...

  23. Re: Electronic tuner: guide, or unquestionable authority?

    These are both about guitars, but you get the idea.

    Tuning is relative because it has been equalised in western music. (Thank Bach for that.)
