  1. Re: Fiddle tunes that don't work on mandolin?

    Hi Maxr. I see this video was originally posted by Ian Anderson, an internet friend of mine and whose son Paul is, along with Duncan Chisholm, one of Scotland's top traditional fiddlers.

    For what...
  2. Re: When you stumble upon a tune which stops you in your tracks..

    Great wee tune, Adrian. Nigel has quite a few fine tunes under his belt - I was at a two-day mixed-instrument session heorganised here in Argyll in the middle of August at Cairnbaan. That Ashbury...

    Re: Learning to read Rhythm

    4/4 time, Simon. The first bar, coming before the repeat barlines, has three beats counted as (2-3-4) as it is an anacrusis or pick-up bar, then the tune continues in 4/4 time - unless there are...

    Re: rhythm problems when writing

    I see that the thread you have highlighted dates back twenty years, Werner, and has never been added to since then, as far as I can see. I would say that the responses to Marian's question are...

    Re: Ever heard of a "guitar chair?!"

    Ah, but you all missed the exquisite curved bars on the back of the chair. These have obviously been specially designed to improve the tone in the lower registers, and I imagine new versions will be...

    Re: Mandolin Rain - Video

    A very restful composition and video, Jozef. We have just had our first named storm of the year here in Scotland, Storm Arwen, so your video is a well-timed posting after the deluge.
  7. Re: Second regiment scottish horse John McColl

    Thanks again, Ranald. Cape Breton is certainly still a huge force in the world of traditional fiddling and there seems to be a vey close relationship with Scotttish fiddling.
  8. Re: Second regiment scottish horse John McColl

    Thanks for the clarification, Ranald. The Father John Angus Rankin that is the second tune in the set is very different from the Jerry Holland composition I know. I wonder if Father John was well...
  9. Re: Shove that Pigs Foot a Little Farther into the Fire

    Above all, you were having a lot of fun on this one as well as playing so well!
  10. Re: Happy Thanksgiving! (Turkey in the Straw)

    Fine picking and a great sound from your mandolin, Gunnar.
  11. Re: Second regiment scottish horse John McColl

    A fine set, Ranald, especially the Scottish Horse!

    Re: Desk clamp hanger?

    Ray, I reckon my version is different from yours. The safety bar is part of the moulding of the hanger rather than having a discrete hinge holding it. It just bends out of the way but can be locked...

    Re: Desk clamp hanger?

    My Pub Prop takes my octave regularly over the past several years; the octave hangs from the holder, not touching the floor, while ny guitar does sit on the floor with the nck held by the Pub Prop. ...

    Re: Desk clamp hanger?

    I use a Pub Prop regularly in local sessions and it can accommodate a fiddle or mandolin as well as the guitar. It comes with fittings to hold the fiddle bow too. I have not had a problem with it...
  15. Re: Everything you wanted to know about the Irish bouzouki...

    Nigel, the UK Government never ceases to amaze me with its application (?) of its own rules. Now, perhaps if you were to become a Party Donor... Then not just a visa but possibly a seat in the House...

    Re: Euan Cattanach

    Sad news, Nigel. I remember that television programme where Billy acquired Euan's banjo. Another loss to the world of music.

    Re: Hammer-on practice tips?

    On the mandolin with its small scale length and higher string tension it is always a problem getting a good hammer-on, Sheila. I play a lot of bagpipe tunes on my mandolin and octave and use both...

    Re: Arpeggio's

    Em triad would have E, G and B, lowtone2. With the C included it would be an Em6, I think.

    Fine duet, Shawn. That Single Malt Fylde looks (and sounds) great with the stained top from the old whisky casks.

    Would the armpit fart be the ideal way to learn tunes such as Blowin' in the Wind and Windy and Warm, Sue?
