    In G.

    Works well with CGDA tuning.
  2. Re: Microphone recommends for home studio recording?

    Agreed.
    I'm using a FetHead in place of the CloudLifter and works beautifully at $85.
    Also an SM57 clone sounds pretty great also.

    Re: That famous cello prelude, deconstructed

    I've played the Prelude:

    on violin as a kid
    on guitar as a teenager
    on cello as an adult
    on mandolin as an older adult
    on mandola as a much older adult
    and now on tenor guitar.

    It sounds...

    Re: Now that the turkey is gone…

    I usually busk at this time of year. Lots of good experiences to be had there.

    But Covid has put a hold on that.

    Still, I'm working on "O Holy Night" and "Winter Wonderland".

    Re: Octave Mandolin (GDAE) vs Mandola (CGDA)

    Have you considered a tenor (CGDA) guitar?

    Really stands out and versatile.

    My new love BTW.

    Re: Pickup for my Rogue

    I have a mandola with a flat top. It works well on that one.

    I have another with a carved top that is fairly flat where the fingerboard meets the body.
    A little padding on one side works fine.

    Audacity gets a bum rap from a lot of people but it is so easy to use
    with a ton of plug-ins available.

    Here's one I cobbled together from a few sources.

    It's for mandola but you might get something from it.
  11. Re: The merciless camera (recording ourselves as a reality check)

    A violin teacher of mine (over 40 years ago) required me to routinely record myself with a cassette recorder.

    Man, was that ever painful to listen to! But very instructive.

    I don't like Bruce Springsteen but I've learned to not mention that in my circle of friends.

    But this is a wonderful place of discussion. I like A's also.

    At the moment I'm using classical guitar strings on my 4 strings. The selection is mind boggling.

    More punch? Hmmm that sounds good.

    Well you might know something I don't, but the shielding should be copper or that special paint they sell.

    Sounds like 60 cycle hum.

    There are plenty of YouTube videos about this.

    It's usually shielding or grounding.
