    Re: Old-time on Dotara (Indian Lute)

    What a really enjoyable posting, Diptanshu. Such a fun combination of dotara with your very country & western choice of song. The instrumental breaks sound great on the dotara too.

    Re: Boomerang Banjo Mandolin

    Looks like a UK-origin instrument, and as Graham says, they are in plentiful supply and very often not in playable condition. If you can remove the eight screws holding the back and top together...

    Re: Shipping expenses from Ireland?

    Check carefully to see if it is coming from The Irish Republic or Northern Ireland. Since Brexit happened over here in the UK the Republic is still in the EU but Northern Ireland, as part of the UK,...

    Re: Me and my clones-"The Clumsy Lover"

    Clever video production, and I love the change from jig to reel that you introduce. Excellent playing on all instruments.
    The first time I heard this tune was as a pipe solo played by Pipe Major...

    Lovely wistful version there, Frank. Beautifully played. Reminds me of the version Ginny Aitchison and I collaborated on over in the SAW group back in March. Here is a link to our version.

    Re: Richard Thompson Mandolin TAB

    I was just looking at the transcription you posted above, Martin, and notice that the last bar for some reason includes the F# and A# quavers which appear before the first bar as an anacrusis. ...
  11. Re: how do you prevent and get rid of hand cramps

    Sherry, I think you might be a Windows user, and if so there will probably be a process that allows you to use iReal Pro outside the Mac environment via an Android emulator. I am a Windows user and...

    Great live performance, all of you. You generate so much fun in this. And I love the guitarist's Scotland shirt. You are never far from a Scotsman wherever you are! ;)
