    Re: Struggling with Eastman V-neck

    Hard to tell , but they do seem quite different. Does the Dow have a wider neck?

    Re: Struggling with Eastman V-neck

    Ah yes. Janice Reavell (who I should think you know) got one from him in November. Amazingly I bumped into her in Celtic Chords in Stonehaven where she had bought it. Nice.

    Are you ok when you play your old mandolin (a Vanden, I think) ?

    Re: Greek mandolin music

    I bought a CD by Michalis Kontaxakis when I went to a course at Labyrinth. I think this video is from the recording session.

  7. Re: Walter Douglas MBE, played by Dagger Gordon

    I would say it was an octave, tuned ADae.
    It was bought from Stefan Sobell as an 8 string cittern, but cittern seems to have become something with 10 strings now. I still refer to it as my cittern...

    There is a lovely flow and bright attractive sound to Finn's Rescue. Really catchy piece of music. Good luck to them.
  11. Re: Apparently you can play a slow air on a fretted instrument ..

    Moving away from tremolo, I want to note that Macdara's performance is not on mandolin but rather the bouzouki, and that involves a different approach. Indeed, his use of chords takes his style...

    Re: Mandolin Orange is now Watchhouse

    And the Beatles might still have been the Quarrymen.

    I have to admit though, I don't much like the name. It sounds too much like Washhouse, conjuring up images of a laundry or worse, a bathroom.
  13. Re: Learning Octave mando as a regular mando player.

    If you're interested in that, tuning the bass up to A works very well, giving you ADae.
    I only ever use that tuning, and I can play in any key. It also lends itself to song accompaniment, especially...

    Re: 2018 Frank Tate tenor guitar!

    I think his instruments sound great. You've probably seen this two mandolin set featuring the 'blue' mandolin he made.

    Re: Pig Jicking?

    Thank you maxr. I must say that is the most comprehensive analysis of my picking I've come across. I'm grateful to you for it.

    I must have a closer look at that 'single Up', which I wasn't really...

    Re: Pig Jicking?

    Indeed. Same here! You can have a look here if you like. Seems mostly to be alternate picking, I think. Works for me.

    Re: Pig Jicking?

    I've often wondered when and where the notion of DUD DUD for jigs started.
    It seems to be fairly widespread, but I can honestly say that I had never heard of it until I read it here on the Cafe, by...

    Thank you for that, Janice.

    I found it quite moving, and I hope when my turn comes that I will be so fondly remembered.

    Re: 10 Questions for Dagger Gordon

    Gosh, the years have gone by. Doesn't seem very long ago. Thanks for bringing it up again.
  25. Re: How has the mandolin changed your guitar playing?

    DADGAD is but one of many tunings, of course.
    I used to do a lot in open D and open G. Both can work very well in Celtic music, albeit with capo shifts sometimes, and I used both on my Highland...
