    Re: Picking Fiddle Tunes?

    Probably not, since most people play more fiddle tunes on mandolin than anything else.

    Re: Dealing with pokey string ends?

    I was almost a diabetic at one point, so I like to check my glucose occasionally and also have a machine and a strip handy for string changes. Why waste a poke?

    Re: Dealing with pokey string ends?

    Mandolin string changing equipment checklist:

    1) New strings
    2) cleaning cloth
    3) needle nose pliers
    4) diagonal pliers
    5) polysporin
    6) band aids
    7) current tetanus shot

    Re: Circle of 5ths

    We call the B section of Rhythm Changes a circle of 4ths progression, because that's how we memorized the circle. In Bb, it's 2 bars of D7, 2 bars of G7, 2 bars of C7, 2 bars of F7, and finally...

    David Benedict's Mandolin Monday tune today is in Bb, if you missed it.

    I practice scales, arpeggios, and other patterns around the cycle of fourths more often than any other sequence.

    Re: Mandolin solo gigs with backing tracks?

    Lately, someone here took that to it's ultimate, and played fiddle along to not only backing tracks, but fronting tracks as well.
