    Re: Mini Tele Conversion to Five-String

    I do want to tune it as a mandola, but with a fifth string tuned to high e. It's going to be tough, I suspect, with a 16.3" scale.

    I'll probably replace the bridge plate to a through-body model,...

    Re: Mini Tele Conversion to Five-String

    Great. I really appreciate that feedback.

    My intention was to tune this up like a mandola with a high e, but I'm worried I won't be able to get there on a 16.3" scale.

    Re: Mini Tele Conversion to Five-String

    That's extremely helpful, thank you. The mini-T comes with an ashtray bridge with barrel saddles, but this would allow conversion to rectangular saddles. You don't have any problems with your action...

    Mini Tele Conversion to Five-String

    I've had this crazy idea rattling around in my head for a while, and I can't shake it, so I might have to just go for it.

    StewMac has their Mini T-style kit in stock at a great price right now....

    Wow! I really appreciate that. Yeah, it's quite different from what he's teaching. I'll try to work through these tabs this week. I usually work by ear, but this gives me a great foundation.

    Help - Monroe's Kentucky Mandolin

    Anybody have a link to a good video lesson for this song? Or have you recorded one?

    Re: Lonesome Moonlight Waltz

    Strings and Julin do a really nice, sort of long, rather simple version of this tune that I used to learn the basics.

    That's a real beauty, Marty. Hate to hear it might be the last of its kind, but I'm glad it sounds like you've got some really interesting projects on deck.

    He's saying Marty is "in Marietta if I recall correctly".

    Barry Kratzer, though, is near Savannah.

    I taught myself this song, on a whim, last week. I'll have to sit down and pick it to be sure, but this tab takes a few odd turns I wouldn't think to take. That's not to say they're wrong,...

    Sam Bush goes way up the neck with his pick. Wouldn't be surprised to see facial wear on the scroll after a lot of that kind of play, resting the base of the thumb there to pivot.
