  1. Re: How do you think of the fretboard - closed patterns or just n

    Nothing wrong with either; thinking both ways would be better than just one.

  2. Sarah Allen of FLOOK interview (no mando content)

    FLOOK, the double flute UK/Irish band, are one of my favorite groups. I really love their stuff!

  3. Re: Where did the tab edit files on Mandozine go?

    Thanks. I used that link you provided to restore the interview to my signature.

    That said, I think it's a good idea to make/save any stuff you think it really good that is on the web. It may be...
  4. Re: Where did the tab edit files on Mandozine go?

    Re: Fiddlers picking with bow direction?

    If you are slurring notes (hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides on mandolin) in the same places you would on fiddle, I see nothing wrong with fiddle/bow direction with a plectrum.
