Transcript of Mandolin
2.Bill Monroe left behind a legacy that’s more vital and thriving than ever and a diaspora of former players and acolytes who continue to spread his music today. Bluegrass, developed from roots deep in the soil of his native Kentucky, has spread around the world. It’s evolved with each generation that’s passed since that mythic “birth of bluegrass” concert in December 1945 at The Ryman Auditorium that featured the debut of pioneering banjo player Earl Scruggs and guitarist Lester Flatt.
4.It's an instrument tuning based on a standard note so that everyone plays in pitch. The standard is A - 440Hz or C - 523.3Hz. However, a tuning fork, well tuned piano or electronic tuner will give you concert pitch notes or tuning. If you're playing with a non-tunable instrument (like a concertina or melodeon that's not for some reason in concert pitch) you'll have to tune to it if you want to play together. If everyone tuned to concert, you'd be able to tune to an electronic tuner and join right in bang on pitch, but if that piano is a semitone south, everybody (who can) will have to tune down to it.
5.The Mandolin is a small fretted instrument with four pairs of metal strings tuned like the violin to E A D G. The instrument is played by plucking each pair of strings together using a plectrum, sometimes in rapid succession to produce a tremolo effect, which is a characteristic associated with the mandolin. The mandolin can be played as a solo instrument, but is normally played with accompaniment. Mandolin 4. A famous mandolin player would be Bill Monroe. He is to be known as "the father of bluegrass". he can play nearly every bluegrass instrument. Bubble of Toby That's all Folks!
