Ornaments on the Octave Mandolin
I’ve been sitting here practicing tunes on the octave mando for part of the night. (I play in GDAE)
I’m not sure if it’s just me… but when i do a triplet (especially on an open string) it seems to get lost in the resonance of the instrument.
Is there a way to make triplets clearer on the octave mando? Are they needed? (This is probably an open ended question) And does anyone know of some good recordings, websites, youtube videos etc?
Any help would be appreciated.
