Aha! The missing km-650 video I couldn’t find! @BanjoBen, this is the one I was referring to on the km150 general store thread. Shouldn’t this video go on the store?

I think we didn’t because of the background/presentation.

Ah, ok, that makes sense

What is that first tune Jake plays? Is it a tune or just an exercise?

Wow good question, I just listened and couldn’t tell. I bet @Jake knows

I was just thinking as I was watching: with the window and lamp being in the background and Jake in the foreground, it reminded me of Willy Wonka when the room got smaller.:joy:



I asked Jake and he said he doesn’t know, that it’s some type of exercise, perhaps. It sounds like a tune to me, but I can’t place it.


thanks guys, it sounded kinda nice, just curious.

To me, it sounded like he was playing a scale in thirds, got bored, and merged it with over the waterfall

Cool! I am new to the gold pick membership. I do not own a mandolin but intend on purchasing soon.
In reviewing instruments online I thought I would have to spend twice the price of this one to get something decent. Mandolins are NOT cheap!
Its great to access advise from seasoned professionals. Thanks!
