The way you added “bluegrass G” chords to the dey of A helped somewhat, but there is still an issue, which is the mandolin chop still plays the major 3rd which really clashes in some tunes (I’m learning Hell and Scissors). I partly solved that by bringing the mandolin all the way down in the mix, but then I don’t have the mandolin chop, and I have to remember to remix when I’m done for the rest of my tunes.
It’s also disconcerting to hear the chords sound in major when I’m constructing a tune that will eventually use 3rd-less A’s.
I still wish that it was treated like another chord choice that could be made (maj, min., no 3rd, etc). I realize you actually record the parts so it’s not as easy as pushing a button for you. There’s a great mandolin A modal chord with just the 2 low strings fretted and 2 high strings open, like a fiddle tuned in cross A. All the tunes I’m concerned with for now are in A modal.
Just some input. Great job on everything you’re doing.
