The 3 T's...

Taste, Tone and Technique.

I know it's a old mandolin of some sort, but sounds pretty good to me.

Well John R. is one of my fav's, but Joe Craven needs a little press as well.

Yeah, but it's kind of old.

I'll get pilloried for this I'm sure, but here's a pretty good pair:


Jeff Austin playing his new Collings MF-5, alongside another pretty passable picker slumming on fiddle.

John Moore in concert in 2004 @ Kaufman's Acoustic Kamp. Amazing.

John was playing his new Fern (I think). [Previously on this board I think I mentioned it was a MM, but was corrected.]

It was beautiful and sounded great.

He had a neat story about how he got it. He was told he could pick it up at Telluride. Well, it was so busy when he got there (and I don't think he was playing), that he called (somebody - I forget who), and they rode up the ski lift and brought it to him where he was waiting. Maybe someone else here has heard that story and could relay more details I don't know.

Here's one of my favorites...North Carolina's own Tony Williamson, one of the most talented guys around (with one heck of a mandolin collection!)

I can't remember this guy's name but he favored electric mandolin.

That would be Wyatt Gumby. I heard that he taught Bill how to do split string back in the forties. Then when asked Bill said, "I've been doing split string since before Gumby was born". So nobody really knows where the technique evolved from.

Alan, and I like him 'cause of his name http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif

Ostroushko has always been one of my favorites. #Taken on a hot night at a local festival last summer, I ran into him while in line for brats and kraut.

Iain Macleod's work with Shooglenifty inspired me to pick up the mandolin. I really love his rhythmic style of playing, and his inventive approach to arranging and writing tunes. (He is playing his trusty old Sobell 10-string in the pic.)

pure genius from arrangment to emotions.....perfect
