    Re: Just have to brag!

    Not trying to "start" anything. My thought on reading this thread was that it was an odd use of the word "brag" and expressed that thought. Unfortunately, there are people such as yourself who have...

    Re: Wd-40

    What I heard him say is that he uses it to deal with sticky strings from humidity changes, not to prolong string life. He did mention he used to put a new set on before every show, so I don't think...

    Re: [Loar Update] I'm a proper idiot.

    I have to confess to taking a bit of guilty pleasure seeing this brand bashed so often. I have always hated the name. There's a place for all levels of instruments in the market. The availability of...

  11. Re: Who plays an A style in bluegrass or even old time music?

    I wonder why you felt it necessary to include that last sentence. I read a certain amount of comments/complaints on these boards about people looking down, especially in bluegrass, on those who play...
  12. Re: pleasant surprise (offshoot of the Monteleone mandolins threa

    "Although I'm not surprised by the fact that the " cheaper " instruments in this comment sound equally as good and are as playable ."

    Really? If that were the case, the market for those...

    You're missing his point. You said:

  14. Re: Is it just me or is a Banjo an obnoxious sounding

    You're simply being tiresome. That anyone who posts to a thread has no right to criticize or even add a mild rebuke has been said many times before. It's ridiculous perspective, illogical in the...

    Re: melody / hot licks

    Totally disagree. The speed isn't anything beyond what the Monroe Bros. were doing 75 years earlier. I might take issue with the weird improv section but not the tempo.
  17. Re: VIDEO: The Andy Statman Trio - The Arkansas Traveler

    It's a shame more people can't think like that. I'm always amazed by the absolute rigidity some folks exhibit around here. A Statman video always elicits that type of reaction. Some people can't...
