  2. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    An interesting theoretical question, but you may be phrasing it from a slightly outdated view of the show. While in the beginning it certainly carried over much of its predecessor's basic form, as of...
  3. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    Just last month the term de jour was 'pretentious', and now it's 'smug'. At least y'all are consistent with the synonyms.

    Re: Vulfpeck - Thile appearance

    Pretentious? Hmmm...If so, then he truly is a damned fool for thinking he's impressing anyone. It's like a much worse version of the unconscious chicken jig that's part of his live performances. I...

  6. Re: The Mighty Cozart! New 8 string electric

    Neck is pretty chunky but it doesn't really bother me and I usually prefer a thinner one. My thumb mostly rides the top of the neck so the shape is less of a factor than navigating the wide, flat...

  9. Re: If you have Scroll Envy and $299.00 this has your name on it

    Normal price at Folkmusician.com too, plus it'll come with a setup.

    Having previously owned an upper-mid-range The Loar, when the 310F came out I made a trip to my local GC just to see if I could...
  10. Re: The Traveling Pick Sampler - Anyone Interested?

    Howdy all!

    As usual I'm behind in posting updates to this thread, but I do have some excellent news. Both samplers are in circulation with new recipients, and recent reports of missing picks were...
  11. Re: PayPal fraud in prograess (have you smelled this one before)?

    LOTS of people have (luckily I have not, though I'm familiar with it).

    Google 'overpayment scam' or 'shipping scam' to see the various ways the scammer separates you from your money using it. The...

  13. Re: Cigar Humidor Discs for in-case humidification??

    Hi Slim,

    In theory they would work, but the propylene glycol solution that is normally used for cigars pumps out moisture around 72% Relative Humidity, which is too high for the recommended 45-50%...

    Having briefly participated in that thread as a possible buyer for an MKLSFTB, I couldn't believe your timeframe was accurate. And then I checked. Mike posted the original FYI in September 2016. Ye...

    During your search, one thing to keep in mind is that by definition vibrato is achieved by modulating the pitch of a note. The most common manual techniques for achieving this on a steel string...

    Saw the one you're talking about online a couple days ago. Looks kinda funny without '(The) Flatiron' on the headstock, but that's just me. Built by Gibson in Nashville instead of Bozeman a year...

    A Red Bear will be an awesome addition! I'm surprised we haven't had one yet, although I do remember picking with one sometime. Might have been at a jam instead.
