    Re: Video of stolen 10 string guitar bouzouki

    That’s terrible to hear (not the zouk, which sounded lovely, but the story). Did you ever recover any of the stolen instruments Nigel?
  2. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    I’m a huge CT fan, and IMHO the show can be almost sublime at times but a complete dud at other times. I thought the show last week was in the latter camp (with some exceptions). I’m especially put...

    Re: Jeremy Kittel Band featuring Josh Pinkham

    Thought Id bump this threading give a shout out to Josh Pinkham and his amazing mandolin chops. I saw them for the third time since the release of Whorls. They had the full 5 piece band last...
  4. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    If you ever met Chris in person, he’s a very down-to-earth nice guy. It’s true, he’s a ham, and thankfully so. Many entertainers are wired that way. And yes, when you have his amazing talent, it can...
  5. Re: Live From Here Joni Mitchell musicians' birthdays

    She really poured her soul into that performance (pun intended). Lovely.
  6. Re: Live From Here Joni Mitchell musicians' birthdays

    Ditto. Aoife nailed it, and in her own style... I don’t usually sit through the entire show, but I did tonight. Excellent.

    Hmm, usually divorce comes after a trip to TMS.
  8. Re: Article: The 1978 Bob Givens Interview from The Guitars Frien

    Thanks Scott for the interesting articles. The Guitars Friend read was particularly a blast from my past, since I took guitar lessons at Music, Strings, and Things in Birmingham, MI. I later moved...

    Re: Campanella Mandolin

    Congrats! Those Campanellas are lovely. Would you be the same Yooper who recently sold your Brentrup?

    Re: Mandolin or Octave Mandolin

    Mandolin would be a better fit. Whether you choose a flat top or an arch top octave mandolin, it’s voicing is similar to guitar and would be lost in the mix. You might want to consider a resonator...

    Re: Vulfpeck - Thile appearance

    That was insane! And watching Chris dance off the stage afterwards with his Loar made me hold my breath. What if he whacked it or dropped it?!
  12. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    I like the leisurely pace. It reminds me of listening to Detroit baseball announcer Ernie Harwell calling the play by play in his relaxed southern drawl during my youth. Almost like a mantra that...
  13. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Different strokes... I really enjoyed the jazz documentary.
  14. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Not to mention his stellar mandolin chops.

    Re: Station Inn advice...Mike Compton

    Yes, definitely get there early, since you do have to stand in line. It also improves your chances of a decent parking space. We parked early in their lot, walked to dinner, and then came back and...

    Re: Summer NAMM 2019 Report

    If you haven’t played one multidon, I recommend trying one first. I waited for months for an Eastman octave but ended up returning it after being disappointed.

    Re: In Praise of Michael Heiden

    Beautiful! Is that the 2017 build listed for sale on his web site? What’s the scale length on it? Enjoy!
  23. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I think you hit the nail on the head. Collaboration = licensing fees. I think this was Gibson's MO all along.

    Re: Carbon Fiber Mandolin

    I’d be surprised if you could make a quality CF mandolin at that price point, but I’d love to be proven wrong. Count me in on an A-style. Tone, volume, and playability are paramount.
