    Re: Convert...

    I have a friend who is an accomplished guitarist, and he decided to built a mandolin a few years back. He started with StewMac's Campfire/Army Navy kit, or whatever it was called. I warned him "That...

    Re: Eva Scow - After You've Gone

    Thanks for that link, Scott. We actually have this show on BluRay somewhere around here, but haven't listened to it in a long time. Fantastic, melodic playing all the way around. This is my kind of...

    Re: A new prototype mandolin

    I love it also. Slightly reminiscent of a modernized Maccaferri-style design, which I also love. Would love to hear this one!

    Hammered dulcimer would be a PIA also. Years ago I had a Djangolin, which had a slotted headstock. if you think a regular mandolin is a pain, try one with a slotted headstock. Never again.

    Looks fantastic - I also have a thing about guitar-shaped mandolins, as shown in my avatar.

    Re: Tweaks for weak sounding E strings

    Other than the weak E strings, how are you liking the El Rey?? I keep gazing at those photos, trying to think about what I could peddle to raise funds for one. Anxious to see one in person!

    Re: Does mandolin improve guitar technique

    I believe that any time you spend with an instrument on your lap and a pick in your hand is time well spent. Probably 45 years ago I worked out (on guitar) a "Medley Of Irish Fiddle Tunes" off David...

  25. Re: Y'all missed some great mandolin playing in Asheville

    Man, I would LOVE to make it to one of their gigs - sadly, none even remotely near us. Maybe next time. From what I'm hearing about these shows, seems like this may not wind up being a one-off tour.
