    Re: Describe your MAS progression

    Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I believe I have my MAS in remission. Actually, I don't call it a pandemic anymore. I refer to it as “everything going on” because it has had such a wide-reaching...

    Re: sanding/scratching picks for better grip

    Monster Grips. If applied to a clean surface, they last a long time. If they appear to lose their tackiness, wash 'em in soap and water and they're like new again. The Monster Grip will last as...
  4. Re: Anyone know of any nickel-free mando strings?

    Mapes has stainless steel strings. I realize that some stainless has nickel, it's usually less than 1%. They might be able to tell you about the composition.

    Re: Suddenly feeling old

    Things like "early rock 'n' roll" mean different things to different folks. When I talk with my grandkids about music "early" is maybe the Allman Brothers, Buffalo Springfield, Pearl Jam, etc. At...
  10. Re: Good mandolin choice for woman with small hands

    I have fairly large hands and I have trouble thinking of a fingerboard as "chunky." You probably won't do much better. Although they may be out there, I've never seen a mandolin with less than 1...

    Re: A-style and F-style.

    Jimmy Capps

    Jimmy Capps, one of the most respected guitar pickers in Nashville, has passed away. There's hardly a country star that hasn't used his talents in one of their recording sessions. RIP, Jimmy.

    Re: Describe your MAS progression

    My MAS only vacillates commensurate with the amount of money available. It's always chronic but every once in a while, it becomes acute. A couple of weeks ago, it was acute. I ended up treating it...
