    Re: Natural talent vs practice

    Yes! Interiority.

    Dawg said,basically,that years ago. Play(not practice) until you develop your own unique sound/style.

    Maybe it is time for me to grow some of those special mushrooms. But...

    Re: Waverly Tuners tight

    Had new Waverly tuners installed on my 1993 Monroe Gibson F5. They are sticky/tight. I'm sure it is because of improper alignment/installation.

    I paid large to have an "expert" repairman install...

    Re: Opinion on nickel vs. gold aesthetics

    Silver plated hardware looks nice when it ages. You can polish it or not. I like it when the silver gets dark.

    On a '26 Fern I'd settle for worn gold. I guess. If I had to.

    Re: No more EXP74's?

    I won't miss the EXPs. XTs are very nice strings. Still sounded good after a month or so of daily playing.

    My hands and ears like Monels though. Hoping that Daddario Monels will come in custom...

    Re: D'addario String Comparison Video

    Just took off a set of XT Daddarios after about 2 months. They were still pretty good but I really prefer the feel and tone of Daddario Monels. I used the XT strings on two different F5 mandos and...

    Re: Material Below the Bridge

    Not nearly the affectation that is the last 9 or 10 frets on a full-Florida fretboard extention.

    Re: Who has thin bluechips?

    Whatever the thickness or brand I want speed bevels.

    I like to add a little steeper bevel on a Red Bear Xtra heavy for mandolin.

    Re: What are you playing for the holidays?

    I always include Halloween as a Holiday,so playing the Theme fromThe Addams family gets me in the mood.

    Later on I like to play my heavily tremoloed version of "Silver Bells" on mandolin.

    Re: Mandolin Orange on today Show

    That Gil reminds me of the X-braced one I had of about that vintage. Great mando but couldn't afford to keep it.

    Such is life.

    Re: What does a mando set-up cost in your area?

    A good set-up person/repairman is worth their weight in platinum.

    Even if I could do it myself I would rather pay to have the job done well. Then I can spend more time playing.

    I don't have...

    Re: Marty Stuart's ex-Loar?

    From the few,3,Loars I have played and the one '29 Fern,I reckon I would prefer a mid to late 20's Fern as my Holy Grail mando. (With a 1" plus a hair nut.)
