  1. Re: When did you realize mandolin was your primary instrument?

    I started on guitar at age 16 in 2001. When I went to college, a friend had a cheapo mandolin and let me borrow it for the weekend. I was hooked right away!
    I still play some guitar but from that...
  2. Re: Mandolin Orange live streamed performance yesterday

    It was a great show, really well done video and sound. They were in Asheville at Echo Mountain recording studio. I too was a little disappointed not to see the Loar, but also surprised how much I...

    Re: Heads up for you Mandolinists with Cats

    Thanks for the warning. I do have tiger lillies outside the front walkway area, but I don't have a cat.
    Probably easier to just keep the flowers and not risk it by getting one. :cool:
  6. Re: How did the "curl" on the mandolin body evolve?

    I like F style mandolins, but I don't go around talking trash about how "Silly" of a "bad taste" in design the A style is, because for some people it is exactly what they want. It's OK to have a...

  8. Re: Anybody going/been to Alan Bibey Mandolin Camp?

    Like AlanN, I have been to every year of AB Camp so far.

    I've gotten together with my 2 band mates once in an outdoor and spacious setting. It was ok. Now NC has a mask requirement for public places.

    Re: Mike Marshall The Movie

    :)) there you go!
    I'd watch it, and given Netlfix's most recent movies, it probably isn't too far fetched of a pitch.

    Re: DolaGard question

    Interesting. When I talked to Tony about getting one for my Eastman mandola he seemed to think it wouldn't work too well.

    Re: Four Finger Chop Chords and the Pain!

    You can honestly get 90+% of the sound of a 4 finger G chop by just using the two low strings and being careful not to hit the high strings.
    If you play it with your second and third finger then you...

    these books are great! I have the Dawg Jazz book that I bought from the man himself at a show and have borrowed a friend's Dawg Grass book. Really nicely done. Thank you Dawg!
