    Re: Muleskinner video

    Rowan is still doing it. I've seen him a couple of times lately. He was with the Travel'n McCoury's doing a full set of WSM music and it was very, very cool.

    Re: Muleskinner video

    I love Muleskinner. Watched and listened many times. I only wish they would have featured Clarence's solo work a bit more.

    Re: What's up with the classifieds?

    It's not just sellers that need good communication skills; buyers should also take care to instill confidence to the sellers. As a case in point, I recently had a nice mandolin for sale in the...

    Re: You owe it to your mandolin (and yourself)

    Goose is absolutely right. I gave Big Joe a call last summer and scheduled my instrument a visit at his mando-spa. He did an extension scoop with faux frets, fit the bridge completely to the top,...

  10. Re: I Used To Hate Here, Now I Love Her.. An encouraging word

    I am with you on this. Whether its learning something from a recording, paper or something you came up with on your own, the key is isolating the tricky part, slowing it down, looping and looping it...

    Re: Charlie Derrington gone

    Re: Fake Gibson on Pawn Stars ($1500)

    I think I posted this in the last PS mando thread but I visited the store last summer at mid-morning during the middle of the week. There were so many people there I had to park a block away and...
  13. Re: anyone use these nice looking Mandolin stringwinders?

    I have the Wildwood. I bought it at a camp that the maker attended and had some in the camp store. Very nice. Like someone else said, it seems pricey but the trouble and time to make one for myself...

    Re: Pee Wee Lamberts 1922 Loar

    I think I'm listening to that mando right now. Did Pee Wee use it in the original Columbia recordings? I've been reading Ralph's book and listening to all this great old music from the 40's. Ralph...

  16. Re: Need Suggestions for Mando Duet Gospel Tunes

    Try Butch Baldassari's "Mandolin Hymns." Very tasteful. I had some selections from this played at my father's funeral. I am particularly fond of "Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior." It's a beautiful piece...

    Re: Best piece of advice you've been given

    "It's all in your right hand."

    Re: Muleskinner....

    I love their version of "Dark Hollow." If memory serves, I believe they were just a group of friends who threw together a band for a local TV show because Bill Monroe couldn't make the gig.
