  1. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    Absolutely. And there are a lot of differences. Keillor's was a laid-back hot cocoa with marshmallow, Thile's is a hyper-hopped espresso triple-shot.

    Your weekend morning hot beverage of choice...

    Re: just say no to a lone star

    Ouch. Got me again.

    Some forums are programmed to tell you when a thread is past its go-by date. Not this one. Maybe some day . . . .

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    I dunno. For the money, you could get a Big Muddy AND a Red Line Traveler . . . .

    Re: just say no to a lone star

    That's too bad. What I like about the company is that they have so many kinds of south-of-the-border instruments - bajo sexto, guitaron, charango, and so on. But the prices are too good to be true. ...
  9. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    Good on you! I'm looking forward to the day when my mando or dobro playing is good enough that I can leave my flattop at home. (If I could only break out of G . . . .)

    Re: Looking for some recommendations

    That works well for lots of folks. That's why it's so popular.

    Those books always confuse me. For some of us, it's easier to just play along with recordings and try to find the notes. (I've been...
  11. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    Number One usually means favorite instrument or most-played instrument.

    What's an IT?

  13. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    So, Teddy, you have some responses. What do they make you think?
  14. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    Hey, no fair! That's two questions!

    Learned guitar in at sixteen in self-defense. (It was 1968. Wouldn't have had any friends otherwise.)

    My main instrument is a Guild D-35 dread. Also close at...

    Re: Naming your Mandolin

    Only if the name is cutesy.

    I've had three Plymouth Valiants. One was an automatic. It stalled at red lights unless I put it in neutral and kept my foot on the gas pedal. When the light turned...

    Re: Naming your Mandolin

    I usually name my instruments, cars, amps, and homes. My latest mando acquisition is an old oval A Gibson Junior.

    I call it Junior. You can probably can guess why.

    My other mando is orange. I...

    I promise I'll post 'em when it's done. Which won't be a while but will be worth the wait.

    Tonight I'm thinking: clear gloss nitro.

    Re: Shipping Costs

    A friend just bought a used mando online. It arrived in just the case - no box! The case had tape around it, but that was it.

    I'll bet the shipping price was right.

    Re: Getting the Gallatin look

    Based on your photo, I don't think this beat-up mando is the right one for the look you got on yours - too much embedded color to come out well. I'll definitely keep this thread bookmarked for future...

    Re: Getting the Gallatin look

    Gorgeous. Looks like you nailed it!

    How clean did you get the top before dying it? Is there still some old finish residue, or was the wood fairly clean? Mine started as Sheraton brown, and there's...
