    Re: Boston/Cambridge Music Stores?

    If you want to see mandolins, I don't think there's anything much in Boston or Cambridge anymore. The Music Emporium, somewhat west of Cambridge in Lexington is fabulous but I wouldn't call it...

    Re: Article: Andy Statman Rides the Monroe Bus

    I have heard the entire album and I think it's right up there with his debut album "Flatbush Waltz". If some of you newbies have been thinking of boarding "The Statman Bus" now would be a great time...

    In Praise of Mediocrity (?)

    Recently, people were discussing the pursuit of mandolin "brilliance" on another thread. I'd said that one of the joys of taking up mandolin in my 60's was that I didn't have to aim for excellence;...

    Re: Dirk Powell and Tim O'Brien

    One important thing about playing Oldtime as opposed to Bluegrass is the backup playing. Notice Carl's and Caleb's use of two and three finger chord shapes and letting the chords ring. That is quite...

    Re: Robot Mandolin Player

    That's crazy! And cool! And not really playing a mandolin. More of a harp made out of a mandolin. The string spacing at the bridge has been changed so that each string can be plucked independently....

    Re: Repositioning Bridge

    It’s quite easy, even I can manage.

    Get the bridge roughly where you think it should be; so that the 12th fret is halfway between the nut and bridge. That’s not the correct position but close...
