    Thanks Mandobar - unfortunately that link takes me to the audio CD, not the Mel Bay book. I’m hoping to get Chris’s tab for his specific rendition of Panhandle Rag as played on Leading Off. If...

    Re: Apitius J Model

    Hey Spud -
    I could talk for DAYS about how much I love mine, but a shorter version for now. Took the Vanguard a while to break in, and even though I thought it was perfect from the moment I first...

    Playing for 30+ years. Currently I practice at least 2 hours / weekday and about 6 on Sat and Sun (that’s 6 hrs each day.)
