    This one starts out solid, and then gets really fun at around 3:45. Didnít know that John Cowan plays/played with the Doobies.

    Re: Happy 75th Birthday Today, David Grisman!

    Happy birthday to one of the greatest tone poets and tune poets ever!!! When will you be recording “Dawg’s Shelter-in-Place”? I’d call it “Dawg’s Quarantine,” but that would be too tight of a leash.

    When I played that video at 3/4-speed, I thought it lost a littlle of the mando intensity, but it highlighted the beauty of Thileís vocal and playing. Even at 3/4-speed, his break near...

    Re: What's The One That Got Away?

    Two mandos from one trip to Carterís in 2017. No regrets, though, since both were way beyond my price range.

    They had two identical F5ís by Oliver Apitius. One was from 2016, and the other was...
