    Re: ISO standard for musical instruments

    Well, no. ISO 9000 quality management standards may be the most-known (even if apparently less well-understood), but there are over 20,000 ISO standards. Many of them are not used in this country,...

  7. Re: Is the electric guitar dying, taking Gibson and others with i

    OK, the paper hasn't been recycled yet, so I read the article. Looking for the word I didn't see anywhere - RAP. Music free of melody. Wildly popular, successful, performed and loved. So people...

    Don't stop now. I followed the link on the MP3 page to http://thebills.ca, where there's a great video on the band. Wish I was out west so I could catch a live show.
  13. Poll: Re: Mandolin Cafe votes on IBMA Mandolin Player of Year Nominees

    "Best of" awards are seldom that. These days they are recognition of commercial success or media attention. IBMA is an organization for people who are in the bluegrass music business, after all. ...
