    Re: Arm rest. Y or N?

    I played without one on my Weber for many years. The finish was satin from the factory, now it is glossed in that area by me!

    But I will say, I bought one for my other mandolin and now I can't...
  2. Re: Transcriptions for Butch Baldassari's "Travellers" Album?

    I have started to learn El Grillo using my ear and the tef files from earlier in this thread. The bare bones melody isn't as tough as I thought, but getting those double stops right is a bigger...
  3. Re: Transcriptions for Butch Baldassari's "Travellers" Album?

    Reid,

    Did you happen to record your performance? I'd love to hear/see it. I'm so happy to see folks with as much enthusiasm for this album as me. It really is fantastic.

    Thanks so much Rob! It certainly will! I'll be having sore fingers for a while.
  5. Re: Transcriptions for Butch Baldassari's "Travellers" Album?

    Rob,

    Thanks for the .tef file idea. I guess I was hoping that Butch had put out an official book before he passed, but I guess it doesn't exist. After searching for the El Grillo .tef file, I...
  6. Transcriptions for Butch Baldassari's "Travellers" Album?

    Hey all. Does anyone know if there is a book that transcribes the tunes in the "Travellers" album? It has to be one of my favorite Baldassari albums (if not my favorite mandolin album). I see on...
  7. Re: Buying my first Mandolin- Equipment questions

    You might want to invest in a string winder. You can typically find them less than $10 online (Amazon) or any music store if there are any open in Nashville right now. Have you gone to The Mandolin...

    Re: Quarantine MAS most likely resolved!

    Thanks urobourous! I was initially looking for a natural finish on the electric, but I agree that flame top just pops out. I used to have an import mandostrat that was hard to play. John's...

    I do adore the Pava. Let's see your Morris! I like looking at mandolins just about as much as I like playing them!

    Re: Quarantine MAS most likely resolved!

    Thanks Rob. I am counting my blessings, as they say. I used to have an import Fender Mando-Strat for my electric. I really never bonded with it. This JL Smith electric is 100% better in every...

    Quarantine MAS most likely resolved!

    So I just got the 2nd half of my "quarantine" MAS this afternoon. I sold a couple of mandolins at the beginning of the lock down and have been really soul searching for what I want to have to play...

    Are you aware of Sierra Hull and Sarah Jarosz? 2 top level mandolin players roughly your age. They're out there, for sure.

    Re: Charleston SC Bluegrass Festival 2020

    Awesome! I live about 5 miles from this festival, so it's a must do for me. I've never seen Del and the Boys live, so I'm really excited. I'll be on the lookout for you!
