    Re: My thumb hurts...

    Oh no! Pain is the worst. Others have said it -- don't play through pain. You wouldn't run through pain if you wanted to continue to run on a regular basis. You'll end up injured and could risk...

    Re: Big fingers

    When I first started playing mandolin and I was watching the first intro video I ever watched -- they were showing how to make an open D chord like 2-0-0-2, and I distinctly remember thinking the...

    Re: 23 Loar Setup Video

    That was a great video. I watched the whole damn thing. Haters gonna hate, especially on the Internet. Thanks for sharing!
  5. Re: Paduana and Galliard by Melchior Borchgreving c1570 - 1632

    Very beautiful, thanks for sharing this stuff. I really appreciate hearing lesser-known composers, especially when the mando is involved. There isn't even a Wikipedia page for Borchgreving.
  6. Re: Keith Newell v Weber A v Collings MT/MT2

    I'd try to play as many of each brand as you can -- and pick the one that strikes your fancy in feel, sound, and looks. The only thing that matters if whether you'll be motivated/excited to pick it...
  7. Re: New Punch Brothers album streams online

    I was just playing my girlfriend, who really disliked the singles, the first song off the album, Familiarity. She ended up liking the song, but made some hilarious observations. First, she said that...
  8. Re: New Punch Brothers album streams online

    After hearing it once, the long form and structured "movements" of the song Familiarity reminds me of Blind Leaving The Blind. Much shorter, but the same idea executed in 10 minutes or whatever. From...
  9. Re: Best Multitasking Mandolin for under $2,500

    Collings MT was my choice for best multitasking mandolin below $2500 a few years ago, and still would be today. No question. Consistent high quality construction, excellent sound, NFI by the way, I...
  10. Re: I am going to spend $1,500 on a new mandolin ...

    First, congratulations on your decision to get (or upgrade) a mando.

    I'll echo similar/same advice:

    Strongly consider an A style (has f shaped holes, but does not have the scroll)

    Why?
    The...

    Branjos Cereal

    I may get chided by mods, but I haven't seen a thread on this topic in the past few weeks, and I find it funny enough to take the risk.

    For the past few years there's been a very popular cartoon...

    Re: Pick Direction Very Important ?

    Early on in learning to play, I came across this topic here at the Cafe. Early awareness of pick direction has paid off in spades!

    Re: I'm a victim of pick goblins

    Does Collings make trip-wires or bear-traps to catch pick goblins, because if so I'll order one.

    If so, can I, ahem,... get them in black top with tortoise binding?:mandosmiley:

    Re: New Nickel Creek Tour Dates Announced

    Ha, I got the e-mail from nickelcreek.com about streaming this track and immediately put an earbud in here at work to listen to it.

    As I started to listen to it it struck me how "in the...

    Re: Marshall/Thile

    This is from Woodsongs after their 2006 album if I recall right.

    Thanks for all the fantastic recommendations - that brassy rendition by the Vienna Art Orchestra is strange! Jeff, yes, definitely old man staring out the window in the rain music. But in a good one,...
  22. Arrangements of Gnossiennes and Gymnopedies

    Recently I have become addicted to Eric Satie, in particular his famous Gymnopedies and Gnossiennes.

    I've found sheet music for both series of tunes, but was wondering if anyone had arrangements...
