    A chord without muting A string

    Without beating a dead horse, I have some extra practice time this year. I've been away from the cafe for a while, and it's nice to be back.

    To dive right into the question, I have difficulty with...

    Re: =O Carter Vintage Guitars

    Sorry about the click-bait title with no content. Got distracted. Forgot to even take pictures...

  6. Re: A mandolin in your hands is better than any not with you

    Yes, it makes enough sound to hear yourself in a quiet room, but it won't be heard in the next room, for example from outside the hotel rooms I spend half my life in. :)

    I exaggerated earlier when...

    Alternate title: "F-holes? Oval holes? No holes!"

    I get it, it's not for everyone, but I needed this if I was ever going to get on a regular practice schedule. :)

    Re: Your favorite Big Muddy and why!

    I've never been able to try one, I'd have to go on looks alone. Nobody does that when it comes to mandolins, do they? ;)

    On a serious note, it _would_ be nice to see them in the wild sometime.

    Re: New Pick Day(?)

    Thank you. I love the Eastman. My ears need some time to get used to the sound. I wasn't expecting it to be _so_ different from my Epiphone. I love that I can fit my finger on a note without touching...

    So, my wife learned that there was this pick made of aerospace plastic that I thought was cool. Yesterday she hands me this tiny little present to unwrap, and I about flipped when I saw the Blue Chip...

    Re: funny thing I noticed

    How hard is it to replace a banjo bridge? It's doable by the average person but still not trivial on a mandolin. Changing picks is a really easy way to change sounds. :)
