  1. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    The quack Dr who inserted goat testes was pretty crazy, and it wasn't even FICTION! :) . That Dr later made the huge 15000 watt station on the Mexico border.

    This series is fantastic. I've been looking forward to it for months. The Carter family info is really interesting and amazing how influential they were. Also, I knew about cowboy movement due to...

    Re: Humidipak - WARNING

    Do you REALLY think that if I had seen or heard about issues of leakage prior to this experience I would have used them in my 20+ yr old Martin?

    Re: Where can I find a MANDOLA strap?

    I really like Sully's Straps. I have one for my guitar and one on my F mando. Pat Sullivan makes a great custom strap per your needs. Great service, too (no financial interest).

    Re: Paul Simon at ground zero today

    By the way, is Simon using an alt. tuning on the guitar for this performance of Sound of Silence? I play several of his on guitar, but not this one. Thanks.

    Re: Paul Simon at ground zero today

    It was a great performance by Paul. I watched very little of the day's events, but this is one I happen to catch live. Amazing how the words to Sound of Silence applies to 9/11 tragedy.

    It was...

    Josh, that's good work with your #11 blade Xacto! I've used those for years, too, and used to have to cut film for camera ready art a long time ago before we had Illustrator, etc. (product graphics,...

    I figured this out on guitar a LONG time ago, but never tried it on mando. I think I was using Drop D capoed on the 5th fret, but later read that Buckingham used a different tuning. Might explain...
