    Re: Plans for the Gibson Kalamazoo Site

    This is right down the street from where I live. To think of how many guitarist played their 1st guitar that was built here is amazing. Sad to see it sit idle with all that history oozing from it....

    Re: A good reason to have more than one mandolin

    @Poul Hansen. This one hurt. So you think there's hope? I don't know what they used for finish in 1925. Just don't want to do anything and cause more harm. If we get a stain on a rug, we don't call...

    Re: A good reason to have more than one mandolin

    The cheaper Epiphone to gig with. Plays great, plugs in. Sound is passable. Anything happened to it would be no biggie and totally replaceable. The Gibson for studio, personal use at home or with...

    Re: Pandemic Reading

    As much as one has to practice playing fast, I think you also have to practice listening fast.

    Re: Speed of bluegrass... is it just me?

    The magic is when the masters play fast/difficult but doesn't seem it. Ricky Skaggs, Mark O'Connor, etc. A little clip where I'm working up a Sam Bush bit with a metronome. It's OK-ish, but at the...

    Re: Avoid marking the top of your mandolin

    Heartbreaking. Last overly enthusiastic upstroke to end a song and put this in my otherwise unmarked 25 A4. Was hoping there was a way to buff out or rub back to normal. Well, you have to play em. I...

    Re: RIP Charley Pride

    Sadder is that CMAs held an event a month ago that not only gave him a lifetime achievement award, but most likely the virus too. Be careful folks. This ain't over till the fat lady in a mask sings.
