    Re: Artistworks question

    I have done both the ArtistWorks and the PegHead Nation courses. I personally struggled with the ArtistWorks and had much better success with PegHead Nation. A lot of that was directly on the issue...
  3. Re: Do you know of an easy, safe program to convert wav files to

    I've used an older program called foobar2000 for file type conversions of all kinds. Very easy and intuitive. It does need the LAME plugin for MP3. I generally prefer FLAC.

    Re: Dialing in live sound-monitors, mics etc

    The Beatles stopped playing live because they couldn't hear each other. There may have been other issues, but this was a big one for them.
  5. Re: when the Christmas cactus is in bloom

    I have no idea why, but our Christmas cactus started blooming just before Thanksgiving this year and is still blooming. It had two sets of huge blooms, but has continuously had at least a few buds...
  6. Re: MP3 of the Day - Redtail Reel by Andrew Hendryx from the albu

    This is really terrific.

    I have been a big Andrew Hendryx fan since I first encountered him playing in Yarn in 2009. He is probably at least as responsible as any other mandolin player for me...

    Re: Mid-Missouri M-1

    Go to the Big Muddy website: https://www.bigmuddymandolin.com/store

    Figure out which model is closest to what you have. I usually figure about 70% of a comparable new mandolin and then adjust...

    Re: Another Thomastik Infeld Question

    Wein is just the German for Vienna. I'd guess they are exactly the same, just labeled/packaged for different markets

    Take a simple fiddle tune in D that you play in open position and doesn't require moving up the neck. Move put your index finger on the A string, 5th fret and play from there. Take a simple fiddle...

    Re: Olive wood for mandolin body?

    I am not a wood guru. Olive trees tend to be slower growing and smallish in diameter. They can eventually grow into large trunks that I have no doubt you can get pieces wide enough. However, the...

    Re: Billy Strings The Deja Vu Experiment

    I watched part of the first one and I will watch tonight. Have listened to several of them on Nugs, but haven't gotten to all of them yet. Can't wait for live music to return, streaming is just not...

    Re: What do the numbers mean???

    I typed out a very long answer about sus2 and sus4 chords with a side of power chords, before realizing that was not at all what you were asking about. Apparently too slow to get the delete button,...

    Re: Mandolin Build RAG Mandolins

    I think that is the Bright Box in Winchester. I've been there, but not in a while. The Camel in Richmond is also doing some live shows indoors. I've not been comfortable with the indoor shows, so my...

    Yes, I mean Dirty Grass Players. I also love Fireside Collective and had that show on my radar. I believe they were scheduled to play one Friday night a month at the Camel for the whole year. ...

    They are a really great band. I've only been able to see them in person once, having had conflicts a couple other times when they played near me. I was hoping to get down to the Camel a few times...

    Re: Which way do musicians make more money?

    I think that "buy a CD of the show on the way out of the show" just does not give enough time to compile a good mix. I have friends who are tapers, there is quite an art to it, even when you have a...

  20. Re: Article: Registration Opens for 8th Annual Monroe Mandolin Ca

    Thanks for your perspective. I've been playing about three years, have taken a variety of courses, in person and online. I still consider myself a sort of advanced-beginner.
