    Re: post a video of yourself

    Not a video, but here's a recording I made of "Whiskey Before Breakfast." Given that it was just St. Patrick's Day, and that many of us are housebound with young children, I figured it was an...

    Recording/App Question

    First, this video by Aaron Weinstein is just amazing:

    Second, and here's my question: does anyone know how he's making...

    Boston/Cambridge Music Stores?

    I'll soon be in Boston for a work-related trip, and I'm thinking at some point I'll try to find the time to stop by a music store. I'll be in the Back Bay area, so Cambridge and central Boston are...

    "Dark" Fiddle Tunes?

    So I play lots of fiddle tunes, and they're a generally pretty bright and peppy bunch of songs--and fun to play, of course! I, however, am not always (in fact, rarely) feeling bright and peppy.

    Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    My experience, for the little it's worth:

    I started on mandolin about four years ago, and then picked up an acoustic guitar, an electric bass, and, most recently, a fiddle.

    The mandolin was...
  8. Excellent Introductory Video on the Mandolin

    Re: Eastman El Rey Video Review

    Thanks for the review--very informative!

    I know it's silly, but I'm particularly interested in this e-mando given your description of it as playing like an acoustic, but with no real volume when...

    Re: Starting Left-handed or right

    This thread inspired me to try and play my mandolin left- handed. I'm a righty.

    My brain hurts, and I'm humbled. I'm never trying that again.

    Any ambidextrous players out there?

    Also, I'd...

    Re: Starting Left-handed or right

    In my opinion, writing and picking are the closest analogues one can find when comparing mandolin-playing to an everyday activity. One uses the thumb, index finger, and wrist in both activities, in a...

  17. Re: Do you bring your expensive mando to the bluegrass festival?

    My advice: take the mandolin you love playing most. You're going to be in one of the most beautiful places in the world (Telluride), and you should enjoy it as much as you can. Lots of people leave...

    Re: Article: Andy Statman Rides the Monroe Bus

    I just pre-ordered the record, so I'll find out soon enough, but are there any vocal tunes? I'm imagining Michael Daves maybe singing a song or two, while also handling guitar duties (much like Tim...

    Re: New Kentucky KM-606 mandolins are in the wild!

    $950 is too much for a 606, imo. I liked mine, but couldn't justify keeping it when I already have an Eastman 515.

    I'd say around $500 is a fair price for the 606.
  24. Re: Andrew Marlin, Billy Strings latest albums - not on CD?

    You can buy the CD directly from his website:

    I'd guess that's probably true for the Billy Strings CD, too.
