    Re: Jenny Lind Polka

    Thank you all for the kind comments :)
    Bill, it is a Haynes mandolin, built by Jerry Haynes of Harlan, Ky. Number 37, I believe built in 2011. Not sure about the wood in it.

    Jenny Lind Polka

    The Jenny Lind Polka, by me. Upon reflection, it's probably a little quick, maybe a little fast to dance to, but I hope you enjoy it, off-the-cuff as it is. I'm trying to learn some more fiddle...

  12. Re: When were you guys first introduced to bluegrass?

    Honestly, I don't remember a time when I wasn't listening to bluegrass. The very first song I can ever remember hearing was "Hard Hearted" by Jim & Jesse. My dad was and is a big bluegrass fan and...

    Yes, one would assume ;) However, at a jam last week, I used a fella's left-handed CT 40, and I couldn't tell much difference with the different bevel. I didn't get to play with it for a couple o'...
