    Re: Live from Here is no more

    That is a total downer. The show was exceptional and I loved the fact that a show like that existed in our current culture. I thought Thile was always captivating and the content wonderful.

    Re: Some very fine Nancy Blake mandolin

    The tune is called Hangin’Dog off the “While Passing Along This Way” album. Great album BTW! I have been playing this tune for years. Good to see that I mostly got it right. Thanks for posting.

    Re: Sorry for this string height question

    If you don’t own calipers then try this. Get a blue chip 60 pick and adjust the bridge until the strings just touches the pick at the 12th fret. Easy and accurate. You can easily make micro...

    Re: do many fo you mix strings

    I have in the past but found the hassle of it not worth the small change in tone and playability. I have learned how to make standard sets sound like I want them to sound.
