    Hey! Welcome to the Cafe. The Eastman is a fine instrument. For many people it is enough. Certainly for lots of folks who even play for actual money. Have fun experimenting with picks and string...

  9. Re: Concert of Swedish folk music with bouzouki and mandobass

    That was a hoot. Great tunes and such an anachronism of costuming. I particularly enjoyed the pinup on the Mandobass like it was an old B17!
