    Re: What strings for Gibson F4 (1911)?

    Thanks, folks, for the suggestions. So I've just order a set of the Mangan Monel lights. If not satisfied, I'll move on to the Thomastiks (mediums-Mittels). I have the Thomastiks on my Calace...

    I recently had my grandpa's fiddle, unplayed for decades, refurbished so I could play with it ... and bought a carbon fiber bow for this purpose. I can't really afford lessons ... at least not long...

    Re: Visit to Carter Vintage Guitars

    I live 650 miles away, but I'd walk there if I could afford to buy the Gilchrist F4 they have!

    Re: Pettine Method copyright?

    Re: Bellenghi and Weidt

    These are at the Library of Congress. Because these are way out of copyright, I guess my goal is to create a pdf of each and somehow share. I have to figure out how to share a sizable pdf. In any...

    ... when you spot a bass banjo and you think it is a mandolinist's worst nightmare.

  14. Re: Lyon & Healy Style A, #2356 -- Looking for info

    Thanks, mrmando, for your expert help with this. I see you are in Seattle which is a nice coincidence since I purchased this from Thunder Road Guitars in Seattle.

    Best,

  15. Re: Lyon & Healy Style A, #2356 -- Looking for info

    mrmando, the label says Style A. It does not have the pull-out rest ... which I had to search here in the Cafe to know what you meant.

    Answer: Use Bass clef

    Can someone clear up the difference between Mezzacapo, Edouardo, 1832-1898 and Mezzacapo, Edourdo, d. 1942? Wikipedia, and thus much of the rest of the world, is the source of the first set of dates...
