    I haven't listened to the Peter Rowan one yet. Thanks for the heads up Ryan. I'll be sure to listen.

    Re: Understanding double-stops...

    If I recall correctly, the Intermediate Mandolin instruction book had a whole section or two devoted to double stops and their theory. NFI, I just remember it being useful.

    Re: Mid-range Case Recommendations

    I recently bought a Crossrock Fiberglass case and really like it. It has backpack straps for festivals or airports or whatever. They usually run around $185 on Amazon, but I found one at around...

    Re: Midrange Cases; worth the expense?

    I picked up a Crossrock fiberglass this week for my Weber. It fits a little loose, but they have a extra strip of padding included to snug up the fit. I had no problems with a tonegard and strap...

    Re: Eastman Octave

    Re: Eastman Octave

    Doug,
    The ones they sell as EJ72 currently are not long enough for the A course I believe. The back of the packaging notes that they are for a scale length of 15.875". It just wasn't enough for...

    Re: Eastman Octave

    For those using J72 strings, how did you use them on the A string courses? The J72s I bought from Amazon for Mandola were not close to being long enough on the A strings. Could you provide a link...

    Yes, they are at the same show as far as I know. The article I posted earlier had more specs. I believe they come in 3 colors: butterscotch blonde, fiesta red, and lake placid blue. I'm pretty...

    Re: Is this Mike Marshall?

    The guy listed as the mandolin player for the album that song is on is Pat McLaughlin. The gentleman in that video is not Mike Marshall, but I can't say for certain that it is Pat McLaughlin.

    Scored front row at the Charleston Music Hall last Friday night. What a great show! I even caught a pick from Sam. Ever the joker, his picks say "Sum Bish"! I will try to upload a pic of...

    I was digging through my archives last night and found a boot of the benefit concert that was done for Tony after the flooding. Him and Ricky did a few tunes together there as well. I couldn't...

    That's what I thought as well. I wonder if it was a cultural difference thing. Or that Tony wanted to stay mostly acoustic and Ricky was headed in another direction. I still think it strange that...

    Here is another speculation without a whole lot to back it up. Did Ricky and Tony ever record together again after that rough time frame? I am thinking that Sam and Jimmy and Dawg were with Tony...

    Re: Skaggs & Rice Tribute

    I feel the same about this recording as well. It should be one of the first few references for both mandolin and vocals in the bluegrass/brother duo type of music. It is very approachable.
