  4. Re: When did you realize mandolin was your primary instrument?

    I decided when I bought my mandolin and started to play it. I don't really play anything else. I have a guitar and a banjo and a saz, but I will pick them up and mess with them from time to time,...

    Re: Garcia guitar Grisman mandolin

    The Garcia before the Dead project is really worthwhile if you want to deep dive into the roots of Dead music. Much better (to me) as a historical study than strictly as a musical project.

    Re: What is Jeff Austin using here?

    I asked about Jeff's setup in a fan group that I am in. I am not an electric player and don't have any real knowledge of pedals or what most of this means, so I can't answer any follow-up questions,...

    Re: Garcia guitar Grisman mandolin

    Bobby and the Midnights was one of Bobby's earliest side projects (he has had a lot of them over the years). They did Big Iron quite a few times.

    Re: What is Jeff Austin using here?

    Jeff bought Drew Emmitt's Nugget. In a 2011 interview he said he was using a Baggs pickup (so it may have been the same pickup).

    I miss Jeff.

    Re: Is this a mandolin??

    I am not an expert in world instruments, but this looks like a gambus to me, or at least closer to that than anything else I can find. Although many of these are fretless, there are also many...
  11. Re: Thile and Grier at The Prism Coffeehouse, 2002

    Was the Prism still over on Rugby Road at that point?

    I went to college when it was over there, but I was gone long before 2002. Nowadays I think they have something they still refer to as...
