    Re: How to “woodshed”

    I picked up the term at an Irish session. This was about 25 years ago when I was still a little fresh on the fiddle and it was gently suggested that I might woodshed a little bit. I had to ask what...

    I based my post on a previous email to them.

    The moonshine is code for their coating. I'm not sure if the unwound strings are coated or not though.
  8. Re: Elixir Official Notice Mandolin strings discontinued

    Re: Ordering my first mandolin- KM156

    A 272 is a good instrument for the price point. I got one in January because I have an F5 and an A5 but was lacking an oval hole and didn't have a big budget. I've been satisfied.

    Re: block inlay patterns

    Truth! I'm in the hate 'em category myself, but I don't judge anyone who loves them. That's what's great about having asthetic options.

    Re: New Hampshire/ Vermont Jams

    It seems like there are many people so close and yet so far! I'm near the NH/ME line in Maine but it's sadly a bit of a haul to Lincoln.

    Personally, I would love to own an N5S but it's out of my price point for a good while.

    Re: Nickel plated steel strings

    I doubt it too, I'm just curious as to why the difference in size exists in the D'Addario version. Like if it's to decrease bass response or something. Just seems weird considering that every other...

    Nickel plated steel strings

    Some ways back I ordered some nickel plated steel strings on an order from Mapes (along with an equal number of PB). Not thinking there was any difference, I ordered both with the standard 40-11...

    Re: How many of you play 3rd-less chords?

    Speaking for myself, I prefer my Irish trad served guitar-less. Mainly for this reason.

    Re: Chords and double stops in Trad

    On a pedantic level, the term "pure drop" means a truly traditional form in ITM parlance, which means only melody instruments since accompaniment by chording instruments is a later 20th century...

    Re: How many of you play 3rd-less chords?

    I'm not the best w/ chord theory and whatnot (when it comes to trad, I'm mainly playing the fiddle), but I would say that that I agree with the idea of not always playing the 3rd or all notes of the...
