    Re: Tonegards

    That makes a good case for tonegards on pegheads, which seem to suffer a lot more damage on very expensive instruments. And the added mass probably enhances the sustain.

    Re: String journey on a Collings MT

    I've played the Labella 770M and 880L on my F5L, trying to copy David McLaughlin. My hands tended to kill the sound a little too quickly for me but I sure love his playing with those strings.

    Re: Off to Scotland

    Fit as we are for retirees, it’s nice to know, but we probably won’t do that. There might be a pub in the way.

    The Ruhland at Carter's should be on the list. They're pretty powerful instruments. NFI.

    Great. If you're buying, I'd like double cheese and pepperoni.

    Re: Help With A Couple Chords

    Sounds like Hotel California. Can’t quite tell what notes you’re playing in those 2 chords.

    Also, mandolins typically are not played like little guitars, but rather as plucked violins, ie,...

    Re: Silverangel Econo A #446

    Stiffer picks can be much louder, like a Red Bear. As for loud mandolins, Audey Ratliff builds loud mandolins, F and A. I have one of each, both CountryBoys. Plain but loud, great BG instruments.
  20. Re: suggestions/thoughts for someone wanting to learn inlay work

    If you're cutting the shell, use good ventilation and a proper dust mask. The dust can make you very sick. Been there, did that, when I was young and foolish. And there's a reason jewelers saw...

    Re: The Sun Jumped Up This Morning

    Well, he's playing it in E and its Woody Guthrie, so I suspect, and it sounds it too, that its I-V, I-IV, maybe not quite that order, with a vi (minor) in it. And it sure sounds like the Crawdad...

    Not being loud enough can be translated to 'the other guys are too loud'.
