    What are you playing the blues on?

    An interesting topic came up in my mandolin lesson recently. I'm taking lessons with Compton, and our emphasis has been the blues alá Papa Charlie McCoy, The Two Poor Boys, Prater & Hayes, etc....

    Re: Early 90's Gibson A5L

    I got a Duff A and that was the game changer for me.

    I would of been completely happy with the A5L, but the Duff is on a whole other level.

    Re: Early 90's Gibson A5L

    I owned this one for a few years. It's a good one. Decent volume with a woody tone.
    The pickguard and EVO frets were done by Steve at Cumberland Acoustics.

    Re: Post a pic of your cat sleeping in your case

    Our little 15 year old Minke is feeling sick again.....we think it may be old age, or some type of stomach cancer.
    Not in pain that we can tell....but in her safe place today.

    Re: Mando and guitar string question

    Round core strings are generally less tension for a given gauge.

    Newtone strings masterclass mediums have as much, or close to, the same tension as Daddario lights.

    Re: 1984 vs New Duff F5 Style Mandolin

    It used to be Mason William's guitar.

    Mark and Tyler are incredible pickers.
    I've met and picked with Tyler. Super nice fella and incredibly talented on just about any string instrument.

    Re: Iluak Ivory - gone??

    I know last year they took some time off, and were back within a month.
    Hopefully that's the case again.
  19. Re: Wrote me another song... and recorded it.

    I think it sounds terrific...and I really like the vocal delivery....reminds me of Terry Allen. (check him out....interesting cat)
    Mando sounds great as well as the guitfiddle.

    Good job man!
  20. Re: Of your favorite instruments that qualify for this site...

    My personal favorite for playing around the house, and with small groups is a Gary Vessel F5.
    Superb tone, and handles all styles of playing with ease.

    Re: No more EXP74's?

    I believe the XT's are taking over from the EXP's.

    The XT's sound pretty good and just a little different than the EXP's. Like they're a little bit "broken in" out of the box.
