    Re: Opinion on nickel vs. gold aesthetics

    Speaking only for myself, I much prefer nickel. Obviously this is a purely subjective choice that has nothing to do with tone, but it's a strong enough preference for me that I probably wouldn't buy...

    Nobody can afford that Ellis. We are Icarus, and it is the sun. You want that MFO gloss top at Down Home Guitars.

    Wow. I should blow up my damned television. I waste so much time.

    Re: Natural talent vs practice

    I don't know if I have any natural talent. What I do have is an abiding love for the sounds of acoustic guitars and mandolins that's been with me for as long as I can remember. That's allowed me to...
  5. Re: Mandolin players who bought or have played a Waterloo Mandoli

    I've been looking to upgrade my own mandolin situation, and even the regular Collings tailpiece leaves something to be desired.

    I figured it was just a blurry man strumming a bouzouki.

  7. Re: Sirius Radio Replaced Bluegrass station 62 with 24/7 Dolly Pa

    Thanks. My information was very stale. I don't really miss Spotify, but I'm always in favor of their being more choices in the market. My gym plays a generic mix of classic rock that is...
  8. Re: Sirius Radio Replaced Bluegrass station 62 with 24/7 Dolly Pa

    Worth every penny (and it's only about 33 cents a day for the premium service). Between Spotify and podcasts, I haven't had to listen to a radio commercial, NPR pledge drive, or pay a Siruius...

    Re: Visit to Carter Vintage Guitars

    I traded a couple of emails with one of the well-known shops about them, and the owner spoke really highly about them. Then I mentioned I own a Pono octave, and he said that to his ears the Pono (at...
  10. Re: Sirius Radio Replaced Bluegrass station 62 with 24/7 Dolly Pa

    Don't they charge an extra $5 or something per month for online access? Bluegrass Junction was one of the few draws that ever tempted to come back to Sirius, even if it was somewhat too "Nashville"...

    Re: Visit to Carter Vintage Guitars

    Were you looking at one of those archtop Northfield octaves? Those look just gorgeous. Nice to hear from someone who wasn't blown away by them. It helps to keep my feet on the ground.
  15. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    I'm a little embarassed to say I stopped listening to the show at least a decade before Garrison Keilor retired, and I haven't come back since Chris took over. I would add it to my podcasts in a...

    Re: Musician Jokes

    I had to do an image search to figure out what the heck these were supposed to be (finger tip protectors, apparently). Ignoring how silly they are in general, why does the hand model need one on his...

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    First and only so far.
  18. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    Just to balance out the thread, I'm a huge Chris Thille fan. I think he brings as big a bag of tricks to a fiddle tune as anyone I've ever heard, and has terrific versatility. Love to hear him play...

    NERD FIGHT!

    I kid, y'all. I went to high school in the 80's in a place where I had zero access to accoutic music, Marty Stuart's hair would have seemed sort of tame, and I was subjected to Van...

    Re: Levon Helm on Letterman

    Must me some kind of algorhythm that's boosting it today, because I saw it a few minutes ago. I noticed the mandolin before I noticed who was holding it.

    Re: Naming your Mandolin

    Nope. I don't name cars, guitars, mandolins or bodily organs. I only rarely bother to name the housecats I feed.

    What's the deal with Vintage F4s?

    I've always thought old Gibson F4s were gorgeous mandolins, but I've never played one and don't know much about them. For example, how would y'all characterize the tone of these? And why does a...

    Re: HOUSTON Jams

    I wondered where the Hickory Hollow jam relocated to. Eric at Fuller's said they were continuing it at the new HH location, but I never attempted to track it down. I'm usually good for a few fiddle...
