    Re: Rot smell on strings how to get rid of it?

    Copper can have an odor as it oxidizes, and bronze is primarily copper. I have some bass strings with a lot of copper in the windings, and they will make my hands smell. Just wipe them down often...

    Re: the first 3 tunes you learned?

    Whatever the first three in the Jack Tottle book were. Arkansas Traveler, probably Cripple Creek, maybe Blackberry Blossum.

    All good, but I really like Witchcraft.
  10. Re: Good mandolin choice for woman with small hands

    Mandolin requires longer stretches than double bass if you play Simandl on a 41-42" scale.

    Some of the old Lyon & Healeys were violin scale, 13". I have one, but it honestly doesn't make that...

    Re: Autumn Leaves - Mandolin Chord Melody [Tab]

    I think it was Adderley's first album as a leader. Miles did not hold back anything, and with along Sam Jones et al, they made a great record. It's on a lot of must-have jazz record lists, including...

    Re: New Vessel Loar A5 tribute

    I have the Kentucky model that was loosely based on the Griffith. I don't know, but doubt that they paid a lot of attention to the thickness measurements. Anyway, I like it enough that I'm having...
  15. Re: Recommendations for a quality but affordable mandolin

    I just went to check prices on new Kentucky KMs and they have nearly doubled. They seem to have discontinued the KM900.

    Re: The Don Stiernberg Quartet - New Release

    Maybe he will, but I can tell you that both the mandolins and guitars used are listed on the CD jacket. And on which tracks.

    I'm keeping my copy in the car right now, so don't have it in front of...

    Hey! Quit screwing around and finish my mandolin! Wow, puts it down in the chair and it's still ringing.

    Nice playing, mandolin sounds great, and I need to learn 3rd Street Gypsy Rag.
