  1. Re: Jacobson Nautilus Mandolin #39 - Ziricote and Birdseye

    Re: Under Seat on Plane?

    The planes I've been on have barely had enough room under the seat for a laptop.

    Re: Looking for mandolin fret repair in Atlanta

    He's saying Marty is "in Marietta if I recall correctly".

    Barry Kratzer, though, is near Savannah.

    New A's and E's frequently sound muted to my ears, for what it's worth.

    Re: Dirty old town tab

    I taught myself this song, on a whim, last week. I'll have to sit down and pick it to be sure, but this tab takes a few odd turns I wouldn't think to take. That's not to say they're wrong,...

    Re: Real Wear not Distressing

    Blackjack County Chains - Del McCoury Band

    Lately I've been fascinated with Ronnie McCoury's mandolin work on this song, and I've set my mind towards learning it. I'm a total beginner at this, and it's extremely slow going, but I'm making...

    From the description: "Ignore this. The listing has been taken down. Have a great day."

    Re: Atlanta Luthier

    I'd highly recommend getting in touch with Marty Jacobson, on the northwest side of the city, near Marietta. I took mine to him last week, and he did a superb job setting it up.

    Thank you for posting this, Kurt. I've been playing only about a month and a half, and it's encouraging to read the story of someone who can remember being there and has seen himself progress.
