    Re: Chris Thile does Bill Monroe

    C'mon now. That break by Bill in the first video is blazing fast and as full of notes as Chris' version...it's no different. If Compton played it like that it'd be hailed as genius rather than the...

    To paraphrase Wake Frankfield: I been whoopin' these strings like a mule for a week or so. Descriptions of tone and sound are always so difficult due to the specifics of each situation: tonewoods,...

    Re: D'Addario - Seeking Mandolin Beta Testers

    George I agree. I've had my set on for a few days and I like them more than I expected but the G sounds less substantial compared to the others. Perhaps not as cutting as PB...almost like the Bush...
