    Re: Bourbon and bluegrass

    Instead of starting a new thread (that I was going to title 'Bourbon and Bluegrass'), I figured I'd revive this old one. I'd like to plan a trip in October to visit some of the distilleries on the...

    Re: “Banjo killer”? Wishful thinking?

    I think you're right Doug. When you face the cold hard truth, a banjo-killing mandolin is just wishful thinking. There are loud mandolins of course, when compared to other mandolins. And there are...

    David... I always appreciate your thoughtful posts and of course, you are correct here as usual. You'll have to admit though that your reply sounds a bit like something Sheldon (Big Bang Theory)...

    Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    Funny how the responses thus far seem to be suggesting that 'If not TABS, the logical alternative would be notation'.

    Re: Kentucky KM1050 Or KM1500

    Good advice but it looks like that's not going to be possible.

    Just a little bit of info that might help with your decision. The KM-1500 from that era likely will have a pretty slim neck profile...

    Re: Philphool, Phil Goodson, passes :(

    Sad news. Never met him in person but feel I knew him pretty well through interactions here. A classy guy who will be missed.

    Don't beat yourself up over this 'Timing Issue' Bunny. Getting into the singer's head is a tall order. Timing that comes naturally to family members who have heard and sung a song a certain way for...

    Re: Happy ending for stolen mandolin

    So Timothy... I know you and Bill H. are pals and neighbors (of a sort), but I'm missing something. Are you saying you borrowed the guitar from Bill and it was stolen while in your care?

    Yes..."a jarring swing and a miss"; a glaring lack of logic.

    Re: Can you teach musicality?

    I do find comfort there (western tonality and aesthetic). Maybe not ITM so much, but with Bluegrass, old C&W and early R&R. I don't see why or how one needs to stretch beyond that realm in order to...

    Re: New Vessel Loar A5 tribute

    I think Bernie asks a couple of perfectly legitimate questions. And asks them in a polite and respectful tone. No accusations... just questions.

    I'm a Duff man Shaun, but I have to say... that Kimble f5 sounds like a real killer.

    I was pretty much with you untill the last part of that sentence... "probably more than the "going rates!""
