    Re: What do you do when you're Just. Not. Feeling it?

    Agree totally with this. What I have found is similar. I go back to a tune I really like but haven't played in awhile. Breeze through it....then slowly take it back apart and try to make every...

    Re: CGDA tuning on Mandolin?

    I went back into my notes.....I wound up using the D'Daddario J72 mandola set in the end. 14/23/36/49. The pressures were 21#/24#/24#/22# per string respectively (I do not recollect which...

    Ok...where do you put the obvious indicators that it is a copy? Why the fake label with Loar's signature....for what reason is that? Yes, you are a craftsman and I respect that aspect and believe...
  4. Re: What is Today the best Tenor guitar between 500$ => under 100

    Dang....I REALLY did not need to see that. I had asked Mule if they would consider it a couple years ago. They said no so I let it go. Until now. Jeeeez.

  7. Re: Should I consider a very early B.R.W. (Ben Wilcox)?

    For anything over 500 (regardless of maker) my take would be: No trial period.....NO sale. That would be a deal breaker.

  9. Re: What if I removed the nitro finish from the sides of my mando

    Myself....I'd just leave it alone and let it be. Especially if I was the original owner (that is way cool all by itself!). And I'd be darn proud of it. YMMV.

    Take a look at the Kala Tenor Guitar. Dirt cheap but well made. Sometimes their setup is iffy (I have two and a friend bought another one. One of mine had a horrible setup but was a great learning...

    Re: Best middle or lower-priced tenor guitar?

    Kala Tenors are a really good value. Sound pretty decent. I like mine but did have to work on the setup a bit.

    Re: Memorizing Chords and Progressions
