    Re: NMD: Northfield Big Mon

    Awesome Chris, congrats!! I have been impressed with every Northfield I've played so far and I'm sure yours is just killer.
    Let's hear it sometime!
  2. Re: Don Stiernberg Quartet Live Online Concert Friday August 14th

    Looking forward to it!

    I'd request you to sing Witchcraft but I reckon if you aren't singing you can still pick it!
    Topsy would be a good one too!

    Thanks Donnie!

    Re: Chinese made mandolins (Northfield?)

    All I will add from personal experience is talk to Adrian or Derek at Northfield sometime and your concerns will be eased.
    I spent hours at Swannanoa last year with Adrian and came away with a...

    Re: Better tone with light strings?

    I've definitely got too heavy of a picking hand for light strings in a jam setting. On my Flatbush mando which is an awesome one but a backup mostly, I put lights on it when my girlfriend was trying...

    Re: New Octave Mandolin Day

    that looks great! Custom with maple I guess? All of them I have seen in the flat top are walnut back and sides. Love mine!

    Re: No motivation

    I've done one 3 person jam and that's it since March.
    I have pretty much lost interest in trying to do any gigs or the jams here even if they could be outdoors. They just aren't exciting me and...
  8. Re: When did you realize mandolin was your primary instrument?

    I started on guitar at age 16 in 2001. When I went to college, a friend had a cheapo mandolin and let me borrow it for the weekend. I was hooked right away!
    I still play some guitar but from that...
  9. Re: Mandolin Orange live streamed performance yesterday

    It was a great show, really well done video and sound. They were in Asheville at Echo Mountain recording studio. I too was a little disappointed not to see the Loar, but also surprised how much I...

    Re: Heads up for you Mandolinists with Cats

    Thanks for the warning. I do have tiger lillies outside the front walkway area, but I don't have a cat.
    Probably easier to just keep the flowers and not risk it by getting one. :cool:
  13. Re: How did the "curl" on the mandolin body evolve?

    I like F style mandolins, but I don't go around talking trash about how "Silly" of a "bad taste" in design the A style is, because for some people it is exactly what they want. It's OK to have a...

  15. Re: Anybody going/been to Alan Bibey Mandolin Camp?

    Like AlanN, I have been to every year of AB Camp so far.
    This year he's keeping all the instructors but severely limiting the attendees to the point that each class will have probably 5 or 6...

    Re: jams with friends during covid

    I've gotten together with my 2 band mates once in an outdoor and spacious setting. It was ok. Now NC has a mask requirement for public places.

    Re: Mike Marshall The Movie

    :)) there you go!
    I'd watch it, and given Netlfix's most recent movies, it probably isn't too far fetched of a pitch.

    Ronnie McCoury could play Dawg, he really had the look going with his...

    Interesting. When I talked to Tony about getting one for my Eastman mandola he seemed to think it wouldn't work too well.

    Re: Four Finger Chop Chords and the Pain!

    You can honestly get 90+% of the sound of a 4 finger G chop by just using the two low strings and being careful not to hit the high strings.
    If you play it with your second and third finger then you...
