    Re: Autumn Leaves - Mandolin Chord Melody [Tab]

    I think it was Adderley's first album as a leader. Miles did not hold back anything, and with along Sam Jones et al, they made a great record. It's on a lot of must-have jazz record lists, including...

    Re: New Vessel Loar A5 tribute

    I have the Kentucky model that was loosely based on the Griffith. I don't know, but doubt that they paid a lot of attention to the thickness measurements. Anyway, I like it enough that I'm having...
  3. Re: Recommendations for a quality but affordable mandolin

    I just went to check prices on new Kentucky KMs and they have nearly doubled. They seem to have discontinued the KM900.

    Re: The Don Stiernberg Quartet - New Release

    Maybe he will, but I can tell you that both the mandolins and guitars used are listed on the CD jacket. And on which tracks.

    I'm keeping my copy in the car right now, so don't have it in front of...

    Re: Dylan on bluegrass in the New York Times

    Dylan is forever and ever a poet. When asked if he would consider recording a bluegrass album, by someone who if they had anything more than a vague idea of what bluegrass is would not have asked the...

    Re: Norman Blake Tunes

    Hey! Quit screwing around and finish my mandolin! Wow, puts it down in the chair and it's still ringing.

    Nice playing, mandolin sounds great, and I need to learn 3rd Street Gypsy Rag.

  12. Re: An (incomplete) list of recorded black mandolinists

    Wow, what discography! And we barely know of him. There must be hundreds of string band and country blues players who never got near a recorder, much less a studio.

  14. Re: Favorite Electric Mandolin Albums or Artists?

    Does Johnny Gimble play some electric mandolin/mandola on the early Asleep at the Wheel records?

  15. Re: Favorite Electric Mandolin Albums or Artists?

    Niles Hokkanen is on this one, probably some others as well. Itís a pretty dense recording but you can hear him.

    Re: Are All Lloyd Loars Dropping In Price?

    Do the Loar F5s represent a step-change in mandolin building? That's what the Cremona violin makers such as Stradivari, Amati, Guarneri did. Substantially all violin family instruments, except for...

    Re: Changed back to nickel-silver frets

    Iím not sure that itís really that simple. On both the fretted and fretless fingerboard there are lengths of string that interact with the stopping surface. The length is much shorter on the fretted...

    Re: 10 Essential Jazz Guitar Chord Rhythms

    “Featherlight” is not a word I would use to describe Freddy Green’s guitar, but I agree you can not do that sound on electric, because you can’t replicate the quick decay. The other examples are good...

    I'm sure that's correct.

    As for the sax players, no they can't even pick the material the saxophone is made from in a double blind test. Nevertheless, many claim they can hear the difference in...

    Re: Changed back to nickel-silver frets

    If string material makes a tonal difference, and I don't think anyone would argue, it doesn't seem like much of a stretch that fret material would also. I have no idea, but it would probably be...
