    Re: old timey challenge

    Here's a cut from an old album of mine. The album is definitely a creation of the recording studio. All the fiddle tunes therein were deconstructed to some extent, with arrangements strongly...

    Re: Ookpik Waltz- Chris Thile

    Re: Help! Drowned out by fiddles!

    It's not clear to me if the OP wants to hear himself with greater clarity, or if he wants his audience to hear him better. These are not the same issues. If you play an F hole instrument, and you are...

    Re: Case for Martin A mandolin

    I bought a two point mandolin that didn't quite fit any case I tried. The instrument was special. And it was a keeper. So, taking a chance, I ordered a custom-built case from Ameritage. Basically,...

    Re: Valley Forge arrangement?

    This tune is always an explosive treat when played as a trio of mandolin, guitar, and fiddle. With TWO fiddles playing harmonically, plus walking guitar, and mandolin, it is out of this world. Love...
  12. Re: Quality tuners for F style - opinions welcome

    I've tried them all. My two current mandolins have grandtune schallers and rubners. I prefer the ebony rubners.. Gorgeous looking and easier to keep in tune. The rest of the high end bunch are...

    One idea. There are so many tunes to learn in the OT galaxy, that I have never found the public forums to have much gravitational force. Instead, I have developed a more private correspondence with...

    Re: Runaway/Texas fiddle tune set

    Aah Winderslide. That was so much fun pairing a mandolin with a tuba.
