    Re: NMC, a great experience today

    Music stores are often still mom-and-pop businesses. In my experience, they're run by some of the greatest people on the planet.

    Re: Professional Mando Names

    I had friends—both gone now—that named many objects in their home. The refrigerator was Francine, the kitchen wastebasket Carl, and the wide two-drawer filing cabinet answered to Gomez.

    Re: is an arm rest a benefit to technique ?

    I like using one and found that it did help with my right hand position. YMMV. Also, my first instrument had pretty sharp edges and the armrest kept the dents in my forearm down.

    Re: Wedding music

    Sounds like it will be a truly fun wedding!

    Some of the pieces from Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks or Water Music would be worth a look and listen..

    Thanks for the PDF—the article didn't make the Rocky Mountain edition of the print edition of today's paper.

    Re: Point of Diminishing Returns

    Just stop. If you have been playing for only a week, and are not coming to mandolin from guitar, violin, or another stringed instrument, 45 minutes to an hour is a long time. The hands and the mind...

  15. Re: Thoughts on starter fiddles/transitioning to fiddle

    The curve of the bridge should echo the curve of the fingerboard, just like on a mandolin. Flattening the curve of the bridge may make some things easier but it will complicate others.

    Insurance claims get complicated. For several years I was the librarian for one of the orchestras I play with. We used rented parts for much of the music we played. Replacement cost for a score and...

    Re: Classical Mandolin

    Looks like an LM-520 is an F5 type. Although the Fs are beloved by bluegrassers, Gibson originally designed them for classical players. You'll be just fine. You may have to experiment a bit to find...

    If you happened to know a dendrochronologist he or she could answer all these questions. Kind of a niche field, though.

    Re: Rubner tuners are back
