    Re: Celtic lockdown!

    Breathtaking. Thanks for sharing. I have seen so much great music since early March. There is an upside to being kept at home. I have seen creativity at a whole different level. Lovely playing !
  12. Poll: Re: Poll for the Song A Week Social Group Week #522

    I voted for Lad O'Beirne's. It is really a challenging piece. I first tried it at O'Flaherty Festival in Mick Maloney's class. I never could get the tempo right. It is a lovely piece when played...

    Re: Pickups

    I have used the LR Baggs Radius along with their preamp and it is fine. One of my other mandolins has the K&K internal pickup. It also sounds very good. For what it is worth, I prefer the internal...

    Re: Grommets

    The leather shoestring works well too. I thread a piece around the strings near the tailpiece and it seemed to benefit the sound--might have all been in my head. I did the same thing with another...
