  1. Re: Article: The 1978 Bob Givens Interview from The Guitars Frien

    Thanks Scott for the interesting articles. The Guitars Friend read was particularly a blast from my past, since I took guitar lessons at Music, Strings, and Things in Birmingham, MI. I later moved...

    Re: Campanella Mandolin

    Congrats! Those Campanellas are lovely. Would you be the same Yooper who recently sold your Brentrup?

    Re: Mandolin or Octave Mandolin

    Mandolin would be a better fit. Whether you choose a flat top or an arch top octave mandolin, it’s voicing is similar to guitar and would be lost in the mix. You might want to consider a resonator...

    Re: Vulfpeck - Thile appearance

    That was insane! And watching Chris dance off the stage afterwards with his Loar made me hold my breath. What if he whacked it or dropped it?!
  5. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    I like the leisurely pace. It reminds me of listening to Detroit baseball announcer Ernie Harwell calling the play by play in his relaxed southern drawl during my youth. Almost like a mantra that...

    Different strokes... I really enjoyed the jazz documentary.

    Not to mention his stellar mandolin chops.

    Re: Station Inn advice...Mike Compton

    Yes, definitely get there early, since you do have to stand in line. It also improves your chances of a decent parking space. We parked early in their lot, walked to dinner, and then came back and...

    Re: Summer NAMM 2019 Report

    If you haven’t played one multidon, I recommend trying one first. I waited for months for an Eastman octave but ended up returning it after being disappointed.

    Re: In Praise of Michael Heiden

    Beautiful! Is that the 2017 build listed for sale on his web site? What’s the scale length on it? Enjoy!
  16. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I think you hit the nail on the head. Collaboration = licensing fees. I think this was Gibson's MO all along.

    Re: Carbon Fiber Mandolin

    I’d be surprised if you could make a quality CF mandolin at that price point, but I’d love to be proven wrong. Count me in on an A-style. Tone, volume, and playability are paramount.

    Re: Telluride Streaming Starts June 20

    It wouldn't be Summer Solstice without the Telluride BG Festival. Can't believe it's been 36 years since I last attended! Time flies too quickly. So happy to see Sam there too after all these years...

    Re: Should I Buy an OM

    One thing to consider if there is more than one guitar at a session, the OM occupies a similar niche sonically, so it may be overkill. On the other hand, you can add color if you play counter melody,...

    Re: Mandolin Try-out Etiquette

    And if they do offer up an instrument to play, handle it with kid gloves, keep your belt buckle covered, etc. I like to tell the owner how careful I’ll be.
