    Hi Drew, We saw them live in SLO, CA and wow, what a wonderful concert. I was spellbound throughout, though I wish like heck they would play Wrecking Ball, which is among my favorites of theirs. ...

    Re: Education

    Re: post a video of yourself

    I played it on my Martin 000-28, though I wrote it on my Collings MT. This is a rough cut of my song, "Vader Tavern." This is a true story. (Note: my Parkinson's Plus Syndrome has affected my...

    Re: Mandolin Orange on today Show

    I think of Mandolin Orange's songs as who they are as songwriters and appreciate the depth of their lyrics. True, their musicianship is exceptional, as is the production quality whether live or in...

    Re: Who has thin bluechips?

    Re: Andrew Marlin's Pick

    Meanwhile, I bought a Blue Chip SR 60, as I have a CT 55 and enjoy that one. I got the round bevel this time to avoid any hang ups on strings when playing tremolo. Good release so far. Haven't...

    Re: Andrew Marlin's Pick

    At 33:13, as you indicated, that pick does look fairly small. Going up the neck is definitely a technique he uses, also. Interesting! Thanks for the vids.

    Re: Andrew Marlin's Pick
