    Wheel Hoss - Bill Monroe

    This is my favorite bluegrass tune to play. I like slowing it down a little to really make it groove.

    Cherokee Lady - Bobby Osborne

    Here's my stab at Cherokee Lady by the great Bobby Osborne. It's twice through - the melody, which has some variation, then a second pass, which seems worked out and is way fun to play. Pardon the...
  5. Appendectomy: Trust Your Gut (some mandolin content)

    Title says it. Went to the ER yesterday and had my appendix swiftly removed. Symptoms started Tuesday and never got that bad, to be honest. Iím glad I trusted my gut, despite my hesitation to visit a...

    Re: The virus, the economy, mandolins and you

    A friend of my wife shared this CS Lewis quote (Circa 1948) with her a little while ago and I think it applies well here:

    In one way we think a great deal too much of the atomic bomb. “How are we...

    I didn't think I would be able to still sing with a tracheostomy in my throat. With a Passy Muir Speaking Valve I am able to sing a bit. I did a cover of a folk gospel tune this morning with my...

    Re: Gibson Post Mortem

    It should be noted that since the Gibson F5 was introduced in 1922 it has always been a "custom" ordered model. A dealer would have to order one based on someone putting a deposit down at the...

    Re: Gibson Post Mortem

    Not all of us -- even long-time Cafe members who, as they say, have "many years of absence" from this forum -- are as au courant with the current mandolin market, and G's role in it, as those who go...

  18. Re: Amateurish string change execution - can I keep, or is it rui

    Does it hold pitch?
    If it does, don’t worry about it and do better next time, if it slips like deer guts on a door knob, make adjustments.

    Re: A request of builders

    My feeling is that if a builder charges $2000 + for a new instrument, it should not be shipped with a lousy fret job and a poor set-up. But I've seen both on instruments that cost a lot more, many...
