    Re: Help - Monroe's Kentucky Mandolin

    Wow! I really appreciate that. Yeah, it's quite different from what he's teaching. I'll try to work through these tabs this week. I usually work by ear, but this gives me a great foundation.

    Help - Monroe's Kentucky Mandolin

    Anybody have a link to a good video lesson for this song? Or have you recorded one?

    Re: Lonesome Moonlight Waltz

    Strings and Julin do a really nice, sort of long, rather simple version of this tune that I used to learn the basics.

    That's a real beauty, Marty. Hate to hear it might be the last of its kind, but I'm glad it sounds like you've got some really interesting projects on deck.

    Re: Looking for mandolin fret repair in Atlanta

    He's saying Marty is "in Marietta if I recall correctly".

    Barry Kratzer, though, is near Savannah.

    New A's and E's frequently sound muted to my ears, for what it's worth.

    Re: Dirty old town tab

    I taught myself this song, on a whim, last week. I'll have to sit down and pick it to be sure, but this tab takes a few odd turns I wouldn't think to take. That's not to say they're wrong,...

    I'd highly recommend getting in touch with Marty Jacobson, on the northwest side of the city, near Marietta. I took mine to him last week, and he did a superb job setting it up.
