    Re: melody / hot licks

    It never "should" anything. Listening to music is not an act of reasoning.

    Re: Suits in Bluegrass

    I don't like to wear suits and I loathe ties. I don't go to concerts expecting a costume party on stage, just good music and good interaction with the audience. If people want to wear suits, that's...

    I can see how those who don't like or use Blue Chips could easily get tired of seeing these long threads arise on a regular basis. I just waded through these last 4 pages and read pretty much what I...

    Re: Capo conspiracy?

    No. No. CeeCee actually said, "I've repeatedly noted that mandolin players very rarely use a capo. I could come up with any number [of] silly theories, but could it come down to 'Capos? We don'...

    Re: "Opening-up", Myth or Fact?

    It should sound good out of the box, and if it doesn't, it's not a good mandolin. And one should never buy a poor sounding mandolin in the hopes that it will sound good later, of course. But even...
