    Re: Still cant play a break!

    Have you taken a look at this video? It was made for the Cafe's profile of Michael Daves who teaches Bluegrass Vocals for ArtistWorks, but it's a great guide to building a bluegrass mandolin solo.

    Re: Major chord arpeggios

    "More notes is better than fewer notes" - Excuse me if I'm reading you wrong, but that seems to be the gist of your thinking, and I couldn't disagree more. Following that logic, why learn any...

    Re: My band asked me to stop playing guitar

    Some of my early bands asked me to stop playing guitar. And I didn't even have any other instruments then.

    Re: Shelter-in-place (NMC)

    When I lived on a farm in Arkansas many years ago (and before we got full indoor plumbing), Montgomery Wards furnished our toilet paper. (Yes, I'm old.)

    This brings to mind the fire we had in the...

    Re: Shelter-in-place (NMC)

    If this quarantine thing lasts too much longer, David might be able to find a desperate mandolin player who will trade his F-5 for some of that TP stash.

    Re: Live From Home

    Really, really nice. Once again, this one was a judgement call, as the video was not produced as a contribution to the 'live from home' genre, but just listen to that guitar!

    Re: ToneGuard Question

    I think the point the OP made is that perhaps in some cases there is some other effect of using the ToneGard, perhaps linked to pressure on the ridges of the instrument. I have not noticed this, and...
  18. Re: Of your favorite instruments that qualify for this site...

    Well to balance it out, my newphew, when he was pretty young, asked me very earnestly: "Uncle Jeff, why do you play the mandolin? Isn't that something musicians do?"
  19. Re: Why are good mandolins more expensive than good guitars?

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, if you can't tell the difference between a premium mandolin and an inexpensive mandolin consider yourself lucky.
  20. Re: Sunday picking sessions at my house are keeping me alive...

    The thing is, I'm a beginner mando player - at best. I'm whatever comes before that. So to be picking with friends is awesome in terms of just not caring if I hit a bum note. It's a progress...

    I can certainly endorse your thinking. Regular music sessions at home and in other venues have been a huge benefit to me following the very unexpected death of my wife just over a year ago. Family...

    Re: What's taking you so long in there?

    My father, growing up a military brat in the 60s, was about as straight-arrow a teenager as you could imagine.
