    Re: Gibson F4?

    I wish I could stumble on a deal like that, but people are too educated now. I would love to have an oval hole and can only dream about one like that.

    Re: What Do You Want To Be Played At Your Funeral?

    I would have to say Some Day by Lonesome Highway, followed by By the Mark by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. I am sure I could come up with a few more if I really thought about it, but my wife...

    Re: Do instructors over-emphasize fiddle tunes?

    Personally (and I haven't read all the posts - just too much reading) I don't get much from just learning fiddle tunes from a book other than the joy of hearing myself play the tune. Even when the...

    Re: What was your first mandolin?

    My first mandolin was an Epiphone MM30. I still have it, and honestly I would love to have a custom mandolin build with the same next width, fret size and string spacing as my MM30. The MM30 plays...
