    Re: 2019 Tune-A-Week Project

    Week 25 for the Tune A Week Project - a lovely four part jig called "Kit O'Mahoney's", but I only played it once through because I wasn't quite confident of getting through all four parts again...
  11. Re: Stolen - Weber Fern A-style - Oakland, CA

    Sorry to hear this - break-ins suck! If you're not already doing so, make sure to post this in the classifieds as well under the "Lost and Stolen instruments" section. If the thieves don't really...

    Re: 2019 Tune-A-Week Project

    Re: Storage: Case vs Hanging on the Wall

    I've been keeping my instruments in their cases since I was 11 years old (except for my drum kit!) and I average a couple of hours a day playing - only thing that interferes with that is extreme...
  17. Re: How did you feel about your new build Mando?

    Cheers John - so far been able to keep the pace up - may get a bit more challenging at the end of June as there's a slight chance that I'll be heading home to Ireland for a few weeks. Won't have the...
