  1. Re: Jacobson Nautilus Mandolin #39 - Ziricote and Birdseye

    Beautiful work, Marty!

    Sound fantastic as well!

    Glad to see that you are still building in some capacity.
  2. Re: Fiddle tunes for viola or mandola - free collection

    I'm sure this will help. While we are adamant that we teach the tunes by ear, as we only have one day per week with them, and not every kid comes every week, we do provide sheet music as a back up. ...
  3. Re: Fiddle tunes for viola or mandola - free collection

    Ralph,

    Thanks so much for this! I'm from the metro Atlanta area and serve as a "consultant" to a fiddle group attached to a large high school orchestra. Once a week we have 30 or so...

    Re: New to me AL Smart F5

    Wow!! I'm simply stunned with the clarity, volume and tone of that instrument.

    Would have to be in the top 3 mandolins I've heard, and I've heard a bunch!

    Question; are you hearing all of that...

    Re: Fiddle Tunes with History?

    I can't remember where I heard it on a recording (but I know I did!) when an Old Timer was interviewed about the origins of "Bonaparte Crossing the Rockies." When pressed with the information that...

    Trey,

    Great Job! I'm more than impressed with your playing and your musicality!

    Sorry I missed this. Let me know the next time you are in Atlanta and I'd be happy to come out and support.

    Re: MAS or not

    My only additional advice is to plan a two day trip. The first day you will be overwhelmed with the different variety and different variables inherent in each instrument. The best decision you can...
  8. Re: New mando. Still trying to adapt. Thoughts welcome.

    Give it a while.

    1) You will adapt. When you have more time on your new one than the old one it will feel more comfortable to you.

    2) Also, give the mandolin time to open up. Iíve been...

    Re: Martin Style 20 Interest

    I've got one that I think is the 2-15; oval hole, fully carved arch top without the points. Should play like the style 20. I think it's a lovely little mandolin, and has more refinement and better...

    Re: Glass mandolin syndrome

    My favorite story was when some knucklehead was practicing with a beautifully unmarked mandolin. After an hour or so of concentrated practice he got up and stretched his arms out over his head with...

    Steve,
    I've been a follower of your work for some time, and am amazed by the wide range of styles you make and the quality with which you make each one.

    Seeing the 2015 date on the original post...

    Re: Mandolin Rag - Doc Roberts

    Scott,

    Thanks for sharing! I've got these recordings somewhere, I need to track them down. As I play (at!) both fiddle and mandolin, I love finding Old Time mandolin tunes that aren't just...

  17. Re: Red Diamond Feature in latest issue of Fretboard Journal

    I'm already believing it's too late to become a "mediocre at best" mandolin player! Let's not compound the problem with the "5 4th's and a third" fretboard! (or something like that - again, see...

    Just stirring the pot, but for us mando-geeks that don't play (identify with, have an affinity for, or can even tune) a guitar, could there be any possible way for the publisher to separate the...

    Re: The Brentrup Mandolin Registry

    Hmm...talked to Jon in November, and that was his range. I'm a few years away, so today's price isn't that relevant.

    I can always work a few more years!

  25. Re: A piece I wrote that uses a lot of glissandro: "An Odd Breeze

    Yes!

    Love the music!

    It's cool to hear when this instrument can do something other than chop a bluegrass G chord.

    Hope this musical journey takes you far!
