    Same thing happened to me mailing a casein EML pick (same material as Red Bear). That material is definitely fragile.

    Re: I Hate Playing Chords

    I used to think that A barre chord was really difficult, and same with the thumb - I was never sure if it should be around the back of the neck like a classical guitarist (it shouldn't) or if I could...

    Re: D'Addario picks?

    Yeah, casein is very fragile, and sensitive to water/moisture. I don't think it would survive a trip through the washing machine. I trade picks on the classifieds quite a bit (mostly BC picks) and...

    Re: Finger joint fusion?

    Stem cell injections could be worth looking into. Experimental and costly, so it would be a gamble. I live in the world of uber athletes who perform well into their 80s (I'm not one of them, mind...
  7. Re: Hand position, and proper way to wear a strap?

    Yes, thanks for bringing this up. In that same Mike Marshall video (not the YouTube video but the DVD from which that is taken - which I have), Mike says that all these "rules" go out the window...

    Re: Strap Button Recommendations

    I got mine from Elderly Instruments. It was pretty inexpensive, but looks nice and is low profile. It's stainless steel or some kind of metal. They had a few different options. I installed myself...
  9. Re: Hand position, and proper way to wear a strap?

    Just a clarification, if you let go with both hands, then yes the peghead of the mandolin will drop - especially an F-style because they are heavier towards the head compared to an A-style. But you...
  10. Re: Hand position, and proper way to wear a strap?

    Here you go. This explains it all. When you're standing, you'll need to figure out something different to keep the mandolin in place, but you don't do it by holding the mandolin up with the left...
  11. Re: Hand position, and proper way to wear a strap?

    The mandolin neck should not be palmed. It should rest in the area right at the base of the first finger. Sort of the padded area of the hand right below the first finger. Also, you should not use...

    Re: Chris Thile's new pick

    Eric at EML picks makes a really nice casein pick if anyone is interested. I also like his resin picks (I actually like them better than casein).

    Re: D'Addrio picks?

    My personal opinion is that casein picks click more than Blue Chip material (i.e. I get more pick click with casein).

    They are also more brittle and will not last as long (they are not resistant...

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    Peghead Nation is awesome. They let you switch course up to twice a month, so I pay for one course and browse around a little. I have no experience with Artist Works, so can't compare with that. I...

    Re: Flying with a mando

    No need to de-tune for air travel, only for shipping. One thing I always do is make sure to book a window seat. Space in the overhead compartments isn't always guaranteed. If you don't have space...

    It's easy to have a plan B: be nice if a problem arises. Most of the time, if you're nice, the flight attendants will accommodate you (put your mandolin in a closet or something). Worst case...

    Re: Considering a Blue Chip Pick?

    For me, BC picks are just as much about the feel as they are about the tone. I don't think there tone is that much better than any other pick out there. There are some picks that I think have just...

    Re: Essential Mandolin Techniques.

    That's what I was saying as well. Pointing out that some players play that way, but the OP should not try to do it that way.
