    Re: Brought home a Buckeye!

    It's nice to know that there are other long time Buckeye owners here and now I'm even more excited to finally get the thing in my hands. I'd also like to see more photos of fidlrtynan's A style...

    Re: Brought home a Buckeye!

    Pete has been really fun to work with. I think he even mentioned you, fidlrtynan, in a text saying: "I have a guy from NY coming Monday to pick up the A model..."

    Pete's got a good sense of...
  3. Re: Article: Bill Monroe's Spiritual Daughter - Lauren Price Hews

    Michael,

    Thanks for the great article. I really appreciate the VIMEO and YouTube links. I've never been much of a bluegrasser and only recently became aware of her when she was one of two people...

    Re: Sierra Hull Transcriptions

    Thanks for sharing these. I'd love to work up a version of "Weighted Mind" and "Fallen Man."

    Re: New Apitius Club Jazz Mandolin acquisition…

    Besides The Buckeye f5 that I'm currently waiting to be delivered, The Club Jazz is the only other mandolin that I covet.

    Re: Satan is Real movie

    I've been meaning to read the book for awhile now but I did enjoy the Cocaine and Rhinestones podcast episode on The Louvin Brothers. You can listen to the episode or read the transcript here:...

    Re: Virzi "Tone destroyer"

    I'd call that a Virzi-ectomy.
  10. Re: whoa, i like the looks of this 2 point in the classifieds

    I'm pretty sure that one was in the store hanging in the corner just above the desk when I visited TMS a few weeks ago. I really wanted to give that one a go but I had pretty much played everything...

    "There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep...
  12. Re: Where to shop for a quality Mandolin in Southern California?

    It's kind of sad to think of how things have changed in SoCal over the years. Buffalo Brothers in Carlsbad used to be a premier destination for acoustic instruments and it's now closed. We've also...
  13. Re: Where to shop for a quality Mandolin in Southern California?

    I recently did the same and visited The Mandolin Store from San Diego. TMS had a wide neck Gibson that I was very tempted by. Actually, since I've recently ordered a Buckeye from Pete Hart, if...
  14. Re: A few neat exercises from Sierra Hull and Reverb

    Y'all,

    I'm getting over the flu this week and haven't had much time to practice this one. But, just thinking out loud (over lunch), since diminished chords repeat themselves every three frets...
  15. Re: Best all inclusive books on Jazz // Progressive Blues.

    Howdy,

    If you're tuned in "Chicago Tuning" then you should be in fourths like the first four strings on a guitar. Roy Smeck's Mel Bay Ukulele Method is great for getting those jazz chords under...
  16. Re: A few neat exercises from Sierra Hull and Reverb

    You're absolutely right, kinda, sorta, not really. You're right in that she is creating AN arpeggio by starting on each note of the major scale. She creates these arpeggios by counting up 1, 3 and...
  17. Re: Reversed mando tuning/strings for guitar player?

    To be honest, I've never really nailed alternate picking. I've flirted with rest strokes when trying to learn from Michael Horowitz's "Gypsy Picking" book but never really stuck with that either. ...
  18. Re: Reversed mando tuning/strings for guitar player?

    Well, I've been playing guitar for over 40 years but tuning in 5ths just seems to be the more intelligent way to tune an instrument. Heck, Robert Fripp likes it so much that he tunes his guitar in...

    Well, I haven't checked out their products in awhile now but I'm impressed that it features an acoustic soundport which is something I've never seen on any of their ukuleles. I also like that you...
  20. Re: The Fearless Flyers - Daddy, He Got a Cessna (feat. Chris Thi

    He's moving that way because he's the only one whose instrument is not constrained by a mic stand (Heck, even the bass drum is constrained by two concrete blocks to keep it from being kicked over)! ...

    Hi Joe,

    I used to live in Port Charlotte and there used to be an amazing open jam every Thursday night in Gilchrist Park on the banks of the beautiful Peace River in Punta Gorda. These used to...

    Re: CGDA to GDAE tuning

    That's very helpful. Thank you.

    The Pono OM was really fun and the flattop with x-bracing really made it sing. It changed my view on how I would employ an OM into my playing. I've got a "The...

    Re: CGDA to GDAE tuning

    Right! Good question. I recently tried out an Eastman Mandola and a Pono OM in the Terse body shape. I liked the Pono so much more than I thought I would and the Eastman Mandola just didn't sing...

    I have a similar but related question: Anyone tune a Mandola from CGDA to GDAE and what string set would be advised?
