    Re: Finding Parts for Banjolin

    I've bought mandolin banjo bridges from Elderly. They are not repros, but they did a great job. And I'm another vote for Smakula.

  7. Re: American flat top/back mandolin - for Italian style playing

    Re: Top 5 Sam Bush tracks

    I don’t know if it’s still available anywhere, but he did an album when he was a teenager with Alan Munde on banjo called Poor Richard’s Almanac. The quality is funky but his picking (even back then)...

    Thanks David. I've been puzzling over this as I've been learning to read Italian mandolin music. For example, a whole note would always be tremolo unless marked as "senza trem"? Or a quarter note...
