    Re: Mandolin part in Iris by Goo Goo Dolls

    Ran across this excellent in-depth interview with session guitarist Tim Pierce, who played the mandolin part on "Iris", about his involvement with the song. He discusses the mandolin part, shows how...

    Re: Anthony Hannigan

    I took up the mandolin around 2007, and like some of you, Anthony's videos and MusicMoose.org were vital resources for me as I was learning to find my way with the instrument. Grateful to him, and...

    Latest update from Andy doesn't look promising. Really gutted for him. Have attached most recent photos of the missing instruments to this post.

    Two of Andy's Sobell instruments went missing a week ago while travelling from Dublin to Denmark for a festival - a mandola and a guitar-bouzouki. They're still missing.

    See several news articles...

    Re: 1987 Flatiron Artist A5 (Mint)

    It's a pretty boring story and a bit of downer, but what the heck. Summer of 2013 roadtrip that was to take me to Telluride bluegrass festival, and then on to northern CA for High Sierra music...

    One of the biggest mistakes I ever made was running over my '85 A5-1 with a Toyota minivan. True story.

    Re: Sliding into Notes

    Mike Seeger could pull off some of the "slitheriest" slides around, especially when it comes to double stops. Check out the clip beginning at 30:33 in the documentary "Homemade American Music" (there...

    Re: Obscure Tony Rice tabs. No mando content.

    Re: Hope this never happens again

    About 10 years ago I hitch-hiked through Jackson, WY on my way to volunteer with a buffalo advocacy group headquartered near Yellowstone. Had my Kentucky KM180S with me, my first mandolin. I stopped...

  14. Re: watch the smooth glide like action of Mike Comptons fingers

    Mike Seeger was another one of those folks who could get around on a mandolin as if the strings were buttered. This entire film ("Homemade American Music") from 1980 is a treasure, but take a look at...

    The black rubber grommets that you can sometimes find at the hardware store are I believe the same ones that are also used in tattoo machines (they keep the needle firmly secured to the tattoo gun's...

    Re: Orrin Star Passes

    An old band I was in used to cover Orrin's jig "The Partners", and if I recall correctly, that was a result of Orrin posting on the forum about this new composition back in 2011. I was drawn to it...
  17. Re: Stroboclip HD prefers harmonic to fundamental problem

    A word of caution about the original Stroboclip -- there's a plastic flange on the clamp/swivel assembly that's easily prone to snapping off, at which point the clamp no longer is able to be secured...
