    Re: Beginner getting into Bluegrass

    One answer to the question of "where to start" would be with Mike Marshall. Here's a favorite video that shows him trading solos on a fiddle tune:

    Re: Tim O'Brien`

    +1 on "Real Time" w/ Tim & Darrell Scott. And "Fiddler's Green" is a great, great record.

    He is, indeed, a fabulous guitarist. There's a Planet Bluegrass podcast where they interview him, and...

    Very cool! Thanks for posting that.

    I think Chris used to play guitar occasionally in Nickel Creek's later years. And if you go very far back (like when he was 10), he *was* the guitarist in...

    Re: Bitteroot A, Gibson A-9, Collings MT

    I would say go for either the Weber or the Collings. Possible edge to the Collings on resale value, but they're really pretty comparable.

    Since you're not able to play them in advance I'll...

    Can't recommend Andrew Mowry highly enough! I love the A5 he built for me, and he's a first class guy to deal with. He keeps you up-to-date on the build process with great "in progress" pictures,...

    Starting left-handed kids on the mando

    Hi all,

    Up to now, my kids (6 and 3) have usually just come up to me while I'm practicing and asked to "play", which means madly strumming with the pick while Dad holds the mando and frantically...

    Re: My rant about the Gibson "A" models

    I think it's largely because there are so many of them. The mandolin was at the peak of its popularity in the teens, and Gibson was cranking them out. That, coupled with the fact that they're quite...
