    Re: Your Thoughts On D'Addario XT Strings

    Here's a sample of older XT's. Not the best rendition but you get the idea. More like six weeks now.

    Re: Your Thoughts On D'Addario XT Strings

  4. Re: Land's End. Tim O'Brien cover with free notation

    John's a pro. Got to pick with him a little at the Bywater before it closed. He's a fine fiddler as well.
  5. Re: anyone change their plain steel high strings faster than wrap

    I do that with D'addario Nickle Bronze because the G and D strings keep that woof for a long time but the treble side wear out like usual.

  15. Re: Tag at the end of lines in Mansion for me

    Ok Liam I just listened to this again. It sounds like he is playing arpeggios inside of the three finger chop chord. Are you familiar with that? It's in 3/4 time in the key of G. Start with the G...
