    I love this stuff!
  2. Re: Help me find a mando for my 10 yr old daughter

    Re: Dropped mandolin

    I’m fairly confident that things have been “done a mischief” and your luthier will tell you it’s just a mild issue!
    Don’t worry, things could be worse.

    Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    The hardest instrument would be the one you have not started yet!
    I never felt like the mandolin was “hard” because I really fell in love with it, the desire was a greater driving force than...

    Re: Harmony H35 Mandolin Chicago

    A buddy of mine decided he felt like he wanted to corner the market on those old black top Harmony dreadnoughts, for the life of me I cannot understand why. They were dogs back then, and time has not...

    I’m glad the suspense is over! Enjoy it Tom!
  15. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    There’s a discussion of that show here somewhere. Mike is better at linking that than anyone.
    Also, I agree with the premise that music is in a constant state of flux, and I stand by my stand by ...

    Re: '17 A-1 Bridge

    Is the bridge deteriorating? If not, why worry? If it is failing, then an accurate replacement would be the clear choice, for me.
    Does that help? Probably not, but, I got a dialog started!
  19. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Opinions about subject matter, sure, there are always more “versions of the truth” to be told. As far as style is concerned, I think it’s always going to be a bone of contention for someone.

  20. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    I don’t understand the need to gripe about what has become Ken Burns signature style.
    It’s a freaking 16 hour series, what is it about the leisurely, well researched, well supported listenable pace...

    Re: Big Family: The Story of Bluegrass Music

    Sadly Clarence is undermentioned all the time!

    Let’s see if the esteemed Mr. Burns does a better job noting Clarence’s impact.
  24. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    I’m in total agreement Mike,
    I knew a lot but seems my education was lacking some as well!
  25. Re: How do you test the qualities you're looking for in a Mandoli

    That’s exactly how I feel too Tom,
    You can get an idea if a few things but, until you “baptize it by fire” in a band (or whatever situation you will most play in) situation you can’t really evaluate...
