    What difference would it make to me what kind of chords other people play? I can't see where it matters.

    Re: Jimmy Capps

    Yes, Jimmy was great- I loved watching him on Larry's Country Diner where he played "The Sheriff" and gave such great backing to performers on the show. He had a long and productive career. There was...

    Re: Ordering strings--any luck recently?

    As always I chime in about Mapes strings in Tennessee where they actually MAKE the wire for the strings.

    Re: Thinking of buying a second mandolin

    Yes. I have three:

    1) play what you have until you can afford something better, not something different. A lot of us spun our wheels buying a number of equivalent mandolins, perhaps losing...

    Yeah ….. A set up is all you really need . Save any money spent on upgrading the hardware toward an instrument upgrade. The KM 150 is a good starter instrument. Figure on maybe replacing it in a year...
