    Re: I need a mandolin stand for stage use.

    I'm playing mandolin, zouk, electric guitar, and dobro in my home band. Once in a while I'll have an acoustic strung up in Nashville tuning as well. For gigs where we don't have a tech or two to swap...

    the good ol' Boss TU-3 is solid, reliable, accurate, and cheap on the used market.

    Re: Ashokan Farewell Tabs anyone?

    copyright only applies to performance for profit. Either for the benefit of the venue's or the performer's wallet. A front porch for fun doesn't ping the meter.
