    Re: Punch Brothers "Hell on Church Street"

    Right there with you. I'm a huge Punch Brother fan and love all their albums and have listened to them a ton of times. But this Gold Rush is.....just not enjoyable to me.
    I like all the more...
  2. Re: Tony Rice 'I've Waited As Long As I Can' on the mandolin

    This is so cool, Jake! I've been wanting to try and transcribe some Tony solos to see how they work on the mandolin so this will give me a nice kick in the pants trying to learn this one. That Nugget...

    Re: J.D. Crowe passes

    What a legend he was. RIP J.D. and hope Tony and you are playing some old New South or Bluegrass Album Band repertoire together. Crazy to think it was almost exactly a year ago (one day off) that...

    Re: Kimble neck - forearm pain

    I played a Collings MT for many years and just recently got a Northfield A5 special and had the same exact thing happen to me. The Northfield neck is certainly thicker, but not uncomfortable. But...

    I guess he wasn't playing it that much before since the tuners didn't work too good (what he said in the video above). I wonder if Gilchrist made that one with the super hard maple like he made his...

    Oh yeah, I smile every time I hear that lick that Dominick, plays! It's "The Girl I Left Behind Me."
  8. Re: New Bela Fleck Album out - My Bluegrass Heart

    You forgot Dominick Leslie, who plays on 5 of the 19 tracks. He has one of my favorite mandolin breaks on the album (Baptist Pumpkin Farm) and plays on Round Rock on the album.

    Man, this album is...
  9. Re: Mandolin Tasting: Gibsons, Buckeye, Duff, Northfiled

    Probably listened to this with my Airpods at least 10 times. #1 is definitely my favorite and I think it's the Loar, maybe #2 is the Fern? Really like #6, too, and think that that might be the Big...

    Re: Left hand thumb soreness

    Thanks Glassweb and CarlM. My new Northfield A5 special is well setup with a nice low action and is very easy to fret so that's not the issue. I think it really does have to do with: 1) the newer,...

    Re: Left hand thumb soreness

    Real great advice, Matt! I think since the neck profile on my new mando is more of a soft V than the very pronounced V on my Collings i was pressing harder on my thumb. Will try these suggestions for...

    Re: Left hand thumb soreness

    How else does one hold a mandolin neck? Always hold it with my thumb and right below the first finger in general. Never "palm" the neck.

    Re: Left hand thumb soreness

    I don't even play guitar. Have solely played mandolin since 2004 and have never had that issue. I think it's just me getting use to the new shape oof my new mandos neck.

    Left hand thumb soreness

    Hi all,
    So I've been playing my new mandolin a ton lately, trying to get a feel for it, and have developed some soreness in my thumb pad on my left hand. I guess I have been pressing it too hard on...

    Re: New Northfield A5 special coming my way

    It is and it's super comfortable. Much more rounded V shape than my MT but it took hardly any time for me to transition to this rounder profile.
