    Re: Sierra Hull on Steven Colbert

    I liked it. Always amazed by the guys that go out of their way to tell everybody how much they don't like something on here.

    If nothing else you should be able to appreciate the fact that a whole...

    BTW, let’s not forget Bub in all of this, he rocks the bass on this song. Great to have such an all star cast around a really solid frontman, it lifts all of them up.

    Re: Sierra Hull on Steven Colbert

    Great stuff, thanks for sharing. Always happy to see an artist make it, whether it’s something I completely dig or not. BTW, I think his voice is very interesting and genuine.
  6. Re: Open right hand to closed fist transition help

    Doesn't directly address the OP issue but I thought Wayne's point of not ever being too old to change was great. I totally changed my grip about 20 years ago after holding the pick by my finger tips...

  10. Easy small modification to Eastman 305 fretboard extension

    It turned out that my "sweetspot" for picking on my Eastman 305 was right over the end of the fretboard extension. Unfortunately, this resulted in a lot of annoying noise from the pick hitting the...
  11. Re: Stewmac shipping outrageously expensive and NOT eco-responsib

    It's not just Stu Mac, a lot of places are charging more for shipping. For the last two years I have noticed many places charging more. They are paying someone to pack the box or envelope and...
  12. Re: Stewmac shipping outrageously expensive and NOT eco-responsib

    I agree with your assessment of the eco choice of paper vs. bubble wrap. However, your admonishment of the writers dislike of Stew Macs shipping costs might be a little strong and certainly...
  13. Re: Stewmac shipping outrageously expensive and NOT eco-responsib

    Just so I understand this, throwing out paper that breaks down and goes away in a landfill is less eco-responsible than using a bubble wrap plastic product that will never break down in a landfill...

    Re: What's the real difference?

    My view, for me, is that one's second mandolin should be the very best that can be afforded (and appreciated), what ever that is. In other words, i do not believe, after the first mandolin where you...

    Re: D'addario strings (Consistent breakage)

    Well, I would ask, who taught you to play mandolin? How did you learn to string a mandolin? Did you take lessons? You say you started playing 35 years ago, well before the internet went mainstream,...

    Re: Trouble with open chords and open E string

    I don’t think there’s a “secret normal”.
