    Re: Woodstock

    In a new trademark case Ohio State University is attempting to trademark the word "the". I wonder what this will do to THE Gibson?

    Re: General Mandolin Post

    When the Flatpick-L list was going seriously the guitarists most definitely did. In fact that list blew up in a big brawl over some petty disagreements and was never the same again. Some of it was...

    Re: My new Silverangel Econo A has arrived!

    I usually try to go. Keith Yoder comes back from the Southland for it and Kalona so it is a good chance to talk and pick with him as well as a bunch of others. Plus they always have good bands. ...

  12. Re: Trying to find old article: guitarist exploring pick grips

    The Tuck Andress article is quite in depth. He is a very good jazz/fusion fingerstylist. Some of his conclusions are a little suspect. They certainly are not really applicable to bluegrass. He is...

    I found the bone bridge pins helped the sound on my Martin HD-28. It made the bass a lot more clear and defined and not as muddy. Like the others say, if you are getting a twanging I would look at...
