  1. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Interesting that nobody has yet mentioned the Maddox Brothers and Rose. My brother Erik and I listened to a lot of their stuff in the early 80s and did some of their more manic and funky material. ...

  3. Re: Country Gazette - A Traitor In Our Midst era

    Such a KILLER album! One of the great alternative paths of bluegrass that went largely unfollowed. Those west coast bands like Country Gazette and the Ky Colonels probably owed as much, if not more...

    Re: 4- vs 8-string electric mandos

    For the normal mandolin scale neck and tuning, I myself prefer an 8-string. Single-strings that high up are just too piercing sonically for me, and I'd opt to go lower. I have a mini-strat...

    Take a spare fiddle, mandolin, and/or capoed guitar and tune the strings similar to the hardingfele drones. If you have a clamp on...

    It's not the instrument, it's the player(s). Always. Also, it's the particular performances and/or tunes. It should be about the solos that really grab you regardless of the instrument, and...

    Re: Rockabilly on the mandolin.

    That Docabilly "Bird Dog", though played nice, is really just bluegrass

    This is rockabilly!

    The 1957 original by Billy Lee Riley is pretty good

    If you really want to cement the sounds of the various modes in your head, you should cycle through them using the same root note:
