    Re: Best Online Sites For Learning

    I don’t know of any OM series, but David Surette and Robin Bullock are great players who often teach at festivals. So, they might also give Skype lessons. Surette’s website is pretty sparse, but it...

    Re: What are your go-to crowd pleasers?

    Absolutely! Both of those also work great as set openers.

    Around the fire, with only one choice, I might also go with John Reischman’s “Little Pine Siskin” or “Daylighting the Creek.”

    Hull Covers Prine

    Fingerpicking on OM with a drop-dead gorgeous vocal. I hope it’s on the list for her next album.

    Re: New to the emando world.

    This video will give you the best of two worlds. Sam Bush starts on resonator mando, and then during the guitar solo five minutes in, switches to electric mando. You also get an amazing vocal from...

    Re: Breedlove American 00

    If it’s been there for eight months, it probably has gone dormant, and its strings may be overripe, so you’ll be hearing it at its worst during first contact. You can’t do anything about the...
  8. Re: i am having problems with "clefs" again. Treble or alto

    Short answer: the music that you like to play is usually easier to find written in treble clef, so learn how to play mandola from treble clef.

    Long answer: the notes in each clef are tied to a...

    Re: Dammit!

    When I was in college, my left ring finger got clobbered in a basketball game when I tried to intercept a full-court pass, and my jump was a couple inches short. The good news was that I deflected...

    Re: Mandolin to Mandola

    As the others have mentioned, this is going to take a lot of effort to get a result that you probably won’t like.

    I agree that the main issue is the C string. Regardless of the string gauge, I...
  11. Re: Opinions about trading out a Weber Sage OM #1

    If you’re looking for “the big warm sound,” you should probably stay away from maple back and sides, which is what the Sages often (always?) had, and go for walnut or mahogany. Rosewood on an OM...

    Re: Weber Bitterroot Cedar Top

    I haven't played any Bitterroots since Bruce sold the business, and I only played spruce-topped ones back then. So, I'll offer this to tide you over until others reply with more current info.

    Re: How Do I Maximize An Octave Mandolin?

    Tim O’Brien uses an octar really effectively to support his vocals, but those tend to be more percussive than regular OM’s.

    This one starts out solid, and then gets really fun at around 3:45. Didn’t know that John Cowan plays/played with the Doobies.

    Re: Happy 75th Birthday Today, David Grisman!

    Happy birthday to one of the greatest tone poets and tune poets ever!!! When will you be recording “Dawg’s Shelter-in-Place”? I’d call it “Dawg’s Quarantine,” but that would be too tight of a leash.
