    Re: Martin vs D'Addario monel

    The D'Addario Monels have been on for almost a month and have made it through some soggy travels in WV and VT. Just picking on them at home tonight and thought I'd report.

    Re: Martin vs D'Addario monel

    Welp, the D'Addario Monels are on and I've been pickin' on them for an hour or so. These strings are right up my alley, hope the sound stays like this for a few weeks or so. Liking them right out of...

    Re: American Acoustic tour

    I was at the show in NYC-- front row seats, even. Such a great show. And I must say, things are better when They're With Her. The Aoife, Sarah, and Sara spots were amazing.

  9. Re: AWESOME "People Get Ready" cover (Sierra Hull)

    Thanks for posting the video. I was at that festival, and the end of Sierra's set had some fun covers. Very funky. We we're dancing to the beat of the bass and mando!

    Re: Mangan monel strings

    I went from GHS Silk and Bronze to Mangan Monel and liked both, for different reasons. I just pulled the Mangan's off after several months of use, and I really liked them. Sort of very traditional...

    There should be a class, "Learning to Love Physical Therapy".

    Re: First Blue Chip

    I've had a CT-55 for about two years now, and it's sort of become an integral part of my set up and how I produce the tone I'm seeking. I never would have guessed this would be the case, because I'm...

    Looking forward to trying these out. Over the past year or so, I've found that I've gravitated away from more standard coated and uncoated phosphor bronze and toward alternatives like Mangan Monel,...

    Re: RIP Greg Lake

    Wow- still so young to leave.

    ELP's music filled many an hour in my youth. 1977 Works tour was my first live rock concert.

    RIP Greg.

    The Chord Melody System is really interesting and helpful. The one thing I've wondered about is if there are some recordings of the etudes. Sometimes Mel Bay gives links to download. It would be...

    I love this song from way back. And this version swings! Was looking for a dance partner. Ginger Rogers maybe. Aaron is also the closest thing we've got to Fred Astaire too!
