    Short scale Northfield

    I had a chance to play one of those flattop Northfields on Saturday at Fiddler's Green. My Octave is a Pona with a 23-inch scale that sounds terrific, but the scale length definitely throws me. ...

    Re: 3-Part Chris Thile Master Class online

    I gave up watching the video about 10 minutes in and worked on my family tree while it ran in the background. Looking forward to watching the archived video, but it was too distracting to try to...

    Re: Arlo Guthrie Retirement

    I got see him around 1990 when he played at George Washington University. James McMurtry opened and was amazing by the way. After the show, my buddy and I hung around the tour bus just a bit, and...
  5. Re: Man 'headed for death' says he was saved by this

    The New York Times did a lengthy and well-written article on them several months ago. It's probably behind a paywall, but if you're a subscriber here's a link to the article.
  6. Re: Best selections of mandolins near Houston TX

    Fuller's may be the best store for acoustic guitars in Texas right now, but Fiddler's Green always has a much better mandolin selection. I have two mandolins and an octave that came from Fiddler's...

    Re: Calton Cases - in pictures

    Curious to know if you've ever tried an oval hole Collings in yours. My MT2-0 feels like it's got a little bit deeper body than my f-style mandolins. (I'm sure the specs are easily available, but...

    Re: Article on Chief O誰eil

    I play the tune Chief O'Neill's favorite, but I was under the impression it was an older tune, maybe O'Carolan? Does anyone know if that's a tune this fellow collected?

    I think I'll give a run...

    Re: Newbie from Texas says Howdy

    I've only been once, but Nacadoches seems like a cool little town. I made a point to stop by the Old Time String Shop when I was there and had a great chat with the proprietor, although I've spaced...

    Re: Houston park meetup

    I'd be interested. I'm mostly a fiddle tunes guy, and more likely to play guitar than mandolin.

    I don't know many swing tunes either Mark. Wish I did! Working on Little Rock Getaway on guitar...

    Re: Norman Blake Tunes

    Mark, I'd really enjoy dropping in on you during one of my trips between Houston and Dallas. Love your taste in music and I know I'd enjoy picking a few with you sometime.

    Re: Dylan on bluegrass in the New York Times

    That's a great statement of why I never feel right calling what I play "bluegrass" even if that's the closest I can come to describing it to people who aren't steeped in it. Fiddle tunes, acoustic...

    Re: Daily Cleaning Routine

    I tickle the strings as often as possible to keep it awake. Other than that, I'll take a little polish to it every now and again if it feels grubby. That might happen once or twice a year. I...
  17. Re: Something unique: Phoenix Custom 'Blue Mahoe'

    Man. Beautiful craftsmanship and I'm all for innovation, but the tone doesn't appeal to me at all. Maybe it's the moosebone nut. It reminds me of a Mid Missouri I briefly owned.

    Re: One Mandolin - forever...

    This question is irrelevant to me unless y'all want to send me your extra mandolins. I'll even pay shipping. Maybe.

    Just what I needed to see today. I love the inlay on that headstock by the way. That's one of the prettiest I've seen, even from Tom Ellis.

    Re: Octave Mandolin suggestions please

    Have you considered Pono's line of guitar-bodied octaves? I've got a mahogany bodied one (a MND-20) that is terrific. I'm sure it's a different animal than either of the ones you're looking at, but...
