    Re: Cool video of a Loar.

    Z,

    That shot at 2:18 has to be some B-roll of another instrument. I know John and have played his Loar a few times, he definitely doesn't have different gauges on those courses! A couple obvious...

    Re: Tone Gard - Comfortable ?

    I've been playing with one for years. To me, it's just an extension of the instrument. I don't really notice that it's there! Like has been said already, get one and if you don't like it, you'll...

    Re: Sierra Hullís E-Tune

    This lady is just too damn smooth. What gets me every time is just how small those hands look compared to her axe! She is an absolute legend and definitely sits among the best players in the world in...

    Re: Sierra Hull on Steven Colbert

    I'm a big Sturgill fan regardless of this new album, but I love the new album. Sierra Hull is exquisite in everything she does and this album is no exception!

    Re: The truth about Eastman octaves

    I got inspired by his little Jamgrass 741 jam, so I learned it and jammed out this morning. Enjoy!

    Definitely sounds like Jamgrass 741 at the start...I know what I'm learning today! He sure makes that thing sing!
  12. Re: Ricky & Marty Play Bill's Mandolin on "Big Night"

    That photo is truly something special. From the instruments to the room to the painting, it's all perfect! I got to pick some Monroe tunes in the rotunda a few years back, it was a such a wild...
  13. Re: Where to hold right wrist/arm when playing tremolo?

    I personally plant my pinky finger on the top of my mandolin, and use a stiff wrist. I use forearm movement anchored at the pinky for my tremolo. It's going to be a personal preference thing, as you...
  14. Re: Ricky & Marty Play Bill's Mandolin on "Big Night"

    I've gotta say my highlight was Carlene and Marty at the end too. Will The Circle Be Unbroken has been the closing song of so many bluegrass festivals and events in my life - hearing those two play...

    Re: right wrist, rotate or up and down?

    I think you will find that this varies quite a lot from player to player. Technique to me is less of what should I do and how should I do it, but rather avoiding the bad habits, and allow myself to...

    Re: Tortoise shell pick alternative

    I second ChrisMelodee, they aren't cheap but BlueChip does it for me. I've used only one pick for the last 7 years and that's a BC.

    Re: Builder or Company

    My suggestion would be to watch classifieds for a used luthier-made axe. While some factory made mandos are certainly high quality, if you ask me, there's just no replacing a solid handmade...

    Dean Town - Vulfpeck on mandolin!

    So, it really doesn't fit the rock category here, but I don't see a place for funk! I learned Joe Dart's bass part for the wicked funky tune, Dean Town by Vulfpeck. Let me know what you guys think!
