    Re: Eastman MD-315 for Christmas! Woohoo!

    You were right to post it here. Few people at work want to hear us ramble on about a Christmas present. Forum readers are just as excited as you are for a new mandolin story. Great wife, great...

    Re: When Did You First Realize . . .

    It's just like golf, hundreds of bad shots surrounding a few good ones. But I keep coming back remembering the few times I get it right.

    Don't want to hijack this thread, but maybe an ancillary one to this might be: How do you learn to PLAY raw earthy mandolin in the tradition of early Monroe and those cited above?

    Re: Instruments, Cost & the Placebo Effect

    Really? This could take some time.
    Arrived Wednesday and even for the navigationally challenged very easy to find. Less than two miles from 65. The Scarritt Bennett Center is a beautiful, small...

    Re: Monroe Mandolin Camp, 1st time.

    What a great time. So many unforgettable moments. Glen Duncan's Monroe memories, THE Paul Duff working on MY mandolin, all the instructors especially Mark Royal, and not an aloof person in the bunch....

    Re: Dream, Dream, Dream...so what's your list?

    A Cohen C# model and an Old Wave oval. These deserve to be played but I could be happy entering a room and just seeing both of these two on display.
