    Re: Visit to Carter Vintage Guitars

    I played a great torriefied MT down at fiddlers green last spring. Nice instruments.

  3. Re: Gibson Master Model vs. Ellis F5 with all of his highest opti

    I have a an Adi topped Duff and Adi topped Heiden, both fantastic instruments by fantastic builders with plenty of power, volume and great tone. But, my loudest instrument by far is my Sitka topped...
  4. Re: Gibson Master Model vs. Ellis F5 with all of his highest opti

    At that price point may as well fly to Nashville and play mandolins til you find the one you can't put down. Price wise that is not that much compared to how much you are investing in the instrument....

    Thanks for posting! This podcast is great. I am already a few episodes in. I have wanted to get deeper into jazz as I have really only started to scratch the surface, so it is nice to have another...

    Re: Please help! Fixing my pick direction

    Doing that exercise daily will re-train your muscle memory. You can do the "ghost notes" but if that is too challening you can play a quarter note as 2 1/8 notes while you are re-training your hand....

    Re: Right hand cure-all exercise

    Thanks Don. Yes, string crossings are obviously super important. When I first started doing this I would cross strings G-D, G-A, G-E, D-G, etc. But for me it was too tedious and to be honest not as...

    Right hand cure-all exercise

    Here is the right hand cure-all exercise I use. (Not really a cure-all, but it covers some bases) I learned it from Zak Borden, a great teacher, and I am sure Mike Marshall does it in finger busters,...

    Here is a little video I created that has an exercise I believe would help you. I am going to make a separate thread for it, but figured it was relevant here.

  12. Re: Question about a Flatiron A model oval hole

    Also looks similar to the back of a Gibson A9, which would put it in the Nashville Era. I can't help but wonder if it was retopped to be an A4 at some point. An odd piece indeed. Wonder how it sounds.

    Re: for people who don't have deep pockets.

    Iíd avoid that Flatiron as it has an integrated fingerboard. Those can be had for cheaper and in my opinion donít sound as good. A Kentucky KM900 Or 950 used should set you straight or a flatiron A...

    Re: Picking faster?

    As others have noted, its going to be all about the right hand, especially if you have fiddle experience and knowledge of what to do with the left hand. For my money the best way to improve right...

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    They look cool for what they are. Guessing playability and finish are what you would expect from Collings. If it was my only 1750 for a mandolin canít see how Iíd take it over a used MT though.

    Re: Beware EVOs

    I had Lynn Dudenbostel put Evos on my Duff not long after I got it because I didn't like the small frets and it sounds great. Best decision I ever made.

    Thanks for the link. Yes, a killer band. Lot of Nashville Bluegrass Band + Block + Tyminski, not a bad.

    29 and 30 were the first 2 featuring the bridgewood. It turned out stellar on those mandolins, but is not the defining feature of his instruments. He made many fantastic instruments with different...

    Rip to Jeff Austin. Hopefully he has found peace. I can say that Jeff and Yonder were an influence on my becoming a mandolin player. I also met my future wife at a Yonder show.
