  1. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I stand corrected. I am a Hole fan but that has no bearing on my interest in mandolin
  2. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I have to imagine this is the first time Courtney Love's name has come up on Mandolin Cafe!

    Re: eBay sales tax

    Agree. I dont want to pay more but not collecting sales tax for out of state purchases puts brick and mortar stores at a disadvantage.
  4. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Is this suggesting that Gibson will take action against dealer's that sell the other offending guitars? Why would any dealer call Gibson to report themselves?

    Re: Go To Jams Now!

    I did one of the Pete Wernick Jam classes earlier this year and found it to be a really safe way to get started. Despite being only 4 months in to playing mando I was able to hang in there and have...
  6. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I have a 70's Ibanez Les Paul copy guitar. I guess I should be expecting Gibson hooligans to be kicking down my front door?

    Re: 3 hours of practice a day?

    I dont think I could practice that much even if I had the time. Enjoyment would soon turn into drudgery and I think I would end up hating the instrument. Some good advice I got here was the break...

    Re: Am I asking too much?

    If there were a deserving young musician that needed it, I would do that. However, there is no way to determine if the inquiries are from one of those or just an opportunist

    Re: Am I asking too much?

    When I bought the Ibanez I thought it sounded pretty good. But, after comparing it to the Bovier and a Kentucky KM250 I bought here on the classifieds, it falls pretty short. For a while I kept it...

    Am I asking too much?

    I bought an Ibanez M510BS mandolin on Amazon in October. It got me into the instrument and I quickly wanted something better, so I bought a J Bovier off of Reverb in December. The Ibanez has been...

    Re: Music Streaming service question...

    I really like the instrumentalist bluegrass channel on Pandora. For all types of music, the learning functions works well (figure out songs to play based on your preferences and listening history)

    Re: Should I take my Eastman MD305 on vacation?

    Before I did this I would make sure your wife was OK with it. If I brought a mandolin on a family vacation, I'd be in divorce court. That said, I sometimes bring my mandolin on business trips and I...

    Re: practice advice: speed vs repetoire

    Jim, I took a Pete Wernick jam class this past winter and that was very helpful. Now that summer is here (sort off) I have a lot less time. I probably wont get back to playing jams until the fall...

    practice advice: speed vs repetoire

    I've been playing about 7 months now and have made a lot of progress. I have been working through Bert Casey's book. For each song, there is a backing track that plays the tune at 5 speeds from 50...

    It's really not that big of an accomplishment. Now if he were able to make it for 127 days stuck with a banjo, that would be incredible

    4- vs 8-string electric mandos

    I recently got a hankering to get a solidbody electric mandolin. I am unsure of whether to go 4 or 8 string. It would seem like a 4 string would be more guitar like and allow string bending and...

    Re: a bad practice session

    Lots of good advice here. I was concerned that continuing to practice would just reinforce mistakes. I like the idea of ending the practice and just playing for fun.

    a bad practice session

    What do you do when you have a bad practice session? This is where its not coming together, you feel off, and you aren't playing well. Do you try to press on or pack in in and try again tomorrow?
