  1. Re: Article: Scott Napier Giving Away Top 5 Must Have Classic Blu

    Nice idea! Sadly, I too am well out of the age-range for eligibility.
    However, when whichever of you youngsters wins these classic albums and has no way to listen to them... shoot me a PM. I've got...

    Re: The end of my playing days.

    Don't know the exact date but it seems to me it was about this time last year we lost our friend Ivan. He was a good Cafe buddy and great internet pen-pal. I miss him.

    I've had an image in my...

    Re: I don't like F styles. Anyone else?

    I have so little knowledge re violins that I can't tell if this is a serious question or a sarcastic one. A quick search shows that there is at least some discussion on the subject (not really a...

    Re: I don't like F styles. Anyone else?

    Interesting question.

    The universe as we know it would be a vastly different place no matter how that situation played out. With only that one scroll-free Loar floating around out there, massive...

    Re: Bourbon and bluegrass

    Thank you Magnus, this is exactly the kind of info I'd hoped for. I agree that Louisville should be avoided with the current situation. I guess I'll plan to stay in Frankfort and see whatever can be...

    Re: Bourbon and bluegrass

    No offense taken. As I mentioned, I opted to revive an old thread rather than start a new one of the same exact subject.
    I figured Bourbon and Bluegrass are timeless anyway.

    Re: Bourbon and bluegrass

    Instead of starting a new thread (that I was going to title 'Bourbon and Bluegrass'), I figured I'd revive this old one. I'd like to plan a trip in October to visit some of the distilleries on the...

    Re: “Banjo killer”? Wishful thinking?

    I think you're right Doug. When you face the cold hard truth, a banjo-killing mandolin is just wishful thinking. There are loud mandolins of course, when compared to other mandolins. And there are...

    David... I always appreciate your thoughtful posts and of course, you are correct here as usual. You'll have to admit though that your reply sounds a bit like something Sheldon (Big Bang Theory)...

    Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    Funny how the responses thus far seem to be suggesting that 'If not TABS, the logical alternative would be notation'.

    Re: Kentucky KM1050 Or KM1500

    Good advice but it looks like that's not going to be possible.

    Just a little bit of info that might help with your decision. The KM-1500 from that era likely will have a pretty slim neck profile...

    Sad news. Never met him in person but feel I knew him pretty well through interactions here. A classy guy who will be missed.

    Re: Happy ending for stolen mandolin

    So Timothy... I know you and Bill H. are pals and neighbors (of a sort), but I'm missing something. Are you saying you borrowed the guitar from Bill and it was stolen while in your care?

    Yes..."a jarring swing and a miss"; a glaring lack of logic.

    Re: Can you teach musicality?

    I do find comfort there (western tonality and aesthetic). Maybe not ITM so much, but with Bluegrass, old C&W and early R&R. I don't see why or how one needs to stretch beyond that realm in order to...

    I think Bernie asks a couple of perfectly legitimate questions. And asks them in a polite and respectful tone. No accusations... just questions.
