    Re: The Sun Jumped Up This Morning

    Part of a long folk music tradition to write songs that follow common melodies, etc etc

    Re: Big Family: The Story of Bluegrass Music

    Streamed it the other night, and thoroughly enjoyed it. My fiancé, who is neither a musician nor a documentary hound like me, also enjoyed it very much.

    Re: Altering Original Tempo

    I find it hard to reference “original tempo” anyway, unless you’re discussing an original tune as canonized by its author? I think you can, and should, experiment all you want with tempo and play it...

    Re: Increasing Scale Exercise Speed

    The important thing to me is “finding a groove” - whether you use DDDD, DUDU, or a crosspicking combination, whatever, I try to find a groove to work from. Instead of looking for a hard and fast...

    I’d ditch it because of the crack, rather than the scorching.

    Re: Russian Lullaby (Irving Berlin)

    Thanks for sharing Martin, it's a righteous tune.

    I listen to Brian Oberlin's version fairly often:

    Yep, that's what he did, Scotter. Also, he tunes it as a mandola (C, G, A, D). More than you want to know about Johnny's mandolin: http://www.emando.com/players/Gimble.htm

    Stroboclip has been great for me. Have to use it properly though; it’s a sensitive instrument. Somebody mentioned it wouldn’t read one course of strings ... for instance, striking hard with a pick...

    Whatever type of instrument you are selling, if you have a decent case for that instrument, no "special" box is required. Just a good, sturdy box that is a bit larger than the case, and good packing...

    Re: Man I need a good tuner...
