    Baron Collins-Hill has an album of solo old-time tunes on the mandolessons.com site. It's very very good stuff.

    Re: Help a Beginner?

    Another vote for Baron on MandoLessons.com, if you want to just get some info on how to start without committing to a one-on-one teacher (that's best, of course).

    Re: Andrew Marlin and Crew in Portland

    He played the Loar. And it was the most magical sound I've ever heard from a mandolin. We were right up front, so we were hearing the instruments themselves, as opposed to the mic'd sound (it's a...

    Re: Like this site but for guitar....

    TDPRI is a great one. Lots of good stuff, even for non-Tele players.

    TalkBass is decent, if you're a bass player. Those two and the Cafe are my only music-chat sites.

    Re: Thor's Hammer, many thanks

    'Ella' was the personal (A style) mandolin of the late luthier John Sullivan, who named all of the mandolins he made. You can hear her on the most recent album from Mandolin Orange 'Tides Of A...

  13. Re: What does a mando set-up cost in your area?

    The two best shops in Portland charge $75 and $80 for a mando setup. This does not include fretwork.

    He's had that Loar about 6 months or so. They deserve each other.

    ...perfect. I've only had my new A (#266) for a couple months, but it has far surpassed even my admittedly high (and probably unfair) expectations.

    Re: Missing the bluegrass sound

    You'll sound a lot better when you're playing with a couple other people, especially a guitar and bass.

  21. Re: I think something's wrong with my mandolin.

    Can't believe that someone hasn't mentioned this yet, but you clearly need to buy another mandolin... so you can A/B them and find out what's wrong with the first one.
