    Re: A Tiny surprise....

    Do I see/hear the late great Rob Wasserman on bass?
  2. Re: Wegen (bluegrass) picks without grip holes available?

    Thankīs all.

    I have some M150 picks also. But Iīd have to cut them to size (teardrop shape etc.). Apparently Wegen makes some kinds of picks without and some with holes.

    As it is in these...
  3. Wegen (bluegrass) picks without grip holes available?

    I will run low on my supply on Wegen picks in the forseeable future. Itīs been a long time in the coming.

    I have Wegen (bluegrass) picks without holes. Thatīs what I like. Are they still...

  5. Re: 1923 Lloyd Loar Previously Owned by Joe Val For Sale

    Itīs a great mandolin. Iīve played it. It gave me a serious hearing adjustment towards other instruments. Iīd have no qualms to own it.

    The owner is a nice guy. I hope his health concerns are not...

    Re: What's up with this A4?

    The fretboard (extention) is not right for a mandolin. That kind of fretboard indicates a mandola. So... is the instrument a mandolin or a mandola?

    Re: Thank you Scott and Dan!

    Yes, thankīs Scott for making our conversations possible.

    Re: How thick of a pick?

    Well...

    The Wolle pick example shows that classical performers prefer a thick though quite flexible pick. Us bluegrass folks like stiff picks. I doubt that any of us would like to use a Wolle pick...

    Re: Blue Chips

    This thread had quite some funny moments.

    Pick pouches (on a key chain) disintegrated on me. Therefore no more of that.

    I keep a spare in my wallet (I am a no loose change jangling in my...

    Re: How thick of a pick?

    As it may be with cars or other somewhat technical devices. The higher quality the main product has, the more fussier you may be with equipment.

    A thick pick may make a "cheap" mandolin sound...

    Re: Hester Mandolin

    Enjoy and play it in good health.

    As you are one of the (many?) musicians who are not unfamiliar to the "catch and release" syndrom, I have noticed some of your mandolins in the past. Am I right...
  17. Re: Jazz mandolin/violin duet from Aaron Weinstein

    As allways top drawer.

    How do you go about thinking rythm with the violin when you play with yourself?
  18. Re: Learning to read music for Mandolin

    I have marked the obvious and necessary part of your statement in red. Read my post and see that my posts were about just that. And itīs no reverse engineering. Because mainly it (the OPīs queation)...
  19. Re: Learning to read music for Mandolin

    Thatīs a bold statement without giving the shadow of an argument. Your statement is therefore negligable.

    Yet I feel inclined to elaborate my point yet again, and probably clearer.

  20. Re: Learning to read music for Mandolin

    At all who advocate playing scales (only). I do not think that this is the right aproach. I do think that knowing your scales is imortant. But it all boils down to knowing your chords. When you know...
  21. Re: Learning to read music for Mandolin

    The difference between piano and mandolin is that on the piano each note has one designatet spot, namely the key that you play it on. On the mandolin you have multiple possibilities to play one note....

    First heard him on a Monroe record and was an instant fan. I allways wished he would record with his son David. That didn‘t happen. Funny that a banjopicker (predudice mode on) would work at...
