    Re: Developing Finger Independence

    Good left hand position helps keeping the pinky in line. I use scales and scales in thirds, ffcp, slowly, paying attention to my pinky mechanics. I've got a long way to go, I aspire to the Alan...

    Re: Double Standard

    To me that’s part of the issue. The site is information dense, and searching the forums using the site tool is often not useful. Even the site moderators suggest using Google and helpfully provide...
  3. Re: Dumb and petty complaint (Doyle Lawson F-5 content)

    Close your eyes or play it in the dark. Makes you wonder how blind folks chose instruments.

    Re: Ready built electric mandolin necks?

    Advertise them for what you would like to get. If they sell out in an hour, price was too low. If nobody buys one, either the price was too high, or the market is too thin.

    With the absence of...

    Re: "Soft" Pick?

    Dava makes some soft tipped picks, although I doubt they were designed to mimic fingers on strings.

    Re: buying tonewood

    If you’re going into production I’d suggest buying a suitable bandsaw. If you’re building as a hobby, I’d buy premachined pieces.

    Re: Developing Finger Independence

    I would also suggest being patient. Today's big effort is tomorrow's (and maybe the next day's) soreness. If 5 minutes is good, 20 minutes may not be better.

    If they don't have it, you didn't miss it:)

    Re: EM200 Gibson Date

    Gibson’s website has some info. Or google ‘Gibson serial numbers’.

    Re: Apitius J Model

    They are very cool, my buddy has one.

    But I have his Arrow, so I don’t feel bad:)

    But that was about something of much greater importance, chocolate:whistling:
  18. Re: Get up John/ split tuning, with Sierra Hull improvising

    That was fun. Interesting watching her Django fingers, just flapping the breeze for the most part. Didn't slow her (or Django) any.

    thanks
  19. Re: Anybody going/been to Alan Bibey Mandolin Camp?

    As much as I love and respect Alan, I can’t believe they are having the camp.

    Good luck and stay healthy.

    Re: If you jam . . . .

    Three finger chords are useful in a lot of genres, especially if you want to play chords and keys beyond 'standard' major keys, ie, G, A, C, and D. I'd encourage you to learn them as they may be...

    Can’t really tell. Could be burl.

    Pretty though.
  22. Re: Homer and Jethro's It Ain't Necessarily Square

    I certainly wouldn't disagree with Don S. but on 'It ain't necessarily Square' I think Jethro is playing lead guitar on Satin Doll.

    btw, I have that album of Country All Stars, its great. A...
  23. Re: Homer and Jethro's It Ain't Necessarily Square

    Actually that’s Jethro holding the mandocaster. Homer had Stratocaster #0001, according to one account.
  24. Re: Gibson opposes Collings' headstock trademark registration, ci

    Well, that just shows Gibson’s complete incompetence, even knowing they’ve abandoned the banjo business. You’d have thought they trademarked that name years ago.
  25. Re: Gibson opposes Collings' headstock trademark registration, ci

    I first noticed Gibson in the Norlin era, so for me they’ve mostly been awful. It was later I learned their earlier banjos and mandolins were mostly fine. Didn’t pay attention to their electric...
