    Re: Happy Birthday Norman Blake

    Norman literally changed my life from almost the first note I heard on "The Essential Norman Blake." I'd never heard anything like it, and instantly knew I wanted to chase after it. Going on two...

    Re: Live From Home

    Love these. I'm afraid I just fell in love with Reina Del Cid. Mercy.

    Re: Reduce costs pleased

    Technically that would be a run on fiddles, and a run from accordians and banjos.
  4. Re: Current pros looking to teach lessons during down time

    Great thread. I may send Grant Gordy a note. He's phenomenal.
  5. Re: Do You Play ALL of Your Mandolins Regularly?

    I've started putting my guitars on weekly rotation. Each week, I play one designated guitar for the week. I've only got three mandolins, not including the ocrtave, so it hasn't come to that yet...
  6. Re: #TBT Mando Madness at Nacogdoches, Texas bluegrass festival!

    Fantastic pictures! I'm surprised Kelly Lancaster and Dave Peters aren't somewhere in there. At least I don't recognize Kelly. I didn't know Dave.
  7. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    My first ever mandolin was a Rouge I bought off of amazon for about $50 new. It was a contender for the worst instrument I ever owned (although was maybe edged out by an unplayable Washburn travel...

    Re: Music "Stand" Challenge

    I keep one of these on my coffee table. It's very handy.

    Re: Learning to play with one less finger

    Best wishes on a quick recovery. I'd think learning to compensate on mandolin would be easy compared with the challenge of mastering mathematics in base nine. Good luck on both!

    Re: Why do people only sell the great ones?

    I sold a Collings MT I'd love to have back to fund a custom that didn't sound nearly as good to my ears. I don't know that it was the best I've ever played, but it was mighty good.

    Re: Anyone seen an Eastman El Rey?

    It looks neat. Sort of like a little Les Paul. That said, I wouldn't trade my Pono octave for one. It's killer.

    Re: In case or on stand?

    At home most of of my guitars and mandolins are hanging on my wall, with a couple of exceptions that don't get played a lot. The easier they are to reach, they more often they get played. I live in...
  13. Re: We have a 3-way race: Collings vs Pava vs Gilchrist

    Congrats! That's beautiful!
  14. Re: We have a 3-way race: Collings vs Pava vs Gilchrist

    My mando stable includes a Collings MT2-O and a Collings A, so I don't think you can go wrong either way. I can't afford a Gil just now, but I know they're incredible.
  15. Re: Your thoughts on Ellis A4s and other modern, upper tier ovals

    I've got a Collings MT2-O, and second all of these comments. I used to own an Ellis F5 Deluxe and it was supurb (way beyond my skill set), but I've never played one of his A4s. They are...

    It would be wonderful to play some of those different designs and see what worked and what didn't.

    Re: 2020 NAMM Show Report

    That looks like a step up from the one I have. I've got this one. It's actually ABS plastic and not fiberglass as I said in my original post.

    Re: 2020 NAMM Show Report

    I have a Crossrock A style fiberglass mandolin case that I got in December. I wanted something sturdier than a gig bag, but didn't want to spring for a Calton or Hiscox. My Collings and my Pava...

    Re: Mandolin study

    If you could stretch your budget a bit, I would imagine the Eastman 305 listed at the top of the Classifieds section of the forum would probably be a huge step up from either of the two models you...

    I read about his death in the NYT this morning. He was on stage with friends, said "I'm sorry," to the audience, and just put his head down and fell silent. Didn't even drop his guitar. Pretty...

    If those "scientists" are so smart, why am I an amazing picker but still ugly?

    You can't explain that.

    Re: Chris Thile's new pick

    Twenty five bucks. I'm afraid the best I can afford just now is to sound like Steve Earle. Either that or search through the couch cushions for my Blue Chip.
