    That Alan Bibey is no slouch either.
  3. Re: If money was no object, and perfect bluegrass tone was only g

    I'd be really curious to know if F models are 'more profitable' than A's. Maybe they are by dollar amount, but I'd think the per hour rate garnered is less, generally. If you can get >$20K, F's...

    Re: Finally Finished: Soliver #001

    Congratulations! While I know you've been working on this awhile, I'm still envious at the speed with which you got it done, ie, you kept after it. Not all of us do that:(

    Beautiful job:)

    Re: Whatís after a Kentucky KM-1050?

    How is the sound of the Kentucky holding back your musical development? But sometimes change just for change can be good.
  7. Re: If money was no object, and perfect bluegrass tone was only g

    Many people think the player has a big influence on tone. I’ve played several mandolins belonging to pros and I still only sound like me.

    Re: Old Ironsides

    I believe Frank Solivan was a member. There are other prominent pros as well, but their names escape me.
  10. Re: Unexpected things/benefits about playing mandolin

    I first saw my wife at a jam at Wintergrass that I got invited to as I was walking past the registration desk. Talk about unexpected! Can't be any better than that:)

    Re: Why Mandolin?

    It was Mando or banjo. My Dad played mandolin and my grandmother played frailing banjo. It’s an Appalachian thing:)

    Re: Tiny Moore Tuesday

    I'm sorry I misunderstood your comment, thinking it was not made with the highest admiration of Hayes efforts. Print can sometimes transmit so little information.

    And you're upset some free learning material isn't published? You can always buy a lesson on his site that fits your schedule.
  19. Re: Would anyone be interested in a Blue Chip pick shootout?

    That's a fairly small sample of picks you listed. I have about 30 different ones in front of me and many more in my pick jar. The traveling pick samplers have over 100 different picks.

    I'm sure...

    Re: Help me narrow down my search

    You could certainly find a used Ellis, Kimble, Collings or maybe a Duff at the 5k point in an A. If it’s an F, good luck with your search.

    Re: more accurate clip on tuner than Snark?

    Korg Sledgehammer Pro. Three sensitivity settings, display in simple mode to strobe. Adjustment of A up or down from 440 if that's an issue. You want to check that before you start:)
  24. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    Notation tells you which pitch is to be played, with time value. It does not tell you where the pitch can be found on a fretted instrument. This is often quite a problem for beginners with no prior...
