    Re: Elixir Mediums vs. D'Addario Mediums?

    I did go Elixir for a while on mandolin, they are very bright when new, are highly responsive and hold up a while, my only dislike on Elixir is when they start to "go" they go fast ( I tend to play...

  5. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Nice post Brunello97, "American" music is awash with the Blues and its pentatonic form. Blues in itself is a hybrid form, what I wonder is were West African people using the same musical scale as in...

    Re: Disappointed with the Nashville music scene

    "wildly unreasonable expectation" -alas its only what I want that makes me weep

    I wasn't looking for anything specific nor even the best of the best or some diamond in the rust.
    I wanted...
  8. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    On the whole too much Johnny Cash thing, I agree they could have cut some of that and covered some other artists, but ask someone who is not into country music to name a county music star. Will they...

    Re: Disappointed with the Nashville music scene

    I have to say the Ken Burns Country dock did "learn me up" on the Nashville music scene history. No disrespect to Chet Atkins, but adding in the lushy strings and jazzy piano to country music, for...
  10. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    I did the Artistsworks Mike Marshall lessons for a bit, the video I submitted was Cuckoo's Nest on mandola.

    Re: Picking faster?

    probably been said a million times here but play at a speed you are comfortable with - with a metronome.

  13. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    I agree seems to be a lot of drum kits and electric instruments in a lot of the BG I experienced this year, I understand the need to keep young people interested and to expand the boundaries of the...
  14. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Not sure who said it , but it was around the Towns Van Zant section - or who it was said to - but someone told a struggling young county musician - "in this business you can be two things, you can be...
  15. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    I enjoy Burn's documentary style, and was reminded how much I love that early country music, Jimmy Rodgers, Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams ( what's not to love), and then they got to the part where...

  17. Re: New music from Mike Marshall/Darol Anger

    Caught the Fresh grass show, hard to slow these two down! Mike was playing a Northfield F5, I didn't get a chance to ask him about it, but it sounded great, (I wonder if that has anything to do with...

    Hoping to catch them at Freshgrass tomorrow! The Duo, Chiaroscuro, Woodshop, some of my favorite recordings by those two maniacs! Darol has been playing Octave alot an Mike needs no introduction...

    Re: OM String recommendations

    When I first got this Weber Black Ice Octave I'm not sure what strings were on but they had been there a while, so I put a set of GHS PF285s on and it sounded good, but I always thought the strings...

    I 've always been drawn to the dark side of the mando universe, and actually focused on octave for along time, the first mandola I bought (off of Larry Sledge -who played mandocello on Norman Blake's...
