    Re: Southern flavor

    This is the way we play it, I don't think TD meant 3 chords in 1 bar...I'll have to try it with the Gm and F#m next time we play it.

    Re: Remove Frets & Scoop

    No.

    Take the money and use it on lessons, if you are hearing pick click you’re digging in too deep and it’s poor technique. No amount of scooping will fix that.

    Re: Montana mandolin field trip

    Sherry, tell your son to look up Greg Boyd's House of Fine Instruments. Its right in Missoula, he has a fabulous shop and is a equally fabulous person. There is a great music scene in Missoula.
