    I just saw her on Saturday night in Pittsburgh ... it was nothing short of incredible.

    Re: Is Baby Ben a traditional tune?

    I play in an old-time fiddle group in Pittsburgh and we just started playing one of James Bryan’s tunes, “Farewell Trion”.

    Re: Northfield Recurve case failure

    Seems unfair to Northfield to post this without more information.

    Re: my bowl-back mandolin

    I sold a similar bowlback here on the cafe last month. I listed it for $250 and got no replies. I tried again at $150 (including shipping) and it sold in about a week. I think you could get $150-$250...

    I love hearing Jesse play his Stiver. It has a rosewood back and the sound is really one of a kind. I’ve played the other rosewood F5 that Lou made at the time, one of my friends owns it. It was...

    Re: Sawyer Brown, The Walk

    Never heard it, so I googled it. Nice song, better than a lot of modern country tunes.

    Re: G7+5

    Add a D# instead of the D to the chord..

    The plus 5 means #5

    The whole chord would be G B D# F

    If you’re new to this, just play a regular G7 and it will most likely be fine! And much...
