    For example, I got into some Brazillian Choro thanks to Mike Marshall. He tabbed...

    Re: recommend me an acoustic bass

    We got a Taylor mini bass and I really like it. As easy as a guitar to play but has a good sound to it I think!

    Re: Fake Book

    Onassis, irealpro is very much worth it! Keep in mind it’s only backing tracks no melodies, but still it is an amazing resource. I’ve only been dipping into jazz for a couple of years and it’s been...

    Re: D'addario strings (Consistent breakage)

    I actually had this problem with a few packs of D'addario J74's probably over 10 years ago. If I recall correctly, I think we contacted their customer service and they sent me a few free packs to...

    Re: NMD: Northfield Big Mon

    Awesome Chris, congrats!! I have been impressed with every Northfield I've played so far and I'm sure yours is just killer.
    Let's hear it sometime!
  11. Re: Don Stiernberg Quartet Live Online Concert Friday August 14th

    Looking forward to it!

    I'd request you to sing Witchcraft but I reckon if you aren't singing you can still pick it!
    Topsy would be a good one too!

    Thanks Donnie!

    Re: Chinese made mandolins (Northfield?)

    All I will add from personal experience is talk to Adrian or Derek at Northfield sometime and your concerns will be eased.
    I spent hours at Swannanoa last year with Adrian and came away with a...

    Re: Better tone with light strings?

    I've definitely got too heavy of a picking hand for light strings in a jam setting. On my Flatbush mando which is an awesome one but a backup mostly, I put lights on it when my girlfriend was trying...

    Re: No motivation

    I've done one 3 person jam and that's it since March.
    I have pretty much lost interest in trying to do any gigs or the jams here even if they could be outdoors. They just aren't exciting me and...
  17. Re: When did you realize mandolin was your primary instrument?

    I started on guitar at age 16 in 2001. When I went to college, a friend had a cheapo mandolin and let me borrow it for the weekend. I was hooked right away!
    I still play some guitar but from that...

    Re: Heads up for you Mandolinists with Cats

    Thanks for the warning. I do have tiger lillies outside the front walkway area, but I don't have a cat.
    Probably easier to just keep the flowers and not risk it by getting one. :cool:
  22. Re: How did the "curl" on the mandolin body evolve?

    I like F style mandolins, but I don't go around talking trash about how "Silly" of a "bad taste" in design the A style is, because for some people it is exactly what they want. It's OK to have a...
