  1. Re: Article: Nashville Cat Dominick Leslie's been Playing Since h

    Nice interview. I appreciate fundamental questions about the right hand, tremolo, and chop chords. Inquiring minds!

    Thanks,

  2. Re: What are your favorite albums featuring mandolin?

    I too love classic country and honky tonk. I mostly play that on doghouse bass, but for great mandolin recordings I always recommend Bela Fleck's 1987 recording "Drive". Sam's playing on there is as...
  3. Re: Playing a collings - what would an "upgrade" really get me?

    I've had 2 different MTs over the last 15 years. Both instruments were very good--perfectly built and played easily. I don't think you can really do better for the money. But in the last few years...
  4. Re: Weber Mandolins: Alaska Specialty Woods Sitka Spruce

    Cool video. I worked on POW Island in 1996 and there was a guy I'd see on an old landing doing just this--salvaging music wood. He was using just hand tools, no chainsaw. Only gripe with the video is...

    Re: Dylan on bluegrass in the New York Times

    I doubt that. I think he listens to everything. And both Dylan and bluegrass musicians like Monroe and Doc were getting a lot more energy during the folk revival. I bet he saw considerable bluegrass...

    Re: Dylan on bluegrass in the New York Times

    I remember reading an interview with him a long time ago where he talked about listening to Monroe. For me calling it "an unforgiving music" puts words to what I've been feeling trying to get this...

    Re: Kimble or Duff F5?

    I've got a Duff A-5 that I love--plays easy and very responsive with excellent tone. A while back I was considering a used Duff F-5 that I'd played a couple times. It was very good but I wasn't sure...

    A well-worn one popped up on the classifieds yesterday and was gone in like a half hour. Any one here grab it? Where is it headed?

    Hey Alan, do you know what guitar(s) and mandolin(s) they played? This is before Thile had a loar I assume. Is that a Dude?

    Re: Gibson Post Mortem

    Disagree. I've played and owned numerous Gibson flattops over the last 15 years and they have been good. I consider the Advanced Jumbo to be the most guitar for the money out there that I know of.
