    Re: Need some advice.

    That's a great offer; I don't know their song list yet, just that it's 50's, 60's, and 70's rock selections. I will probably know more after I attend their practice on the 22nd. After that time I...

    Re: A quieter mandolin?

    Thanks again to all who are responding. Interestingly enough, at the recording session some others in the group asked the engineer about my volume and the engineer said I was perfect. That was when...
