    Re: Thile using an SM57 mic

    I believe this is a legit quote from Gillian Welch, although I can't remember or vouch for the original source.

    "We carry Shure SM-58s and SM-57s," Welch says. "Fancy microphones can be very...

    Great quote from Norman Blake in post 27 above ^^^. And thoughtful. He's separating the idea of labeling for commercial reasons (and making a living is important and valid in this world), from the...

    Re: Punch brothers

    Oh! Damn! That is a helluva buildup and release.

    You can't overstate the reverence and deep love the Bros have for so much of the repertoire. Take Noam's Kenny Baker reboot. And now this album....

    Re: Lyon & Healy Mandobass

    It's a neat instrument. And I believe that it does have an endpin. It's been a while since I've seen it in person.

    Like all bass mandolins, it's not comparable to a double bass in almost any...

    Re: Chris Thile's new pick

    I don't think there's any cause to be cynical about trying to find the strings, the pick, the instrument that works for you. And of course many top pros are always on the hunt. And others settle on...

    Re: 3-Part Chris Thile Master Class online

    Thile made me my first Negroni. I have to say, watching him wield that ice pick made me a little nervous!

    It was a good drink. And not my last. :-)

    Re: 3-Part Chris Thile Master Class online

    It's a bad time for me to watch sign up for something on a schedule - but with the 30 day archiving, I think I'll sign up and watch 'on demand'. Can't wait to hear more about the content.

    Re: Still cant play a break!

    Have you taken a look at this video? It was made for the Cafe's profile of Michael Daves who teaches Bluegrass Vocals for ArtistWorks, but it's a great guide to building a bluegrass mandolin solo.

    I'm impressed with Kimsey's thoughtful open-minded treatment of the questions. It sounds like you've mostly made up your mind, and there's a lot to be said for taking the most 'conservative' approach...
