    Re: Happy 75th Birthday Today, David Grisman!

    Happy birthday to one of the greatest tone poets and tune poets ever!!! When will you be recording “Dawg’s Shelter-in-Place”? I’d call it “Dawg’s Quarantine,” but that would be too tight of a leash.

    Re: Live From Home

    Agreed!!!

    When I played that video at 3/4-speed, I thought it lost a littlle of the mando intensity, but it highlighted the beauty of Thileís vocal and playing. Even at 3/4-speed, his break near...

    Re: Sierra Hull tour

    When Sierra has come to the SF Bay Area in the past, she has always played at the Freight and Salvage, our folk/bluegrass/world music mecca, in Berkeley --- even last year when she had Eddie Barbash...

    Re: What's The One That Got Away?

    Two mandos from one trip to Carterís in 2017. No regrets, though, since both were way beyond my price range.

    They had two identical F5ís by Oliver Apitius. One was from 2016, and the other was...

    Re: Education

    A pilgrimage to Nashville is fun for so many reasons! For an education about mandolins over $5K, it will be hard to beat Carterís and Gruhnís. Youíll get to play mandolins ó- often more than one ó-...

    He showed another facet of his virtuosity in this medley. He dialed back the speed and the volume and played appropriately gorgeous accompaniment to the vocals.

    For good reason, of course.

    My left hand never goes above the 19th fret. My right hand usually goes around West Palm Beach, where the sweet spot of my mandolin lies. I was a mandoclicker.
