    Re: When you started and why and where you ened up?

    In high school everyone was playing guitar. It made you cool.

    Being a contrarian I both wanted to be cool, and at the same time I didn't want to follow the herd.

    I'll admit I was never a listener to PHC either. I picked up the mandolin last year at age 48 with the only musical background of playing violin for 3 years in middle school. Hanging around this...

    Re: New Videos - Brooklyn Bluegrass Bash

    Tony Trischka takes the lead on this tune of his. David Grisman played on the studio recording and, as you can hear, Sarah Jarosz had some fun with that! I LOVE this performance.

    Ears are not bad for a musical instrument decision, or so it seems. Men have made worse decisions with less appropriate body parts.

    I am pretty contrarian in my tastes, which is why, when everyone was playing guitar I picked up a mandolin.

    Re: This is incredible...
