  6. Re: Mando Acquisition Syndrome and the Mandocello

    I have a Ratliff F4 with the oval hole, which has a narrower fretboard than the Goldtone, so the stretches are slightly easier.
    I've posted examples of both in the CBOM section.

    Re: Disappointed with the Nashville music scene

    Jl277z I could not agree more with everything you said, to me " modern country" is pretty much rock in cowboy boots (not the Patsy Cline , Johnny Cash and George Jones I grew up with). My son who...

    Disappointed with the Nashville music scene

    Went to a corporate event in Nashville, with high expectations of catching some quality Blue Grass, but alas I was sadly disappointed.

    Re: The Blarney Pilgrim

    Re: Storage: Case vs Hanging on the Wall

    I do think the dryness of winter heating in northern climates is a risk for keeping your instrument out of the case 100% of the time ( on the wall for instance). I don't think a case does much to...

    Re: Ashokan Farewell Tabs anyone?
