    Re: LR Baggs radius?

    I have been using a Baggs for a few gigs lately. I agree some of the above comments, re: top noise (I'll try Dave Greenspoon's suggestion about eq'ing), sounds phasey. Overall, it's OK and gets the...

    Re: Rawhide pick stroke advice sought

    We all know that Mike Compton has studied Bill Monroe's music and right hand rhythms like nobody else. I subscribe to his Peghead Nation series but he hasn't yet taught Rawhide. He might be available...

    Re: Tremolo Notation

    Thanks David. I've been puzzling over this as I've been learning to read Italian mandolin music. For example, a whole note would always be tremolo unless marked as "senza trem"? Or a quarter note...
  6. Re: 1907 Gibson F 2 in SF Bay Area Craig's List

    It's the one that got away. I was notified it sold last night! If someone on the Cafe bought it, I'd love to hear about it.:)
  7. Re: 1907 Gibson F 2 in SF Bay Area Craig's List

    Correct on both counts. Wait a minute, are you speculating that either Larry or Neil is selling a 1907 Gibson? ;)
  8. Re: 1907 Gibson F 2 in SF Bay Area Craig's List

    I'm waiting for a response. I'll keep you posted...

    Re: Sarah Jarosz on SNL this Saturday

    I'm reviving this thread because I think Sara Jarosz was in the band on SNL last night. Did anyone else notice? Am I correct? Looks like she was playing an octave and back up singing. I have to admit...
  10. Re: 1907 Gibson F 2 in SF Bay Area Craig's List

    CWRoyds, did you play any of the other F2s or F4s at Schoenberg? I've been admiring all the Gibsons he has on his website. They all look remarkable.
  11. Re: 1907 Gibson F 2 in SF Bay Area Craig's List

    Yes, to me 3 point Gibsons are very cool!
  12. 1907 Gibson F 2 in SF Bay Area Craig's List

    Has anyone in the San Francisco Bay Area checked this one out? I'm so tempted to take a look but heaven knows I don't need another mandolin! I'm wondering if it is a fixer upper project or if it's in...

    Re: getting into the Italian style

    I would add this link to the playing of one of the Italian American mandolin masters Matteo Casserino, originally from Sicily. He played in various cafes in San Francisco in the 1970s through the...

    Re: Ghs Nickel vs Nickel Bronze vs Phospher

    I tried monels recently and just couldn’t get used to the difference. The set I tried was a Sam Bush set with fairly light gauges. What is it about the Daddario monels you like? What gauges are they?...
  19. Re: Bill Monroe's Mandolin: When Mr. Monroe was 21 years old

    A Larson guitar makes sense because I think the Larsons were based in Chicago and Bill and Charlie worked in Chicago at oil refineries, correct? Do we know where the photo was taken?

    Re: Go Deeper, Not Wider

    I agree with the concept, and it’s one I struggle with. There is so much access with the internet to EVERYTHING! It’s difficult for me to settle down and dig in. Thanks for the post.

    I think I once heard a quote from Dave Apollon that said morning was the best time to practice (and that the right hand was more important than the left).

    Re: John Sullivan F

    I agree about the unique Sullivan sound, Demetrius. When I had my 2001 Sullivan I thought it was similar to Caleb's and I was thrilled with it. Plenty of volume and tone. I played a lot of Old Time...
