    Re: Refret for Gibson F9

    Thanks. I probably wouldn't use them though. Mainly because if I'm going to install a pickup, I would want to hide it as much as possible - partly for looks, partly for feedback control. I think...

    Re: Summergrass

    I'll be there with a few friends camping out. It's always been a great blend of local bands and national acts to keep things interesting. The campground jamming is great too!

    I'd highly recommend heading to Nashville to visit both Gruhn and Cater's. They have a great selection of quality instruments in that range. Since now two instruments are the same - you may be...

    Hey all - who's heading up to the Great 48?

    I'm excited to be heading up again - but unfortunately my buddies I was traveling up with had to bail. So I get to make the 4.5 hour drive myself :(

    My recommendation if you wanna play more mandolin and get called more for more gigs - just play more.

    Go to every open mic, open jam, musical association, music festival, etc that you can. ...

    The "rodeo" starts Wednesday but it's based on the line that started Monday (or the Friday before for some) - so, the earlier you get there - the better the spot you can find.

    A safe bet is to play anything from 1920 and earlier using the arrangements from that time too. Any sheet music with the artist listed as "traditional" is a safe bet too.
