    Re: What are your go-to crowd pleasers?

    If it's Sunday start out with a spiritual like "Revival", as in Newgrass. Or "Uncloudy Day". Really nice if others join in singing. Chop it hard and get ready to retune for any further picking.

    Re: Help with case color

    I really like the wild colors my Pegasus cases, an F-style in Daffodil yellow and an A-style in Tangerine.

    When in use they have a case-cover anyway so it doesn't really matter. I just like those...

    Re: Thomastik-Infeld Strings

    Flatwound TI strings are an acquired taste I reckon. Nice to the fingers. Don't seem to cut in a group setting.

    Tried mittel and starks. Sounded the same when I took them off as when new.

    Re: string life with limited playing

    Monel strings has spoilt me. Didn't really prefer the Martin Monels.

    I wipe down with just a smidge of WD-40(and rub it off) when they get that "less than fresh" feel.

    It appears to me that Marc lived life on his own terms and was, no doubt averse to compromise. He strikes me as
    a shining example of courage lived everyday. We should all be so courageous.
