  1. Re: Andrew Marlin's awesome new instrumental album

    Rather than create a new thread, I thought I'd give this one a shot in the arm.

    Andrew has announced a (short!) series of West Coast dates with the BIAC crew this December.

    Tickets are on...
  2. Re: Mandolin Considerations -- Add to my List

    Might be able to find a Nugget in your range or, as Hank mentioned, there're Givens' out there, too.

    I wouldn't rule out a new instrument from one of the builders you mentioned. I thought a new...

  5. Re: Article: The 1978 Bob Givens Interview from The Guitars Frien

    Great reading! The photos are a nice bonus.

    Assuming the guy in the photo with Bob behind his company logo sign is Steve Weill and the other guy with full beard is Tut Taylor?

    Great article - thanks!

    And, yes, I'll also take two A's and two F's at the catalog prices....!
  8. Re: I think something's wrong with my mandolin.

    Can't believe that someone hasn't mentioned this yet, but you clearly need to buy another mandolin... so you can A/B them and find out what's wrong with the first one.

    Re: Jam etiquette

    DAddario monels on the mandos

    LaBellas (or RotoSounds) on the basses

    Re: New player and instrument

    Second the rec on MandoLessons.com.

    Resist the temptation to think of the mandolin as an upside down backwards guitar. It's a trap. Don't ask me how I know.
