    Re: Vintage?

    Re: Crosspicking vs "the Other Kind"

    It should also be said that crosspicking can also be a rhythm method and a fill method. You can do a crosspicking roll to arpeggiate chords without the melody either all the way through a piece,...

    Re: David Grisman's Acoustic Oasis Web Site Launches

    Re: Happy 75th Birthday Today, David Grisman!

    First he and Tony's EMD blew my head off, then he showed me the way to Barstow while Janice was cooking in the background.

    Can you change the tailpiece? Sure. Will it improve the tone? Probably as much as changing to a different strap would. I hope you'll hear a difference if you do it because I hate to see folks spend...
