    Re: Forgive me....for I have sinned.....

    Re: Marty Stuart's ex-Loar?

    Re: Marty Stuart's ex-Loar?

    I didn't play it but I did hold it and gave it a sniff a few weeks ago. It's in great shape. I was a little nervous just holding it.

    Re: Picking faster?

    11 time IBMA Fiddle Player of the Year Michael Cleveland is also one heck of a mandolin player. He really likes to mash on it. I've never heard him play it at a mortal human's tempo.
