    Re: Changing strings to help fingertips

    Lighter strings will help but also see Pete Martin's (free) mandolin basics video on left hand technique. The section on finger pressure when fretting.

    Re: Apitius Yorkville

    Thanks for posting that, Steve. It sure is a nice looking and nice sounding mandolin.

    Re: NMD road trip!

    Oh yes, I can see the BRW now - the shot in the Newbies thread makes it hard to see the BRW on the peghead and the label. Congratulations! I think a 2-point is an excellent compromise between the...

    Re: Looking for Sheet Music

    Steve's suggested site is great. One tip: sometimes, the whole tune does not show up on the web page but if you click on the button to download a pdf of the tune, the whole tune will be in the pdf.

    Re: Three string chords - good and bad?

    Caleb Klauder says he does this a lot. Rarely plays chop chords or even chop rhythm for backup. Of course, I don't think many folks would say that Caleb is a bluegrasser - more like "old timey".

    Re: Waverly's on an Older Red Diamond A

    I should think Stew-Mac could tell you what the base metal is. I doubt that it is gold (or even gold-ish). I have no thoughts on OCD though.

    I do like the composition (and the presentation).

    I thought that a recording was being made and would be available to attendees. But I can't find if it was. When we got to the tunes at the end of the session I was kind of saturated and would really...

    Re: Are travel mandolins worth it?

    I was tempted with a Martin Backpacker a couple of years ago. I thought I needed it. Then I played it and, well, blah. And after I held it in my hands I realized that it was not going to make travel...
  21. Re: Floating Top Guitar, very interesting.

    Re: Cases and covers

    No, no, no, no -- the case cover is soft and easily torn. Don't cover it with something equally soft and fragile. You need something hard and durable. Thus you need a case cover case. (which might...
