    Re: Flora MacDonald

    Ranald, How do I PM you on the Cafe? Would love to see the notation you have. However, if it is the same as on The Session, than you needn't go thru with the effort.

    Has anyone worked out the notation for Flora MacDonald, especially Natalie MacMaster's fiddle version? I found a couple jpgs of some older versions, but not as lovely as Natalie's.

    Re: 1917 Gibson A "Mint Condition"

    This one is living at my house now. Very pleased with this very clean and sweet sounding instrument. Only thing I can find as an issue is it gets a bit sharp as you work your way up the fretboard.
