    To my knowledge, he hasn't made the Kid-Mos in years. Looks like a MidMo but has a bolt-on neck and everything is smaller but not as small as the old Holdrio piccolo in my profile pic. I happened...

    I use my Evelyn's Big Book for Mandolin (she now has 3 out) for sight-reading practice. The tunes range from simple signature/rhythm to more challenging, so you can pick what you want to read. A nice...

    Re: Mid Missouri/Big Muddy Mini Mo.

    I don't have the Mini Mo but we do have the Kid-Mo. Not at all the same, but in case anyone stops by here thinking you are asking about the small mando, I want to say that it is pretty great. It's my...

  6. Re: Pain in left wrist after playing mandolin

    My one "mandolin injury" forced me into a slight obsession with ukuleles during my rest period, so be careful and get medical advice soon. Good luck for a speedy recovery.

  8. Re: Czech Hymnbook for fingerpicking CGDA musical instrument

    I just received my book today and am happy to say that the hymns (at least the first 5) are not too difficult for me. I'm slow, of course, but with practice can get smoother. My tenor guitar is...

    Re: Score for "I Never Will Marry"

    MusicNotes.com, and likely other sheet music places, has it in her original key, Bb. Usually the music there can be transposed before purchase, but I noticed this one is available in Bb only and does...

  13. I was out and about today, stopped by two...

    I was out and about today, stopped by two 7-Elevens and two Circle Ks. Looks like the CD hasn't made it to the OKC metro, which, of course, makes me want it all the more.
  14. Re: Evelyn's Big Book for Mandolins 2015

    A hearty thanks to Martin for occasionally posting 3- or 4-part instrumentations of some of Evelyn's arrangements in the SAW group. That's how I found these books. And a big thanks to Evelyn for...

    Re: Tennis Elbow and Mandolin Pickin'?

    I, too, had a trigger that began my tennis elbow, and even after giving that up, playing the mandolin continued to aggravate it for 3 more years. A member here told me about Salonpas (I used small),...

    I second Baldassari's Evergreen, but the one that actually gets the most play is Brian Oberlin's Christmas Solo Swing. There is something about one man singing with his mandolin, and nothing else,...

    I understand your excitement, Ruby. I had always used one of those flimsy wire stands until three years ago when my daughter gave me this stand. It has never tipped over, it can hold an assortment of...
