    Re: Andrew Marlin and Crew in Portland

    OK, what mandolin did Andrew play? Someone had to ask. :)
  2. Re: A tuner shootout: TC Electronic Unitune vs. Peterson StroboCl

    The Unitune in strobe mode is plenty accurate for me. I bought a Peterson and returned it. I use a pick to tune, so that's probably why it never worked for me.
  3. Re: Sunday picking sessions at my house are keeping me alive...

    That's what it's all about! Good food, good company, and good picking. Keeps us all alive.
  4. Re: Article: New Music from Mike Compton & Norman Blake: Gallop T

    The book has both standard notation and tab for mandolin.
  5. Re: Article: New Music from Mike Compton & Norman Blake: Gallop T

    Absolutely a gem of a recording, just stellar in every way. And the book provides a great resource for learning the tunes. Get them both!
  6. Re: Article: New Music from Gregg Daigle and Don Grieser - Palata

    Thanks. Yes, I wrote the Goat tune.
  7. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    Thanks, I wasn't sure if it was a Loar or Fern. Did that one get repaired or is it still like that?
  8. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    Love the look of that one. Also a big fan of slim/slender necks. So fast and easy to get around on.

    Didn't Ricky sand down a neck on a 20's Gibson till he exposed the truss rod? Seems like I...
  9. Re: Article: New Music from Gregg Daigle and Don Grieser - Palata

    There is one tune on my bog cedar top Girouard mandola. I wrote the tune right after getting the mandola and named the tune "Max and Lauri" for the builders. They definitely deserve a shout out!
  10. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    Tomorrow's show will have That Rhymin' Simon, yes, Paul Simon. And there will be video. I hope there's some mandolin on a Paul Simon tune or two.
  11. Re: Article: New Music from Gregg Daigle and Don Grieser - Palata

    Thanks! pheff: That back cover pic was taken about 20 years ago when I was younger and stupider. I found the right mandolin now.

    In case anyone wants to know, the mandolin is my 2010 Heiden A5...

    Re: Mandolin Close Ups

    In picture 5, your James tailpiece isn't closed all the way. Is it causing the buzz? Also, moving the truss rod should be done in minimal increments and allowed to settle before moving it again.

    Re: Mandolin Orange on today Show

    Always enjoy hearing MO.
  14. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    Joe, you can stream the audio of the shows at livefromhere.org -- they might be all archived there. You don't have to listen on the radio.

    I prefer catching the show when there's a live video...

    Re: What tune is this?

    Old Ebenezer Scrooge is one of the best tunes Monroe wrote.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5vvPJDgvco&t The first time through each part is fairly true to the way it was written.

    Re: My Last Days on Earth

    It does my heart good to hear young folks picking Monroe tunes. Great job, Gunnar!
  18. Re: Live From Here Joni Mitchell musicians' birthdays

    The show video is no longer available, but they were nice enough to put the Joni Mitchell birthday segment on youtube. At least skip to "A Case of You" as the last song. Knocks me out. Powerful.

  19. Re: Article: Guess the Mandolin Dawg is Playing, Win $100 Gift Ce

    I think I got the tracks with the oval. Telling the difference between Crusher and the Fern might as well have been a coin flip.

  23. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    Incredible show tonight!! The Joni Mitchell musicians' birthdays segment blew me away--Aoife especially, but the whole band just nailed everything about those songs.
  24. Live From Here Joni Mitchell musicians' birthdays

    The whole musicians' birthday segment featured Joni Mitchell songs. Aoife O'Donovan really nailed a couple songs. Skip to the middle of the video if you watch nothing else. Unbelievable renditions....
