  2. Re: Thile/PB - "How to Sing/Play With Others" (and no Tone Gard!)

    I really like Aoife's "Fossils" CD. Haven't heard her latest CD yet. Kudos to Sarah for not wearing cowboy boots on video #1. That Thile guy is pretty good. :))

    Re: "...for Dummies" books any good?

    I found "Mandolin for Dummies" to be very informative and helpful. It is dense with great info and is a pleasant read. As another has said above, the sound clips are also really helpful. I would...

    Re: Looking for info on this "Gibson"?

    In my experience, it's very easy to swap parts and reconfigure mandolins. I don't fuss with changing or re-graduating top plates, necks, and such. It takes too long. I just keep the tailpieces,...

    Re: New Fender (casein?) Pick

    Received my Fender "Tru-Shell" extra heavy (style 346) picks from Elderly today. They are the medium brown color and there are no apparent defects or sloppy manufacturing. I compared it to my CT55...

    Re: Differences among music genres?

    Agree Jeff. Genres are important to being able to talk about music. I see the need for them - even if I wish there wasn't a need. Stereotypes really bug me. "I hate Disco!" then someday I hear a...

    Re: Differences among music genres?

    When people used to ask me (frequently) what "type" of music genres I liked, I always got a little dumbfounded. My standard answer today is, "Some uh this and some uh that." As one who writes songs...

    Re: Differences among music genres?

    Love the question!

    Not wanting to brag here, but I have created a brand new genre. For real. It's based, in a major way, upon my lackadaisical attitude regarding practice, my aversion...
  12. Re: The Traveling Pick Sampler - Anyone Interested?

    I'm not evil Timbo. And to prove it, I'm willing to send you 5 brand new, silver engraved picks that were gifted to me from the little glass pudding dish at the check out counter in the ABC Music...

    Re: Complex mandolin

    I'm with you on it being subjective, but it's not only subjective. It's factual. I think it does boil down to "how much" and "what kind" of complexity is most appealing to one's ear. It's been said...
  14. Re: The Traveling Pick Sampler - Anyone Interested?

    I'll have to get back to you that. The Fender picks haven't arrived yet. It should take about a week or so. The shipping was $2.95. They call it a small parcel rate because I only ordered the picks....
  15. Re: The Traveling Pick Sampler - Anyone Interested?

    When the sampler gets to me, I'll be adding the new Fender "Tru-Shell" pick. I ordered a few of the extra heavy in 346 style. I've got others to add, but just don't know which yet. :grin:

    Re: Complex mandolin

    It's my Weber octave with rich, deep, poignant and resonant bass, sparkling highs with lots of sustain, and a beautiful clear treble. Plenty loud, but not the same kind of loud you'd get from a...

    Re: Bevelled Edge Picks?

    My BC CT55 (beveled) is brighter than my DAWG but really darn close to a Primetone. I use the BC 95% of the time.

    I agree to case it. In my location, the humidity bounces up and down this time of year with afternoon thunderstorms and dry, hot sunny days. I also turn my AC on and off quite a bit. I know the...

    Yeah. You guys with the "A" models can always use a confidence boosting compliment like that. I would have said the same thing. :)):)):))

    Hi Keith. Playing every day for one month and noticing a big change in tone would make "me" suspect the strings if you are still using the same set. It has been said that many strings will have a...

    I know that a lot of people already know this, but after breaking MANY new .011 "e" strings while tuning, it finally occurred to me that I should try initially tuning them much more slowly. I...
