    Re: Disappointed with the Nashville music scene

    Even in Nashville bluegrass is a niche market just like everywhere else. But from my trip in 2016, it seems that the Sunday nite open jam at the Station Inn is very grassy.

    Re: Ellis A5?

    Nicely turned out! I love the slightly bigger guard on that shape. Like a mini-jumbo thang. Please post us a sound clip if you can!

    Re: Helpful inlay advice

    Made the same mistake while checking out the back of a shallow cave. I was sure it was a rattler and banged my head on the low ceiling.

    Nice concept Dan. I have heard angling/tilting the pick forward described a few different ways. Filming from the pickers perspective really showed how this affects the mechanics of picking both the...

    Re: Passernig #49 Update

    Congrats Don! Killer chop for sure. Lot's of pop in the single note stuff. To my ears it sounds just like the Passernig A-style that was on the sound clips on Fiddlers Green, Austin Tx website. That...

    Re: New Tenor in the making.

    Looks great, and I am looking forward to hearing your sound clip. I had a friend who had a 1960s era Fender acoustic flat-top guitar that had a tube running through it in similar fashion. Can't...

  23. Re: Mando Tasting Notes... Wow. 35 Mandolins in a day.

    From that lineup I'd guess your trip included a stop at Carter's Vintage. If so, I may have played that same Heiden A5 in September. It was a top contender for me as well. I also loved an older...

  25. Re: Cleaning chalk after fitting dovetail.. suggestions?
