    Aspen #1 Flat top

    I love mandolins and especially love flat top mandolins. I have an older Weber Aspen #1 (1997) coming and would like to know your experience with this mandolin and what strings you like using. ...

    Re: Speed

    Just a comment. I have noticed in myself that when I play with the most speed it catches me by surprise. That means to me, that the ability to play fast is a product of being unaware and relaxed. ...

  22. Re: Lose grip on a thick pick or use a thin pick?

    Thank you all so much for your thoughts and input. I am now using a BC TAD 80 and love the sound it produces. I, probably, will never be very fast because I just don't have the "fast twitch"...
