    Re: Position playing or shifting?

    NO, but it wouldn't hurt to be able to use it.

    Re: Position playing or shifting?

    It's to your benefit to use all of your fingers,I don't know how that can be argued,,some pros might have really high action,which explains using only your stronger fingers up the neck,,I think it's...

    Re: 1984 vs New Duff F5 Style Mandolin

    It used to be Mason William's guitar.

    Mark and Tyler are incredible pickers.

    Dorrigo Fiddle Tune

    Has anyone worked out the George Jackson tune Dorrigo on mandolin? A fiddler friend of mine introduced it to me. I've found it to be quite challenging (I'm still working on it). Some unusual...
  10. Re: Sunday picking sessions at my house are keeping me alive...

    You know, I’d like to keep my illusion that the whole Southeast is rife with mandolin pickers of every ilk, and every little Mom and Pop store has eight or ten for sale, and there’s a jam on every...
  11. Re: Sunday picking sessions at my house are keeping me alive...

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

    NERD FIGHT!

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

    We don't have to agree.

    Live From Here hangs on to its roots and a musical and radio-skit comedy variety show. Garrison Keillor had a point of view and a way of writing that made Prairie Home...
