    Re: How Chris Thile spends his sunday

    Thanks for the PDF—the article didn't make the Rocky Mountain edition of the print edition of today's paper.

    Re: Point of Diminishing Returns

    Just stop. If you have been playing for only a week, and are not coming to mandolin from guitar, violin, or another stringed instrument, 45 minutes to an hour is a long time. The hands and the mind...

    You think they're planned?
  8. Re: Thoughts on starter fiddles/transitioning to fiddle

    The curve of the bridge should echo the curve of the fingerboard, just like on a mandolin. Flattening the curve of the bridge may make some things easier but it will complicate others.

    Re: UPS rant

    Insurance claims get complicated. For several years I was the librarian for one of the orchestras I play with. We used rented parts for much of the music we played. Replacement cost for a score and...

    Re: UPS rant

    FedEx usually does OK but my last experience with them was disappointing. The shipper took my package to them Friday and the tracking said it was due Tuesday. Instead, they just let it sit at the...

    Go to the top of this site and click on the banner announcing Mel Bay's 40% off sale on books. They have about 20 pages of mandolin books, both paper and electronic. I would highly recommend Marilynn...

    Re: Classical Mandolin

    Looks like an LM-520 is an F5 type. Although the Fs are beloved by bluegrassers, Gibson originally designed them for classical players. You'll be just fine. You may have to experiment a bit to find...

    Re: Counting Tree Growth Lines ?

    If you happened to know a dendrochronologist he or she could answer all these questions. Kind of a niche field, though.

    Re: Rubner tuners are back

    My luthier wants to replace the tuners on my F-style with Rubners. They seem to be back in production for A-style, but last I heard it will be about the end of the year before Fs are available.

    Re: Gryphon is 50

    V70416, Candyman in Santa Fe. Originally guitars, records, then added stereo equipment. Stereos and LPs went the way of the brontosaurus, but they still have guitars, ukuleles, the odd banjo or...

    Re: Gryphon is 50

    One of the guitar, etc., shops around here had their 50th celebration a week ago. The first owner died about 10 years ago and a longtime employee bought the business. It seems like music stores...
