    Re: Better tone with light strings?

    I've definitely got too heavy of a picking hand for light strings in a jam setting. On my Flatbush mando which is an awesome one but a backup mostly, I put lights on it when my girlfriend was trying...

    Re: No motivation

    I've done one 3 person jam and that's it since March.
    I have pretty much lost interest in trying to do any gigs or the jams here even if they could be outdoors. They just aren't exciting me and...
  5. Re: When did you realize mandolin was your primary instrument?

    I started on guitar at age 16 in 2001. When I went to college, a friend had a cheapo mandolin and let me borrow it for the weekend. I was hooked right away!
    I still play some guitar but from that...
  6. Re: Mandolin Orange live streamed performance yesterday

    It was a great show, really well done video and sound. They were in Asheville at Echo Mountain recording studio. I too was a little disappointed not to see the Loar, but also surprised how much I...

    Re: Heads up for you Mandolinists with Cats

    Thanks for the warning. I do have tiger lillies outside the front walkway area, but I don't have a cat.
    Probably easier to just keep the flowers and not risk it by getting one. :cool:
  10. Re: How did the "curl" on the mandolin body evolve?

    I like F style mandolins, but I don't go around talking trash about how "Silly" of a "bad taste" in design the A style is, because for some people it is exactly what they want. It's OK to have a...

  12. Re: Anybody going/been to Alan Bibey Mandolin Camp?

    Like AlanN, I have been to every year of AB Camp so far.

    Re: jams with friends during covid

    I've gotten together with my 2 band mates once in an outdoor and spacious setting. It was ok. Now NC has a mask requirement for public places.

    Re: Mike Marshall The Movie

    :)) there you go!
    I'd watch it, and given Netlfix's most recent movies, it probably isn't too far fetched of a pitch.

    Ronnie McCoury could play Dawg, he really had the look going with his...

    Interesting. When I talked to Tony about getting one for my Eastman mandola he seemed to think it wouldn't work too well.

    Re: Four Finger Chop Chords and the Pain!

    You can honestly get 90+% of the sound of a 4 finger G chop by just using the two low strings and being careful not to hit the high strings.
    If you play it with your second and third finger then you...
