    Re: Woodstock

    Was just shy of my 13th birthday in a particularly miserable summer of my young life, as I recall (very awkward age, had just finished summer school having flunked 7th grade math, and right after...

    Re: Mandolin Influences

    Hey Bernie, I appreciate your admiration of Jeff -- but please be careful before pronouncing people dead (and of AIDS, no less!).

    Re: Really need to work on my right hand

    I'm still pretty new at the mando myself (just 14 months in), but I recently read something that might be apropos:

    Re: Do people ever change their strings?

    Re: Favorite Doc Watson albums

    From a pure pickin' standpoint, I always liked the instrumental trio album Doc did with Lester & Earl. Good one to study and learn from if you're a guitarist trying to learn his style.
