    Wait until you retire and can do it several times a day. Just sayin' :)
  2. Re: Y'all missed some great mandolin playing in Asheville

    Man, I would LOVE to make it to one of their gigs - sadly, none even remotely near us. Maybe next time. From what I'm hearing about these shows, seems like this may not wind up being a one-off tour.

    Re: Like this site but for guitar....

    Wow, those were some good days back on flatpick-l!! So far back I couldn't even put a date on it. It seemed so leading-edge at the time LOL.

    Re: Rockin' the Dulcimer!

    I have a gifted musician friend who used to plug his Appalachian Dulcimer into a small practice amp and crank out The Star Spangled Banner a la Jimi Hendrix - it is a wonder to behold!

    Re: Improvising

    What a fantastic idea! I have done this while mindlessly noodling around with various tunes, but never thought to do it in any organized manner. This could be a great ear-opener.

  8. Re: The Guitars (and Mandolins) of Ken Burns' Country Music

    What has amazed me is the number of Fender Shenandoah guitars (with the Stratocaster-style peghead) that keep popping up. I didn't know anybody except the VERY young Neil Diamond ever played one of...

    Re: String journey on a Collings MT

    I've always been a huge fan of D'Addario strings on both guitar and mandolin. Electric, acoustic, you name it. But when I was going through this same journey, I felt the D-Addario EFW74 flatwounds...

    Re: Over the Rainbow chord melody

    I would think that working your way through any of Aaron Weinstein's chord melody arrangements would exercise and stretch every stinkin' finger you've got. :D

    Re: TC Electronic Polytune Clip-on Tuner

    I bought the polytune, use it on both guitar and mandolin. As others have said, the 'polytune' feature only works on guitar. I personally don't think that feature adds all that much value anyway. One...

    If you are talking about setup work, the other indispensable tool in my personal opinion is the StewMac String Spacing Gauge. I can't imagine slotting a nut without it.
