    Nobody, I would leave the mountain in its natural state and ride my fat bike there with a mandolin slung over my shoulder and have a picnic and play old-time music once I get to the summit.

    Here’s a take nobody’s taken yet.

    Monroe, Grisman, Burns, Avital.

    Reasoning: originated Bluegrass style, originated Newgrass style, pioneered multiple styles and popularized the instrument, and argueably the greatest Classical artist.

    Plenty of runners up. Thile the genius, Hull the gender barrier breaker, and what about that guy who played the solo for Rod Stewart’s “Maggie May”? Who has ever played a more famous mandolin solo than that one?

    Can't you think of some monument less abhorrent than Rushmore? Some consider it an abomination.

    I think this is just another way of naming who you feel are the most influential players to you, the responder.

    Appolon, Monroe, Burns, Loar
    I recently finished a new homemade 4-song EP of original solo acoustic songs; (sorry, no mandolin content this time). If you are interested in a FREE copy, feel free to send me your address via Private Message, and I will be glad to send you one. Trust me, it will be worth the price!

    Orville, Lloyd, Monroe and Grisman

    And ... for the Bluegrass "Rushmore" I'd have five busts: Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, Ralph & Carter Stanley

    It becomes tough

    I wonder should two of them be Orville Gibson and Lloyd Loar... it's not easy, is it?

    Dave Apollon, Jethro Burns, the new Israeli mandolin school, and lots of Italians. Maybe that Monroe guy.

    Monroe goes on the mountain, the rest go on the foothills.

    When we drove across the country to move to Oregon 26 yrs ago, we stopped at Mt. Rushmore along the way. It amazed me t hat there were people actually taking VIDEO of it (I guess trying to catch one of them winking).
