    Thanks Scott, great idea with a great result. Is there a way for the general public to order a John Reischman Red Bear Pick?

    Trey, I didn't know the answer to your question so I've emailed Red Bear and asked. There's a representative from there that frequents our forum so the chances are good they'll answer.

    What a great interview. John is such fantastic musician, tone monster and genuine guy and what a great web-site.

    That picture (in the interview) of Mandofest sure brings back great memories! My nephew and I were lucky and got to drive John Reischman and John Miller back to airport after the conclusion of Mandofest and you won't meet two nicer guys. As I was dropping them off at the gate, John R gave me about fifty pages of music to work on based on our conversation en route to the airport.

    We are all so fortunate to have the Mandolin Cafe and hats off to Scott for all his efforts.

    Thanks John and Scott.

    I'm in a dead heat with John over his transcribing of "Up in the Woods"...he told me about it at Blueberry back on August 2, and I'm 4 tunes in. My faves so far are the title track and "Eighth of February"...now, to just get that TONE.

    Great project and good info. Enjoyed it very much. It's cool to learn that John is an old-time music fan. It certainly comes through in his playing. And that mandolin collection......nice!!

    Thanks for the work put into this Scott. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series!

    Hi Folks,

    I am pleased to see John's interview and the response it has garnered. Very cool! John certainly is one of my favorite mandolin players. I love the tone he gets from his Loar.

    Regarding his pick, it is a slightly oversized style "E" in medium gauge, no grips, and a left hand bevel. He always orders in the Red Jasper color. These picks are easily obtainable from us - simply purchase a style "E" in medium with left-hand bevels and the red color and then note that you want the "John Reischman version" when you order. You may or may not want the left-hand bevel. Please make sure you know which bevel to get, if any. If you have any questions, please email or call and we'll be happy to get you straightened out. In short, if you tilt your picking hand toward the headstock when you play, then you need a Right-Hand bevel. If you tilt your hand back so that on the downstroke, the bridge side of the pick hits first, then you need a Left-Hand bevel. If you hit flat on the strings ala Andy Statman, then you need no bevel, which is what we refer to as a "Standard Bevel".

    I hope this helps. Again, please email or call if you need more. We're always happy to oblige.

    Regards,
    Dave Skowron

    Thanks Scott. I really enjoyed the interview and look forward to your next project.

    Looking forward to seeing John in concert in about 3 weeks, maybe I'll have some follow up questions for him.

    Great interview! Thanks Scott and John.

    Well, John R. is self-taught, never spent too much time on scales, was unafraid to put a radiused board on a Loar, and chooses Red Bear picks! Heard from the horse's mouth right here on the cafe!

    Personally,i can't wait for the 'Up In The Woods' transcriptions,especially as it will contain "The Eight of February",a tune which i've got down around 90% accurately,but i'd sure like to get to grips with the other 10%. I hope we'll be well notified when the transcriptions are available. Many thanks for this Scott,great to hear from one of my 2 favourite players & i'm still hoping that he may be teaching at next year's Sore Fingers Summer School in the UK.
    His self-teaching regime almost exactly parallels what i've done all my playing days,so it seems i've been doing something right at least,
