    Default Wheel Hoss - Bill Monroe

    This is my favorite bluegrass tune to play. I like slowing it down a little to really make it groove.

    Very good, Bill. I enjoyed that.

    Oops, I called you "Bill" rather than Steve -- but, under the circumstances, you can take that as a compliment.

    Ha! That was awesome!

    I think I have the same mandolin - Eastman MD515-CS (classic sunburst version). Is that the CLA version?

    You wear it like a Fender Strat. (I'm a bored guitar player who's now focusing on the mandolin.)

    Any way to post pics here without using a 3rd party source?

    Thanks! Not sure what CLA is, I bought mine used.
    Yeah, I'm primarily an electric guitarist too...couldn't get use to the balance with the thin strap thru the scroll.
