    I have an incomplete collection of these articles. Time to see what I missed!

    After seeing those posters I keep thinking about that Monteleone F5 in the classifieds for 25K and wondering how he can be so cavalier with it.

    Not so cavalier, Scotter! That 'Dawg Tricks' pose is with a Kentucky Dawg model (one of two that he kept for himself) that he later sold to me in 1991.

    Uhm, I'm calling pre-Photoshop cut and paste by the magazine layout staff vs. someone was actually photographing that.

    Well, that's a relief! But, now I kinda want a Kentucky Dawg model (I love my Buckeye F5 though!) for Dawg Tricks. Btw, the "Grateful Dawg" documentary is currently free on Amazon Prime.
    Play that which you feel is groovy, get down with your bad self, and shake your money maker if it makes sense for you to do so.

    Ordered... and... grateful there are artists/musicians/instructors who have respect for the "musician/student/mandolin player" and present spiral bound volumes. Much thanks.

    I’d like to thank all you mandolin players for the great response to these collections of my Frets columns! However thanks to an astute purchaser, I’ve realized that the last few bars of my tune “Learned Pigs & Fireproof Women” were inadvertently omitted, so we’ve corrected page 50 of “Artists & Repertoire” for the second printing. In the meantime we’re including the corrected column as an insert in the remaining copies of the first printing. For those of you who already have the books, here is a pdf of the corrected page.

    Well, I've had these 2 books for a few days now, and I just love them. I had perhaps 75% of the transcriptions/articles, as I was a FRETS subscriber for a good while. but I did not have all. And didn't even know about some of them, like the transcription for Salty Dog Blues (off Home Is Where The Heart Is), the Bob(by) Applebaum tune or the Clarence Nash piece. And my order came with the extra sheet inserted for LP&FW.

    Simply Marvelous. Thanks, Dawg!
