    Nice article but yet another reminder that just because somebody works for a major publication it doesn't mean they know what they're talking about.

    To wit:

    He was already winning bluegrass competitions, playing the instrument with a remarkable precision and speed usually matched only by banjo pluckers and bluegrass guitarists. Playing the instrument of the genre’s inventor, Bill Monroe, he took it well past the role that Monroe and acolytes like Marty Stuart had established.

    Wait, what? Bluegrass guitarists were playing faster than mandolin players till Thile came along? And Marty Stuart- no disrespect!- is somehow the bluegrass mandolin avatar? That's just silly. Thile is great but the direct line from Monroe goes through Grisman, Statman, Bush, etc more than through- again, no disrespect to Mr. Connie Smith- Marty Stuart.

    Nice to know I’m not the only one with visible fretboard wear in the 20+ fret range.
