    Jim Ruff sent this picture of his mandolin student Isabelle McCoy and her twist on what to do with a plain white Cafe Chord t-shirt. I like her style!

    Very nice. What are your thoughts about future runs of the same shirt, or a different style? I've got ideas. I'm sure a lot of people do, but I thought I'd see what you've been thinking.

    Oh dear... the pest is back...

    Alrighty, Scott... Now I mentioned this to you quite awhile back, but you brushed me off... #Here's the deal...(and please correct me if I'm wrong!

    The B flat chord on the M'Cafe tee shirt is wrong! #Is B flat, F, D, and E a B flat chord? #No! #(Perhaps I have a faulty tee-shirt?)

    Do you realize what you have? A rare, one-of-a-kind one-off misprint Mandolin Cafe t-shirt with the Bb inversion. Literally, this is a one in a million. This makes this shirt literally, priceless... You think a Loar is expensive? Pop that T on eBay and you'll be retired!

    (pssst--don't play an E note in a Bb, unless you like to annoy people).

    I put an X over notes in chords when I don't want the string played on the chord charts on the Cafe, but that seems to equally confuse a few even though I've spelled it out. Oh, well.

    You're not trickin' me, Scott... #No-sir-eee-bob... I'm hangin' on to my very valuable Tee...

    Funny... The most recent diddle I've been diddlin' with does indeed have a passage of "tri-tones"... #(Such as, from B-flat to E...) #Actually, I think they sound cool, depending upon the approach... #It's just a stupid song that I'm writing... #And tri-tones fit in there... #(well, to me, they do...)

    Back to the chord... Believe me... I tried that B-flat chord every which way... front, back, left-handed, tilted, upside-down, forward, backward, somersaulted, twirlygiged, inverted... #Nothing worked...

    And I still don't understand your chord charts!

    You don't play the string if there's an X on it. Mute it or play around it, just don't play ANY notes on a string with X on it.

    I like the look of the Cafe chords and the tie dye.

    Odnam, I didn't know you were having trouble understanding those "x"s! You are supposed to cross your fingers over top of that string...inverting or reversing your fingers if you will.
