    Mandopete- I sure did get to go inside, and next to the fireplace where they said Bill first heard his Uncle Penn play the fiddle, laid an old mandolin, of which I noodled. It was an incredible experience, only an hour or so north of Nashville. I also took a picture of my wife rocking my littlest one in the same chair that Bill Monroe's mother used to rock him, but for some reason that picture had a huge blur in it and it did'nt come out. We drove on top of Jerusalem Ridge and just looked at the hills (kids were bored at this point). But what made even more special is picking with Cambell Mercer, that was a thrill. Then an older gentlemen pulled up and he said used to play guitar with Bill in the 50's and we got to play a few songs with him.

    If you get chance, go and pay homage.

    Here I am last Sunday night fulfilling a lifelong dream sharing the stage with Frank Wakefield! What a great experience.

    ..heres a pic of myself, Brian and my son at BRW Instruments. Thats my son,Ryan with my new(at the time) BRW F5C #20...Brian in the middle with a '23 Loar and me holding a '25 Fern. I also want to add to the Frank Wakefield experience. Frank used to come to town when I was younger. His sister lived in the same town I do..I think she is deceased now. My dad and frank go way back. Frank used to call when he needed a straight man for his shows and he would teach me the harmony parts on some of his tunes. We done many a concert together. Brian can probably tell you many a story on frank also. Frank is truly an American Icon...he should be, along with Red Allen in the Bluegrass Hall of Fame..

    I couldn't agree more! Great to see these pictures and hear the stories about Frank. One my friends got to jam with him onstage at a concert a couple of years back. Seems like this is not an uncommon experience. From my perspective, I think it was probably the influence of Frank Wakefield that helped to create what we now call Dawg music

    ..yea before there was Dawg there was Frank. There is also another mando player that alot of people have never heard of and thats Dorsey Harvey...Dave Harvey's dad...now there was a player....him and Frank could really light 'em up when they got together...sadly Dorsey has passed away...Monroe may have pioneered "the" style but Frank and Dorsey blazed the trail

    This is really what Pete Goodall looks like. He's a two fisted mandolin player.

    Touche Pete; good one. I think you stole that from The OBA site, and that will cost you a one year subscription.

    Takes a lot of grease to get hair looking like this. Not nearly as much (hair) these days...

    Mad Dog (Jim) -

    Thanks for your kind comments. The little thing is a blast to play. I'm looking forward to getting its three siblings completed. They'll hopefully sound even better - and will look a LOT better! I've got some stunning curly maple and Engelmann spruce.

    - Rick
