    Heck yeah! I've had the great good luck to see Thile live twice in the past three weeks for outdoor solo shows. The new record should be a treat.

    Oh yeah! Beautiful composition and playing. I vote for Brian's "Couch surfing on the event horizon".

    Unlike Cheryl, I did not quite get every note right - if only we had that pick information...

    "The 10 Fret Stretch", or "Have Fun Transposing This to Am".

    Thanks Mr. Thile, keep them coming.

    How about “Couch surfing on the event horizon”?

    What pick are you using?

    Now that was a surprise! Happy 250th. My how time flies.

    I don't know how I was able to play every note right along with Chris, in unison, the first time through.
    Thank you, Chris, for gorgeous, creative, piece and for doing Mandolin Monday!

    Welcome, Chris!

    And special congratulations to David Benedict for hitting another milestone with Mandolin Mondays #250, one of the great things going on in the mandolin world. Here's a toast of fine morning coffee to the next 250!

    Can’t believe you didnt get a response, try posting your questions in the forum (General Mandolin Topics), where most posters hang out. To quote the author: “email and put Mandolin Setup in the subject line.” You’ll get a free download of Rob’s mandolin setup handbook, which everyone raves about.

    Welcome to the Cafe!

    Nice picking Lucy. That Doug Clark Mandolin sounds super as well.

    Well done! Your picking and that mando both sound great, and I like that floating right hand technique as well.
