    Re: Vulfpeck - Thile appearance

    This world has gotten too uptight. This world needs more groovy music so we can all lighten up, get in touch with our joy and maybe even learn how to dance with abandon like hippies.

    Re: Vulfpeck - Thile appearance

    As I understand the word "pretentious",Chris Thile is surely not that.

    He was not attemting to impress by affecting greater importance,talent,etc. than he actually has.

    Re: Do We Really Need Another Pick Thread?

    I also like the Jazzmando picks. A Cafe member recently gave me several that have never been used. My main one is from over ten yrs ago and still shows no signs of wear. Excellent material.

    Re: Thile and Vulfpeck

    Thile's cover of a Talking Heads song backed up by Vulfpeck during the show was so good too.
