  1. Re: Seeking "mournful" mandolin - like Levon Helm with The Band

    I hear a guitar doing a great job in emulating a vocal or saxophone line using tremolo. In the mandolin world David Grisman sometimes plays that way. Paul Buskirk comes to mind too. I have trouble...

    Re: crosspicking examples?

    Re: Old Levin, strings with green felt slugs

    I like chenille strings. With some kinds of tailpiece they look and work better than those silly grommets.

    Re: Please help! Fixing my pick direction

    Two tips to fix pick direction:
    *Don't play the tunes you've memorized the wrong way for a long time.
    *Practice the tunes and phrases you tend to mess up with a bounce.

    Re: Thile quote on resting hand on the bridge

    There is a reason for wanting to feel where the fleshy parts of your right hand are, and keep them ready.

    Re: Crosspicking

    I think Jesse McReynolds was always recognized as a brilliant and very versatile innovator. I don't think he ever got "branded" (does that mean labelled, in a negative way?) as a stylist by anyone. I...

    O boy, if that isn't a mandolin-banjo, I'm one.
    Anyone actually likes that sound beyond "peculiar"?

    I have all four, but I can't find 'solos', so maybe I have lent it to someone and forgot.
