    Very handsome. Heiden does beautiful work, and the few I've played have been wonderful instruments.

    Re: more accurate clip on tuner than Snark?

    I've used a bunch and settled on the TC Electronic Polytune a few years ago. Works great.

    The tuning fork approach is fine if you have trained your ear properly and you play in places quiet...

    Re: recommend me an acoustic bass

    I have an Epiphone El Capitan acoustic bass guitar that was cheap and does the job. With an amp, it sounds reasonably fat, and it can stand on its own acoustically in a quiet session with a couple...

    I've been using D'Addario strings for 40 years or so, too -- lots and lots of sets in a really busy year of gigging. I have had some bad batches on rare occasions. I typically buy 10 sets at a time,...

    Re: Better tone with light strings?

    For me, it all depends on the circumstances/setting of where I'm playing the instrument. If it's mostly around home or in a small ensemble, I like the way light-gauge strings feel and sound, plus I...

    Re: Stolen Mandolin

    Congratulations!

    Just for curiosity, where was the mandolin when it was stolen (home, car, gig)?
  11. Re: i think this would be such a cool tune to play on mandolin

    The late Al Berard, a Cajun multi-instrumentalist and all-around good guy, played a lot of traditional Louisiana music on mandolin. Never heard him do any Creole or Zydeco music per se, but it...

    Fun!

    Here's a version of "U.S. Blues"

    Re: The Hollies - Look Through Any Window

    I think the actual title is "Dear Madame Barnum," not "Mrs." Great song from one of my favorite XTC albums. Seems like XTC has remained in the shadows over the years because Andy Partridge stopped...

    Re: Leather Calton Case Cover

    As mentioned above, Glenn Cronkhite makes the best cases and covers I've ever used. Not cheap, but built to last for a career. Choice of five leathers and eight Corduras, lots of options.

    The Hollies were one of many Merseybeat bands who came up at roughly the same time as the Beatles. They were from Manchester, mainly, but as early as '63 they were playing the Cavern Club in...

    Me, too. Very fast and no slippage. Faster to take old strings, off, too, with fewer wraps around the post.

    Re: "A Bruxa"

    FWIW, I recorded a setting of that quite a few years ago now with Moving Cloud Orchestra, with me on mandolin, Sara Hiebert on fiddle, Paul Machlis on piano. Live in a recital hall, warts and all.

  25. Re: Does anyone like the new green blue chip picks?

    If you like it on the picante side, try the new red ones -- a zesty blend of cayenne and habanero. They'll make for some hot pickin' for sure. Also available today only.
