    Re: Eastman md 304 vs 314

    Depends on which 304 or 314. Sound is the key not shape. If it sounds good and plays easily, that's the one you want.

    Re: Pete Sutherland RIP

    Pete was so much more than a fiddler or musician. He touched lives in a deep way. His songs were prayers like this one.

    Re: Fiddle Tunes with History?

    I reckon all fiddle tunes have history if they don't commemorate history. I've always thought that fiddle tunes were heirloom seeds, a treasure passed down from one generation to the next. If you...

    Re: What's your new fiddle tune?

    The late Dave Surrette's Belle of Newcastle. Yeah he was a mandolin player but it is a beautiful waltz played by some great fiddlers.

    Re: Lucille Ball plays tenor guitar

    I believe you are correct on all counts. Although those Kay and Harmony banjos do sound better than some.

    Re: Woke with a chord question

    Assuming you are playing with a guitar you are adding "ear candy" to what the guitar player is playing. So a three note combination has potential to extend the chord the guitar is playing. Chord...

    Re: Waxing the mandolin

    The only time I ever used wax it was Ren wax on a Tru oil neck on a banjo that stayed tacky many years after it was made. One quick light coat wiped on and off. Problem solved.

    Re: Tell me about Ibanez mandolins

    Re: Bourgeois M5A Mandolin

    I only played one but talked to people who played more. They were alive, perhaps cut too thick? Nice workmanship but they never caught on.

    As I only dabble in jazz, I do like to shade the melody with various chord voicings even in old time music, or especially old time music in a small setting. You can roll the harmonic shape of the...

    Re: Kylie Kay Anderson

    That's a Dunder Mifflin cup next to her. She's alright by me. She also hints at some Rodney Miller fiddle licks with the doublestops in her low octave run.
