    Re: To Cafe Members on the US West Coast

    I hope they nail whoever started it... nail them to the nearest fence post and let the buzzards have at 'em.

    Re: To Cafe Members on the US West Coast

    No disrepect taken; you make many valid points. It boggles my mind too that people will keep returning to and rebuilding in high-risk areas. I'm still new to this forum and wasn't aware this was a...

    Re: MuseScore software

    It seems pretty nice - I guess there will be some significant UI improvements in the works based on what I've heard, so it should be even better, I hope. I've been using Sibelius for a long time, so...

    So sad to hear. This situation is truly frightening; the air has been so swamped in smoke, yesterday, it was so dark with smoke it looked like twilight at lunchtime. We just can't catch a break...

    Re: Just received my first mandolin :)

    Welcome to the party! As others have said, it is an addiction; I practically have to force myself to put down the mandolin so I can get my practice time in on bass :)

    Re: Ideas for what could be rattling on Mandolin!

    My KM1000 does exactly the same thing but only if I play a bit harder. I noticed the action at the nut is very low, but it also does it on fretted strings, not just open strings, so not sure that's...

    Re: Steve Earl and his Gibson mandolins

    All that jewelry on his right wrist makes me cringe a bit with thoughts of it chewing up varnish and wood. Either way, big love to Steve Earle - another of the many reasons I wanted to play mandolin.

    Re: Better tone with light strings?

    I'm using EJM75C ("Medium Plus" Monel set) which are 11, 14, 25, 41. I love the "played-in" sound of the Monel strings (and their longevity), but my feeling on the 41 G is that it sounds a bit......
