    Re: KM-1500 neck issue

    I’m with Adrian on Kentucky mandos. As for Glassweb’s comments, my 5 year old 1500 has plenty of “looks, tone, volume, playability, response and flamed woods” to suit me. Good bark too.

    Re: Mike Marshall's Loar?

    Just the other day MM played a cool rendition of Rice’s “Swing 51” with the Loar. He plays one or the other depending on the situation, methinks. If anyone is interested, the tribute is still showing...

  15. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Burns picked a perfect place to stop, though I was itching for him to take on Newgrass. He could have at least given us a taste! But most all of that newer stuff is available on youtube and...

  17. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Awesome thread about an awesome doc. Even my wife, who’s not that into country and especially not intoC and W, and who has little background in the bluegrass I play rather incessantly, is captivated.

    No. In general, I advocate doing what most players do, a little more elbow when playing chords, more wrist when picking. Check out David Benedict’s website or watch him on utoob. I just thought it...

    Re: Elbow or wrist...

    David B. is clearly resting his mando on something...first time I’ve seen that. Must try it myself. I think that seems to stabilize his mando and promotes more of the elbow, tomahawk action....
