    Re: My review: BILLY STRINGS ME/and/DAD

    Haven't listened to the new album yet, but saw Billy in Richmond on Wednesday and in Fairfax last night. Just phenomenal both nights.

    I fully anticipated this to be a bluegrass album.

    Re: Beginner Mandolin Questions

    I'm personally a fan of in-person lessons to start, but as others have suggested, that has more to do with what kind of learner I am rather than any inherent statement about which is better. I have...

    Bad headline. Implies that the judge decided Gibson's claims were not meritorious. Which is not what happened

    Re: Washburn mandolins

    My first mandolin was a Washburn I bought new in 2018. It sounded OK, pretty good for a budget mandolin. The playability was not great, even after a professional set-up. Maybe the setup wasn't...

    Re: Banjo or banjolin?

    I don't know if Pig ever played a banjolin, much less this particular one, but he did own a play a variety of instruments that he did not (usually) play on stage. Mostly guitar, which he loved...

    Re: How to “woodshed”

    Don't have a whole lot to add on the woodshedding as I'm also not the most organized practice person and don't play Irish Trad.

    I have done a fair amount of fly fishing for trout in that area of...
  9. Re: good mando shops in Ohio, West Virginia, and Virginia

    Welcome to our fair city of Charlottesville. The closest really good mandolin shop to Charlottesville is Picker's Supply in Fredericksburg, which is about another 1:20-1:30 farther east. They do...
  10. Re: What Happened to Dominick Leslie in Golden Highway?

    I don't really know. I asked in a Facebook group and that is what I was told. Of course it is possible it was another music project or the person who told me just got it wrong. Anyway, he did come...
  11. Re: What Happened to Dominick Leslie in Golden Highway?

    I've been watching a lot of those Golden Highway videos since they started on tour.

    Apparently he was skipping some dates due to playing with Hawktail. He has missed some dates and then come back...

    Re: JD Crowe

    To be fair, I think John Prine dropped out of carrying the mail to play music.

    Phil Lesh drove a mail truck for a while too.

    Re: Best Beginner Book

    I'd submit that there are lots of good books and if you narrow down your focus a little you might get better suggestions. I'm guessing you might be interested in bluegrass since you also play banjo....

  17. Re: 5 Minute Mandolin and Banjo Mandolin Course

    That's good. Unless somebody comes up with a 4 minute Mandolin and Banjo Mandolin course. Then you're in trouble, huh?

    No! No, no, not 4! I said 5. Nobody's comin' up with 4. Who learns Mandoln...

    Fretwell Bass in Staunton specializes in basses (obviously) but they do sell mandolins. They occasionally have some nicer instruments but it is definitely a call before you go, as they don't keep...

    Re: Where to go shopping?

    Longer than a couple of hours, but you are within driving distance of Nashville and a trip would give you more options than anywhere else.

    Failing that, depending on your timeline, you could wait...
