  1. Re: Central Oregon - I need to try a Weber Yellowstone

    I'd like to help out, but the only Weber I've seen locally at jams and sessions (when we had them) was a Bitteroot A. Have never seen a Yellowstone in the High Desert. A trip to Albany (2+ hours)...

    Re: Is this how it starts?

    Is that a Bb? I toyed with buying one of those-played in the fourth grade for a bit-geez that was 66 years ago. Glad I went with the Anglo concertina instead. The clarinet was not my cup of...

    Re: Wegen vs. Primetone vs. Clown Barf

    I guess I'll weigh in. I typically use a rounded pick. I'll grant that a more pointed pick will get you a brighter, louder sound, but I just cannot do any form of tremolo with one. On the Muddies...

    A couple of non intelligent observations. 1) 12 string guitar vs mandolin string tension is way different with the mando being higher (tension) so harder to fret until you get used to it. 2) I...

  10. Re: Emotional hearing, and changing out my 7-year old strings...

    Hmm, interesting. Personally I hate changing strings-period. Mandolin, guitar, dobro, uke-doesn't matter; I just don't like doing it. So, usually my strings are way past due for changing and I...

    Re: Help! Drowned out by fiddles!

    I used to take a mandolin to the local "slow session". Slow? Not really. Anyway there are (used to be when we were still able to have the session) at least 4-5 fiddle players there. I gave...

    Re: Where’s the easy-does-it method?

    I feel the OP's "pain". I started and stopped playing mandolin about 3 times before it "took". I had played guitar about 12-14 years prior. I didn't have the problem with left (fretting) hand...
