    Mowry siblings, 13 years apart!

    I was able to commission an A-style mandolin from Andrew Mowry back in 2009, a decision based on all the great things I read about his work here on the Cafe (in addition to seeing Andrew's generous...

    Wow, you are aptly named, Explorer! :)
  4. Re: Anyone tried this mandolin-friendly guitar tuning?

    It actually sounds & feels really good. I think the large body of the drednought helps in producing the very low tones, and the longer scale (25.4") keeps the strings from feeling too flabby. I'm...
  5. Anyone tried this mandolin-friendly guitar tuning?

    Low to high: CGGDAE

    Re: Beginner getting into Bluegrass

    One answer to the question of "where to start" would be with Mike Marshall. Here's a favorite video that shows him trading solos on a fiddle tune:

    Re: Tim O'Brien`

    +1 on "Real Time" w/ Tim & Darrell Scott. And "Fiddler's Green" is a great, great record.

    He is, indeed, a fabulous guitarist. There's a Planet Bluegrass podcast where they interview him, and...
