    Re: Tune from The Mandolin Store Site

    That video proves the old adage that even a flyaway pinkie can be trained to go where it is needed when it is needed. And if it's not an old adage, maybe it ought to be.

    Unfortunately my pinkie...

    FYI, I just went to mandozine and found that the tab files are back up again. Thank you to whoever makes that possible.

    I am a whittler, not a luthier. So, FWIW:

    Re: Mandolin Banjo?

    I have a Vega Little Wonder. I do like it but I don't play it much. It had a torn head when I got it, six years ago. I am pretty sure I have not replaced the strings since installing a new head. I...

    Re: Mandolin Newbie

    Welcome to the cafe! I had a Tacoma up until a few years ago. I really liked it. But I decided I was getting too old to climb in and out of it so I traded it for an Avalon.

    Seriously - I'd like to...

    You will probably get better answers than mine, but if not, here goes:

  13. Re: Making the A and E strings less "pingy" and general newbie re

    Those Ernie Ball strings are very light, even for being labelled as "Light". Most would call them extra light. A lot of folks use D'Addario Mediums (EJ74) as a good all around inexpensive set of...

    Well I finished the whole video and really enjoyed it. Thanks again. My favorite came just at the end when they were taking requests and Ralph responds to one yelled from the audience -- "We don't DO...

    It's awful fuzzy at full screen, but the peghead logo looks un-Gibson-y. Maybe it's time for me to visit the eye doctor again.

    I would hate for one of my mandolins to spring a leak and me without a patch. I probably ought to have several on hand "just in case."
