    Re: Jazz Players

    Don's Soundslice courses are great. Highly recommended, along with all of his recordings.

    I haven't tried Matt Flinner's online courses, but if you want to hear some crazy good music try Walking...
  2. Re: Do mandolins respond to playing at the dusty end?

    I'm with Jim and Don, in that the biggest effect I've noticed is that after I play some instruments for a while, they sound much better because if I'm listening, they tell me how they need to be...

    Those are both very cool, and the pear overlay is great. I am totally loving that walnut.

    Re: Bridge foot marks/resale value

    I agree with Bob (more or less) - While I don't like to see them get marked up, most of the marks made from moving the bridge aren't too bad, and are often not really noticeable if you aren't looking...
  8. Re: NMD Collings MT2-0 (Pictures and a Christmas Tune)

    Congrats, and thanks for sharing that beautiful playing. I think the Collings oval holes are a thing unto themselves, so I get why you'd want to keep them both.

    Re: Avoid marking the top of your mandolin

    I think Eric is right about the friction.
    Also, the material they're made if could potentially react with your finish, causing a different kind of blemish. If it's got plasticizers in it, they can...

    As you say, the A8 has a good reputation for exactly what you're doing with it. I agree with Jim's advice - it's probably an excellent choice for your current purposes, and to build your skills (and...
