  1. Re: The Dilemma of Motivation, Attention Span, and Practice Regim

    As I read this thread, I get an image of the people I've trained, over the past 45-50 years. Often the missing ingredient, for those who don't progress, is accountability.
    To put a "why" in place:...
  2. Re: How much of a difference in sound does string gauge make?

    Interesting that little was said about types of music played! As a bluegrasser, it's been my experience that string sets, .038-.040 to .011-.0115, give more volume. The larger diameter also seems to...
  3. Re: Any BG or OT Jams on Hilton Head Island?

    Randy Wood's Music Store is in Bloomingdale, GA (less than an hour from Hilton Head). There is often a Saturday jam there! At trip to the store and to meet Randy is worth the time, even if the jam is...

    Re: Randy Wood Two-Point at Carter's

    Sometimes price and provenance ought to take a back-seat to the appreciation of art! The mandolin stands on it's own as a representation of the luthier's art! ...And, oh yeah, you can play it, too!

    Can you speak to the effect/affect of the sound hole, Steve?
    Thanks!

    Sadly, this would be entirely believable (aside from April 1), knowing both entities (Gibson and the US judicial systems)!

    Re: The cure for MAS

    My wife (RIP <3) had a pretty good deterrent: One-in-one-out. It controlled my MAS for a while, till I figured (dummy that I am) that she never checked the cases as I took them out! Even after losing...

    Re: Sirius Satellite Bluegrass

    I started listening to and playing BG in the mid-60's, and was fortunate to see most of the 1st generation bluegrassers. With the exception of live music (of which there was plenty in the N.Virginia,...

    Re: Mando upgrade - opinions sought

    IMHO, this question has little to do with value, sound, craftsmanship, affordability or practicality! It's all about MAS! Quit trying to justify; buy!

  15. Re: Powergrass does "Blue Night" fro Poland

    Good music is just good music! If I was lookin' for straight-ahead bluegrass, as I usually do, it wouldn't satisfy me. If I was just listenin', or lookin', it works! Thanks for sharing this!...

    Re: Regal Deco Mandolin Circa 1939

    Thanks for posting that link, Nick! Although not a Lloyd Loar or an Embergher (sic), that Regal is a great looking period piece, even if just as a wall- hanger! Love to have it!

    Re: Slow Jam Tips Needed

    Hey, Bunny! Maybe there's something in Wernick's Jam Camp material that will be useful? I'm not suggesting you buy into the Jam Camp business, merely that there may be some ideas you can use!...
  22. Re: What are your favorite albums featuring mandolin?

    +1 for Mandolin Duets - Casey Campbell...diverse sampling of mando styles (granted: leans toward Bluegrass; but...only instrumental duets!)
    Didn't see Sierra Hull mentioned... perhaps Weighted Mind...
  23. Re: When did you realize mandolin was your primary instrument?

    I came to that realization in "66, when, to keep playing in a band with my friends, who played guitar and banjo, my choices were fiddle, bass or mandolin! Fiddle: at the time, strangling cats; bass:...

    Thanks for telling your story, Ben! This pandemic has dealt blows - some unrecoverable; some tests! Sounds to me like you're handling your test, and my bet would be, you'll pass!
