    Re: Women with Mandolins

    Here's a dandy cover of Neil Young's "Harvest Moon" by AJ Lee and the Brothers Comatose. AJ is a great player and singer, and the BC provide superb backup and harmonies.

  2. Re: David Crosby comments on tuning in Fretboard Journal

    It's an interesting and endless conversation. While I do do a tiny bit of tempering on the guitar depending on the key I'm playing in, I've found that, in general, I spend a whole lot less time...
  3. Re: Do you take your best or most valuable mandolin to gigs?

    I rarely play anywhere with any risk factors these days -- no rowdy bars for me -- so I want my favorite mandolin with me, especially if that's the main thing I'm playing on a particular gig. I have...

    Essential David Grisman

    Here's a piece I did for the San Francisco Classic Voice for our "Essentials" series of great recordings. It was nearly impossible to choose just a dozen Dawg selections, but it was fun to try. What...

    Re: Stan Miller Brazilian rosewoods

    Nice! I had one of the those Miller rosewood F-5s -- made just before the one John Reischman played before he got his Loar. Mine a very light stain on both the front and the back and the rosewood...

    Re: RIP Arthur Stern

    Yes, very sad loss. He was a kind, talented, and generous guy. Saw him just before the pandemic when he dropped by the house. I helped him set up a nice old Strad-O-Lin with a new bridge and fresh...
  8. Re: Seeking Mando Tab for Traffic's "Low Spark of High Heeled Boy

    Cool. It's a terrific song. We've been playing at Wake the Dead shows lately. We've got a pretty unusual arrangement, with mandolin, octave mandolin, guitar, bass, percussion, and uilleann (Irish)...

    Re: Mandolins in the Movies

    Murray is actually pretty understated and apt in this one, basically doing an interpretation of the dour Harold Ross (co-founder of The New Yorker and its longtime editor-in-chief).

    Ventured out the movie theater for the first time in a couple of years and saw Wes Anderson's latest, The French Dispatch. The soundtrack has snippets of mandolin and some sort of picked banjos...

    Re: Always use a strap? Even when seated?

    Yes. Always. Just keeps things consistent and takes most unnecessary stress of the left hand/arm.

    Re: Marlon Brando playing a mandolin!

    Pretty hard to see -- it's a nighttime campfire scene -- but here's Brando with a mandolin in Missouri Breaks.

    Re: New carbon fiber mandolin builder

    If the price point is right, I'd be very interested, as long as the tone and volume is sufficient and the instrument is playable. The one carbon-fiber (Mix) instrument I tried out was very...

    Very nice!

    The chart above is about a year old, but you'll note the very highest paying services only offer about a penny a play. The $.35/play figure suggested in a post above was off by two decimal...

    I've used a bunch and settled on the TC Electronic Polytune a few years ago. Works great.
