    Re: Best Place to Sell aside From Classifieds

    I just shipped a mandolin from Minneapolis, MN to Bellingham, WA USPS Overnight insured for $5K (maximum available). $175. UPS or FedEx will be more. If you are willing to expose it to longer times...

    There are a number of hard working and dedicated online and brick and mortar retailers who sell mandolins, guitars and all kinds of accessories. They often take risks carrying arcane inventory and...

    A really fine and revealing interview.

    I traveled from Wisconsin twice to the "city" and took detours both times to Staten Island to see Mandolin Bros. - an institution whose ads I have watched,...

    Just have to add - after inquiring about where to submit payment, I was told the the Tech fixed it at no charge. This was clearly out of warranty, stated or implied, and the damage was caused by my...

    Re: Good word for Peterson Strobe Tuners

    Got my repaired tuner in the mail today. I have had this StroboClip for a year or two - can't remember the exact date or even vendor. I took a long trip with a Sweet Pea and stuck it in the zipper...

    Re: An Evening with The Andy Statman Trio

    Scott,

    What a great story - it reminded me of the experience Nancy and I had at the synagogue.

    In February 2007, Andy came to Wisconsin and did a workshop in our home. People came from all over...

    Re: Tea For One

    Coletrickle,

    Re: Jethro Burns Tribute

    I believe you are right on the chord chemistry. Jethro did understand the chemistry to a large degree but his knowledge was what I liked to call "native". He once told me that you can't play a tune...

    Danbui,

    Thanks for the acknowledgment. I can't think of what Jethro called that tune. I am impressed by your tenacity to play it - not easy! The voicing he used for the main chord was - and pardon...

    Re: Jethro Burns Tribute

    Raymando,

    It is a C whole tone scale but it is played over D7 or D7b5 - it is the lick he uses as an interlude in "Take the A Train" - the subsequent licks are variations that he used to close the...

    Raymando,

    Can you be more specific? Where is "Lick 1"? There are no tracks by that name in the Lessons.

    Re: Jethro Burns Tribute

    Jethro did not judge his audiences or his students, beyond making the necessary calibrations to cater to their needs. He was loyal to them to a fault. He wasn't even judgmental of his critics.

    Terry,

    I am surprised and thrilled to hear from you. I remember you (and your mom) from those Wednesday nights in the Winter of 1975-76. Those days I spent with your dad were very precious to me....

  17. Re: Use of Homeowner Policies to Insure Musical Instruments

    My bad! A stuttering finger buys an extra "0".

    The rate was $,50/$100/yr. Typically, I don't think it is worth carrying a Heritage policy if you are not over $25,000 in scheduled value. With a...
