    Re: Bargin prices for chisels and gouges?

    But when one lives on a fixed income, as I do at the moment,

    Re: v picks

    I have two.
    The Ruby Screamers have a very smooth edge, are a bit more tonally warm with lots of slick roll off.
    The Pearl Screamers will give you a little more bite, and brightness, but also has a...

    Re: the demise of the pick guard

    Well my 2 cents:
    If you play with a destructive technique and don't use a guard,

    I have left the Scratch Guard on my vintage mando, just for that reason, ...
  14. Re: Picked up a very nice Strat-o-Lin today! Any info?

    1920-1938
    I have a midrange model from that era (Profile pic, and full size pix in the community), IMO the best ones are from the earlier years.
    IIRC they all came out of one shop in NYC during...

  17. Re: Madolin,Octave, Or Mendocello? I can't decide!

    Indeed, I will be playing every last note I can get out of it...
    I am making the switch mainly due to back issues.
    As for style, I am an old Punk that grew up on Old school Country, and traditional...

    Yeah I have my Grandmothers Mando(in my profile pic)
    I do love it, but I love the sound of Octave, and M/Cellos.

    Re: General thoughts on covering pop songs

    The whole "Pickin' on" series is freakin' great!
    Pickin' on the 80's is my personal fave.
