    Re: Is this how it starts?

    The time allowance would be substantially more copious if I hadn't gotten heavily involved in my town's Tricentennial celebration not long before I bought my first mandolin. That's pretty fun too,...

    Re: Is this how it starts?

    Yeah, it's a Bb like I had back in high school, and it's probably the only woodwind I need ;)

    I don't know how old it is, I think older than the plastic one I had in the 70's, and it seems pretty...

    Re: New NMD - Collings

    That's an awesome next first mandolin. Should stave off MAS for awhile, anyway. Pick on!

    Re: Where are the Mandola Books?

    Some good ideas there Simon, thanks. I'm still a newbie, but having lots of fun with the mandola. It's still my second to favorite instrument; I love the sound and play with it pretty often! When...

    Re: NMD and a little story

    So wait, do you have a ukulele, too? I don't see it on your list :)
    I would think you would need one now.

    (That's a cool story, BTW. What a great way to bond with your granddaughter across the...
  7. Re: Dead Sounding Strings - Do I have a bridge issue?

    You can do it yourself! I did it on my very first mandolin not long after I got it. I worked very slowly, and it took a long time. My issue wasn't poor fit, it was way too high action. My luthier...

    Re: Jams near Bend, Oregon?

    If you're near Burns, my daughter and son-in-law run Steens Mountain Brewery, with a great outdoor space. I'd bet they'd be happy to host some pickers (athough they're not musicians themselves). My...

    Re: Warm up song

    I like to do some Mike Marshall Finger Busters, right and left hand for starters. He's got some playalong ones on ArtistWorks that I currently like, because I like playing along. After that, a song...
  12. Re: Advice/Suggestions on characteristics of an ideal mandolin st

    That's a great design, then, the way the two ends act as a fail safe! Thanks for showing that, Will.
  13. Re: Advice/Suggestions on characteristics of an ideal mandolin st

    Some interesting points here. This is a good topic.

    I've heard of some leather itself affecting the finish of the mando, but hadn't thought about the dye. I wonder how available the...

    At that price, shipping is part of the price. You can call it free ...

    Re: Always use a strap? Even when seated?

    I've got more straps than I do instruments, and, being somewhat of a fiber artist, I'm thinking seriously about getting into making some. ;)
    Cotton and/or paracord macrame, and maybe leather.

    Re: Another newcomer

    That just demonstrates why you need both.

    If one is being worked on, you need another mandolin to play :mandosmiley:
  21. Re: Strap for a Strad-ol-Lin? There's no strap button.

    I don't like the idea of drilling holes, either, but respect whatever choice a person makes. On my Strad-O-Lin, I have the strap threaded through the tailpiece and (currently) under the fretboard...

    I get offers for extended warranties on my 2005 Ford Freestyle all the time. If it's good for a rustbucket SUV, why not a nice looking vintage mando?
