    I'm not a doctor (don't even play one on TV) and I don't know what that irritated spot is exactly. My only observation/advice is that thumb placement on your fretting hand is (should be) different on...

    Re: The Darlings Mandolin switch

    The 'Darlings' were actually the 'Dillards' and they helped introduce the (uninitiated) world to the Bluegrass sound through that show. As I understand it, the mandolin you see is not always the...

    Re: Key of Bb

    I do appreciate the lesson David and I'm sure you're 100% correct about that "II" chord being a "secondary dominant".

    I think you're right Doug. When you face the cold hard truth, a banjo-killing mandolin is just wishful thinking. There are loud mandolins of course, when compared to other mandolins. And there are...
