    Braid Laird has these 20 points intended to be reviewed (aloud, he says!) every time you sit down to your mandolin: "How to Become Good Fast"

    I have this in the front of my music notebook.

    "Lost Soul Behind Bars" - NMC

    I hope this is the right category for soul music, if not maybe the moderators can move it.

    I stumbled upon this article about "The untold story of Upheaval, a prison band [in Wisconsin] that...

    I hope you guys realized that when I said the F2 was languishing, it meant that I was giving all my attention to the SOL lately, not that they were all sitting in their cases ;)

    Re: A Strad-O-Lin almost identical to mine

    Here's the thread about my Strad-O-Lin (and others LOL)

    Now that I look at it, mine has a dark colored fretboard, but I don't think it's any kind of fancy wood. I've been told at the top and sides...

    A Strad-O-Lin almost identical to mine

    Looks to me like the only difference is no stairstep fretboard extension and the bridge is different.

    Best musical experience ever. I met Dan and Valerie and saw several other mando cases with Cafe stickers on them.

    The people were extremely welcoming and considerate of novice musicians. I felt...

    Re: Nylon-Strung Piccolo Mandolin Prototype

    They both sound great, Bob, and I love the idea of making something easy to play for people whose hands need a break.
    Is that your own tune?

    This is getting more than a tad off topic, but folks, there is no such thing as "free shipping". It just means the cost is worked into the cost of the item. If I must buy something online, I'd...

  22. Re: My First Mandolin- A Keeper or keep looking?

    I still have my $235 1st mandolin, a KM200S, so I guess it's a keeper of sorts. After some work, it's a good "beater". I took it with me on a trip, and lent it to my brother for awhile.

    In fact, I...
