    Re: RIP Nolan Faulkner

    I grew up in the Detroit area and had the pleasure on knowing Nolan. Great, great mandolin player. He taught me how to play chop chords. Go in peace.

    Re: Miller Brothers Bluegrass

    I played a lot of bluegrass in the area in the late 60s and 70s. I was a member of the Sunnysiders. I have an Miller Brothers LP (somewhere). Very cool that they got the award.
  5. Re: What song, Album, Musician changed your perspective on music?

    I feel fortunate to have grown up in the Detroit area. Lots of music of all kinds, lots of great ethnic food, great art museum, etc.

    Re: Young Sam Bush A5 video

    Yes, its a Randy Wood A50 conversion. I played in a band the winter of ‘72 in Colorado (Goldrush). Brian Lappin, the banjo picker, bought it from Tut Taylor. Don’t know what happened to it after that.

    Re: Picking technique on electric mandolin?

    I’ve played the acoustic for decades and have a very heavy (for lack of a better term) approach with both hands. With the electric, I have had much better results with a thinner pick and a looser...

    Re: Chords

    Re: Slump......slump buster?

    What Al from Colorado said works for me. But I take more than a day off, sometimes several. When I get back to it, I find some of the vexing passages or licks fall into place. Subconscious at work?
