    Re: Celtic, irish cd's

    Ten years later, I'll add her solo album The Bright Hollow Fog, which she released last year. It's pretty bare bones, with little accompaniment, so you really can dial into her playing, which has...

    Re: Please define “intermediate”

    Literally speaking, "intermediate" is a paradoxical term. "Inter" means between (e.g., intercollegiate) or going from one place to another (e.g., interstate, intercontinental) "Med" means middle...

    Re: Battle of Evermore

    If you want a pick-up, you're going to be adding a significant installation charge to your budget. You might want to check out Eastman's MD604 or 605, which come with a K&K. The 604 has an oval...

    Re: Planning a road trip

    I agree completely with this advice. The case will insulate the instrument, but only to a point, and you definitely don't want to go beyond that point. I'll leave an instrument covered in my car...

    Re: Choro listening recommendations

    Oooooooh. Major rabbit hole here! I took an intro workshop from Mike Marshall and saw the appeal, but it was going to require way more time than I wanted to invest in it. We're talking lots of...
  7. Re: Fiddle Hell Online Workshops April 15-18

    I think it's tricky because as you scroll down it, you can't tell what day you're on once you pass the first session. On the right side of the schedule page, before you scroll down, it gives you the...

    Re: Collings Vs. Northfield Vs. Kelley

    I love this comment! I had a Bitterroot for a while, but it had too much of a bluegrass sound for my taste, so I sold it and bought a Yellowstone. There's something for everyone!

    I think that...

  10. Re: Intermediate Mando - Good Mando to Step up to?

    I agree completely --- except for the RAG commentary, only because I've never played one. There is a symbiosis between player and instrument, so you will become a better player with a better...

    Re: Octave Mandolin Course

    I agree completely!!!


    Interesting timing! I wonder if the PN folks saw Matt's course offering and decided to get in on the action.

    Joe is starting with some tunes that I really like, but...
  13. Re: Learning octave mandolin before regular mandolin

    I agree, although I'd call them "overlapping" applications. You can play bluegrass on an OM, but it's easier on a mandolin. You can play power chords (e.g., C5) on mandolin, but they sound more...

    Re: Collings, Northfield, Girouard

    I've never played a Northfield A5. I've also never played a Girouard A5 Concert, but I have played their Ensembles. I think that the Concert is the same mandolin as the Ensemble, but with more...

    Re: Any lazy way to off a bunch of instruments?

    I'd call Gryphon first and see if they'd be interested in handling any or all of those before driving up there. As a heads-up, they have raised their consignment fee to 30% because they have been...

    Re: What mandocello music to you listen to?

    Thanks, Jim, but I never got fluent reading treble clef, so I got pretty frustrated when I tried working with bass clef years ago. On mandocello, I just work out everything by ear.

    Re: Gborm? Gbrom?

    I played a GBROM once. The tone was a bit mushy when I played chords, but it got really intense on melody lines. As you'd expect, it had a really strong attack on each note, with lots of resonance...

    Re: What mandocello music to you listen to?

    Yeah, Mike is probably Top 1 with me. "Gator Strut" is probably still the mandocello anthem, but he has taken the instrument way beyond that this century, and I can't think of anyone else who is...

    Unfortunately, you may have a tough time finding a mandocello for sale within a few hours of Omaha, which means that you're going to be taking on a new instrument without being able to road test it...

    In that case, I don't think you need to make the pilgrimage to Nashville. I'd imagine that Eastman and/or Kentucky have dealers closer to you than that. I'd check first to make sure that those...

  24. Re: Thinking of getting a Northfield Big Mon and I have questions

    From what I've gathered, Sitka is better if you want more attack in your tone, and Adi is better if you want more resonance. I'm not sure where Engleman fits on that spectrum. I haven't played an...

    I'm obviously on the wrong coast for this, but the only serious music store I know of in Asheville is Dream Guitars, but Paul usually doesn't have more than a mandolin or two in stock, and very few...
