    Arab Bounce. Pronounced 'AY-rab'. In deference to Arab, Mississippi or Alabama, one of them states. Vernon Derrick was indeed a character. I saw him perform once with The Boys From Indiana, on...

    This was posted on FB. It's new to me and one can hear the nascent Tony Rice guitar thing happening. Very cool.

    Re: RIP Tony Rice

    R.I.P., Tony Rice.

    I first saw him at the GAMH in the Fall of '76, in Grisman's band. Sadly, I wasn't too aware of Tony then, more of the Dawg. I did catch the TRU at The Bottom Line in NYC, 1981....

    Re: Modern case options for teens Gibson A models

    I was unfamiliar with this SKB case until I received a mandolin packed in it. Good, well-made, solid, lightweight case.

    If I already didn't have a good A model, I'd consider this bad boy big-time. And, it's Kelley, btw.

    Re: Sierra Hull on Steven Colbert

    I liked it, too. His vocals remind me of Gregg Allman a bit.

    Re: Kentucky Mandolin KM-805 quaility issues

    Well, I own a Kentucky 805 that is well-made, sounds good and plays well. The inside of the scrolls is un-finished. This does not bother me.

    Re: Brekke vs Traditional Bridge

    Thanks for the elucidation, Vern.
