    Re: Jazz Players

    I'll give big thumbs up to the Stiernberg Soundslice lessons, Aaron's Pegged Nation course, and Flinner's Swing sessions - they've all helped me get through this year.

    When I ordered #484, I was told the wait would be 9 months. Then the pandemic hit and I think that has spread out a lot of their production time. It enabled a few discussions with Tom during the...

    Re: Hands on with a Zeta acoustic mandolin

    Daryl: Those pictures (and others) look like a drool-worthy mandolin. Did you have a chance to play it plugged in or did you record any audio/video? These are intriguing instruments.
