    Re: NMD and a little story

    Thanks, Louise. I appreciate the supportive words. My daughter studied music education, she married a musician, and Daphne's biggest brother is a musician, too, so she has plenty of on-site support...

    Re: NMD and a little story

    Sue, I don't have a ukulele yet. I have my eye on one, but we're wrangling with the insurance company over some storm damage, and I'm doing my best to exercise spending restraint until that mess is...

    Update: Ayden is essentially all healed up, busy digging in to his senior year in high school. I offer heartfelt thanks to all of you who offered prayer and good thoughts following his accident.

    Re: Hello, I am new here

    Here's one on eBay. It isn't blue, but it does have a nifty dragon. https://www.ebay.com/itm/372489297197?hash=item56ba179d2d:g:qfQAAOSwGoBb28wA
  5. Re: A few more questions about an Eastman 305

    I looked at the specifications listed for the MD305 on the Eastman website. The strings you list match the website information. The finish is listed as "satin."

    CarlM,
    Thank you! Sally it is, and now she has a theme song. (Though one could twist the meaning around of Clapton's "Lay Down Sally" and make it work for a guitar, I suppose. This song is better.) ...

    Sue, I was thinking I might call her Sally. What do you think of Sally? Everybody deserves a name!

    Re: I went and did it!

    Well now, I have so many things to tell you:
    1. Rich got the banjo, so I don't have to. (I'm kind of glad for that. I just don't see myself as a banjo type. But then I'm not sure I see myself as a...

    Re: I went and did it!

    Charlie, it's just a plain-vanilla starter quality acoustic guitar. Kevin, yeah, I think I have that part down pat.

    I went and did it!

    Well, I am now the proud (and more than a little surprised) owner of an acoustic guitar. I'm not sure where I picked up the guitar bug, but it sure did bite. I'm having fun with the gigantic beastie,...

    Re: Late Night Trashy Mandolin Music

    I'll take trashy mandolin music over disgruntled cows any old day.
  16. Re: What’s the oddest mandolin related gift you’ve been given?

    I don't (but then, I don't have a guitar, either). It looks like it could do service holding spare strings, a winder and/or nippers, a polishing cloth? I'm fond of boxes to keep stuff in, so if those...

    Re: Harmony Monterey H410 Rescue

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge and skills, which far exceed my own. I am reading, studying photos, and perhaps driving my woodworking husband a little crazy as I learn. I'm long on enthusiasm...

  19. Re: Likely finish on '30s Chicago mandolin?

    Thanks, John, I'll try that.

    By the way--the mandolin that Kevin was showing us today, the two-point, is beyond beautiful. Even just looking at pictures, the outstanding quality of craftsmanship...
  20. Likely finish on '30s Chicago mandolin?

    My latest acquisition, the one that's labeled an SS Maxwell from Chicago, dates to the 1930s. Her finish, in particular, is in rough shape. What was her original finish likely to be? I'm asking...

  22. Re: Tenor Guitar GDAE - Best place to learn/find lessons?

    Don Julin has octave mandolin lessons on his Mandolins Heal The World site. He's a phenomenal teacher--highly recommended. He offers monthly or annual memberships and it's worth every penny.
