    Re: Jams in Asheville NC?

    Yup. Snowing today. We don't often see that in Houston, but I recognize it from television.

    Jams in Asheville NC?

    Hi - I'm going to be in the Asheville area for the next two weeks or so. Curious to know if there any public jams around, especially that might be Covid-safe (e.g. outdoors or socially distanced)?

    Re: Free to a good home

    Wouldn't have helped Gunnar. The the inside (second) e string tuner is the only one that's not functioning perfectly.

    Have you tried yelling at it? It didn't help mine, but I don't see how it...

    Free to a good home

    So, I had a problem with the tuner on one of my high e strings not holding tension, and the good folks at Ellis/Pava sent me a replacement set of tuners. I took the old set out and dropped the new...
  6. Re: Who thinks a Mandolin Cafe Patch would be a Good Idea?

    I'd buy at least two - one for my guitar gig bag and one for my mando gig bag. And probably an extra.

    Re: Looking for instructor in Boulder

    I've been having some very preliminary thoughts about a move to the Boulder or Denver area. How is the acoustic community up there? I have an impression that it's great, but I haven't lived up...
  8. Re: Should I put a Mandolin Cafe Sticker on my Vintage Lifton Cas

    I have stickers on one guitar case that I don't expect ever to sell (famous last words) and one cheap after market mandolin case. That scratches the itch without potentially messing up a case for a...

    Short scale Northfield

    I had a chance to play one of those flattop Northfields on Saturday at Fiddler's Green. My Octave is a Pona with a 23-inch scale that sounds terrific, but the scale length definitely throws me. ...

    Re: 3-Part Chris Thile Master Class online

    I gave up watching the video about 10 minutes in and worked on my family tree while it ran in the background. Looking forward to watching the archived video, but it was too distracting to try to...

    Re: Arlo Guthrie Retirement

    I got see him around 1990 when he played at George Washington University. James McMurtry opened and was amazing by the way. After the show, my buddy and I hung around the tour bus just a bit, and...
  13. Re: Man 'headed for death' says he was saved by this

    The New York Times did a lengthy and well-written article on them several months ago. It's probably behind a paywall, but if you're a subscriber here's a link to the article.
  14. Re: Best selections of mandolins near Houston TX

    Fuller's may be the best store for acoustic guitars in Texas right now, but Fiddler's Green always has a much better mandolin selection. I have two mandolins and an octave that came from Fiddler's...

    Re: Calton Cases - in pictures

    Curious to know if you've ever tried an oval hole Collings in yours. My MT2-0 feels like it's got a little bit deeper body than my f-style mandolins. (I'm sure the specs are easily available, but...

    Re: Article on Chief O誰eil

    I play the tune Chief O'Neill's favorite, but I was under the impression it was an older tune, maybe O'Carolan? Does anyone know if that's a tune this fellow collected?

    I think I'll give a run...

    Re: Houston park meetup

    I'd be interested. I'm mostly a fiddle tunes guy, and more likely to play guitar than mandolin.

    I don't know many swing tunes either Mark. Wish I did! Working on Little Rock Getaway on guitar...

    Re: Dylan on bluegrass in the New York Times

    That's a great statement of why I never feel right calling what I play "bluegrass" even if that's the closest I can come to describing it to people who aren't steeped in it. Fiddle tunes, acoustic...

    I tickle the strings as often as possible to keep it awake. Other than that, I'll take a little polish to it every now and again if it feels grubby. That might happen once or twice a year. I...
  25. Re: Something unique: Phoenix Custom 'Blue Mahoe'

    Man. Beautiful craftsmanship and I'm all for innovation, but the tone doesn't appeal to me at all. Maybe it's the moosebone nut. It reminds me of a Mid Missouri I briefly owned.
