    Re: Why is Low humidity a problem?

    Ditto to what sunburst said. And I am in the camp that sudden changes create the most havoc.

    Thank you Gina. Not sure it was the best—there was that much maligned “Nature” episode—but it is in the top 5 for sure.

    You are right on Buck and building your Monroe library! So many are forgotten in this wave of 3rd and 4th generation pickers. Kinda overwhelming at times.

    Mandolin Heroes Podcast

    I did a podcast called Mandolin Heroes and am somewhat surprised by the lack of response. I thought, surely, that this would be right up the alley of the Cafe Crowd. But what do I know?

    I will look for that. Again. Good luck. You’re gonna love it if you like making music from the back row. That’s where I am these days and it is good.
