    Re: Not often

    Oh yeah. A dealer I talk to yesterday said the market has gone pretty cold. No doubt a reflection of bigger economic trends. I've had a minty Loar-era A2Z for sale for months and gotten only a nibble...

    Thanks for this! Sharon is such a good teacher. And I love her playing. So smooth and controlled. A lot like her colleague, John Reischman.

    Oh yeah! Been waiting for this interview to drop. Huzzah! Now to read it. : )

    Hmmm. And all along I though Mike Marshall owned the company! Turns out (now that I bother to look it up) the company was founded by David Butler, a former AOL exec who got interested in music. Good...

    Re: New Chris Thile album

    Similar response. And, freak coincidence, I also have been playing open back banjo for a couple of months with some help from Adam Hurt. I never got banjo before but clawhammer is very interesting.
  8. Re: Learning The Basics -vs- Being A Slave To The Basics

    Good thoughts. I've been playing scales around the circle of fourths and a series of major and minor arpeggios around the same circle of fourths (G to D) to start every morning -- using single,...

    Re: Mandolin Orange is now Watchhouse

    I looked at this yesterday, didn’t comment, came back and looked again. I guess I’m just generally puzzled over the rationale for rebranding. I admire their music and body of recording and video work...

    Lovely man. His autobiography is well worth reading.

    Might want to change the title on this poster image to say “May” rather than “March.”

    Re: Pig Jicking?

    DUDDUD ... that’s the ticket for jigs. Ditto for gigues. DUDDUDDUD for slip jigs. Play the accent on the downbeat — ONE 2 3 FOUR 5 6 etc. This is dance music. Work in the triplets and ornaments...
  19. Re: Why did Gibson return to Paddleheads after Snakeheads?

    I'd always assumed -- 100% guessing, but it seemed "obvious" to me (which doesn't mean it actually is obvious) -- that the paddle heads look more like the headstocks on the guitars, and somebody just...

    Super cool. Thank you so much! I’m assuming that’s a floating pickup? Off to read more about this interesting mandolin ...

    I would say there aren’t an infinitude of tunes, but apparently there are. Even so, I don’t see the harm in a repeat. To err is human...

    Hmm. Interesting actually. Surprised it hasn’t been tried before. I second the five-string idea and raise it a cutout. I definitely would want to try one. It’s not a mandolin but I can see it...
  24. Looking for some insight into microtonal mandolin

    Flynn Cohen has a really interesting Mandolin Monday post today no doubt most have seen. Can somebody knowledgeable please explain what's going on with "microtonal" frets? It's a little like...
