    Re: Jams near Bend, Oregon?

    If you're near Burns, my daughter and son-in-law run Steens Mountain Brewery, with a great outdoor space. I'd bet they'd be happy to host some pickers (athough they're not musicians themselves). My...

    Re: Warm up song

    I like to do some Mike Marshall Finger Busters, right and left hand for starters. He's got some playalong ones on ArtistWorks that I currently like, because I like playing along. After that, a song...

    That's a great design, then, the way the two ends act as a fail safe! Thanks for showing that, Will.
  6. Re: Advice/Suggestions on characteristics of an ideal mandolin st

    Some interesting points here. This is a good topic.

    I've heard of some leather itself affecting the finish of the mando, but hadn't thought about the dye. I wonder how available the...

    At that price, shipping is part of the price. You can call it free ...

    Re: Always use a strap? Even when seated?

    I've got more straps than I do instruments, and, being somewhat of a fiber artist, I'm thinking seriously about getting into making some. ;)

    Re: Another newcomer

    That just demonstrates why you need both.

    If one is being worked on, you need another mandolin to play :mandosmiley:
  14. Re: Strap for a Strad-ol-Lin? There's no strap button.

    I don't like the idea of drilling holes, either, but respect whatever choice a person makes. On my Strad-O-Lin, I have the strap threaded through the tailpiece and (currently) under the fretboard...

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    I get offers for extended warranties on my 2005 Ford Freestyle all the time. If it's good for a rustbucket SUV, why not a nice looking vintage mando?

    So, Sheila, I don't see a guitar on your list. Your guitar doesn't have a name yet? Or (heaven forbid!) the guitar's too plain-vanilla to rate a name !?!
