For the mandolin players in the audience, here is a link to my book I mentioned called "The Mandolin Handbook."

The Mandolin Handbook by Bradley Laird

It's the owner's manual they never gave you. If a few people ask I might write a similar volume for banjo, guitar or other instruments. You have to let me know if you want me to do it or I may leave that idea smoldering in the fire.

This website is not run by a giant corporation or an A.I. computer bot. It's a real guy out here on the other end of the two tin cans and a very long string. I always look forward to hearing a CQ from those of you on the other end of the string.

And here is the bashed Eastman 815 mandolin, featured in a couple of my mandolin video lessons when my Flatiron was being refretted, after it took a ride on a bike protected only by a gig bag. I posted this to my Twitter account a few years ago. You can follow me over there if you are a Twitter type.
