pick it like yer nose, baby

I’ve got a sore throat and shredded fingertips this morning, but it was worth it: went to a pickin’ party in Hyde Park last night for my local bluegrass hero (happy birthday Mike). Played a lot of bass, a few really nice guitars, and really freaked out over our host’s amazing Gilchrist A-style mandolin. Could not believe how well it played, and of course it sounded fantastic. Too bad they’re going for about 20 grand on eBay (or so I hear… but I think I’ll go have a look right now)…

got something to say about that?
