Please let me know if I'm placing my ramblings in the wrong forum...there are so many here at mando-cafe, and I kind of defaulted here to 'equipment'...
Anyway, it should be noted that trying to put oneself to sleep by playing the mando for fifteen or twenty minutes does not work. After having a lovely dinner with a gal I'm quite fond of, I found myself far from sleepy, so at 12:30 last night I thought, pluck the mando for a bit, you know you're tired...
...fast forward to 2:30 am. I begin to put the mandolin away (after having successfully plucked away at Working Man's Blues) and realise the folly of my intended task.
Someone really should have warned me about this.
Again, if there's a better place for such small-talk as I've posted above, please let me know, as I'm sure some people will begin to think, if not say, 'this forum's for discussing strings, frets, mics and a-holes' and the last thing I want to do is spread a negative vibe here.
Thanks in advance. --what I really, really need right now, especially since I have a performance review with the boss in an hour.
Give me bluegrass or give me The Grateful Dead.
