I've noticed something about mando players, they tend to disparage Banjos and their players? I've heard them being called 'stupid' and some deign to type the word banjo in it's entirety, vis b**j* or something similar.
What have you guys got agains minner dippers?, clawhammers and the like?
Is it because it enjoys the lime light sometimes, taking it away from the mandoes / mandos (there goes that spelling thing again).
Is it that most musical groups have to have someone to pick on and bluegrass bands don't have drummers?
Speaking of Drummers, I read this on in a university Music building:
There was an orchestra where the percussion section just wasn't getting it right. The conductor spouted,"When a musician can't hack it as a musician, they give him two sticks and make him a drummer."
From the back could be heard, "Yep, and when he can't hack it as a drummer, they take one stick away and make him a conductor>
(sorry about the ADHD tendency... where was I?)
Oh yeah, what's the tiff between mandos / mandoes and Banjo / banjoes? (will someone give me the correct spelling?)
