    Default Loofier~isum according to duh Padma

    Actually, truth be told, (Padma will be mortified that I tell you this but...)

    The Padma is a luthier martial arts master who has been reincarnating as a luthier since the 4th century. He could probably tell you 40 more ways to install frets.

    Hint: one of his secret ways is to sharpen the fret tang, hang the fretboard on the wall, and throw the frets in, like a throwing star. His intonation and scale are perfect.

    Don't tell him I told you this.


    ~ Tom T. (thomsoncat)
    Well,

    my dear brethren, apprentice, fellow craft, journeymen and master loofiers all....
    now that Tom has let my secret out...
    I may as well put an end to the endless babbling and gossip that this will cause
    and simply confess.

    Yes. Is True.

    I am the 23 incarnation of the master loofier known as duh Padma
    and founder of the Padma-pa School of Loofiererism & Martial Arts.

    As the monks got tired of wood be aspiring loofiers beating a path to our monastery door in the Himalayas,
    it was decided I best immigrated to Canada, settle into seclusion in the
    Super Natural mountains of British Columbia and secretly practice our ancient craft.

    For those of you who find this hard to believe, here are pictures of me at the
    monastery in the Himalayas and in my dojo in B.C.

    Now that the word is finally out and with the advent of the World Wide Web, me undertake a new vow
    to use this vehicle of duh forums to spread the word of Loofierisem according to the Padmas brand of B.S.* and as such me will now start posting here at duh Mandolin Cafe, on a regular basses or when ever me building a mando or cittern or Padmazookie.

    So tomorrow me start posting a triple build (that would be 3) a matching mando, a uke and a 6 stringer. Be sure to checks them out.

    Oh and Tom, thank you for relieving me of the burden of secrecy.


    Blessings
    the
    Padma


    *
    B.S. as in belief system.

    Note: dis here post is in accordance with the Prophet

    Actually, I followed up on some of Padma's other posts around the net and he's made some interestingly designed instruments. I'm looking forward to what he brings to the forum and his unique style.

    Mr. Padma,
    Your inimitable style of diction led me to believe that we had all just won the New Freedonian lottery and only needed to send you $10k to release our funds...

    To try and assuage some concerns, we had some posts recently where some younger folks posted some odd ramblings about some music they had made and had multiple user id from same PC conversations with themselves. Padma's stuff on other forums checks out and he really does build stuff and really has a presence like how he presented himself but he's a serious builder from what I can see. Bonafide as far as I'm concerned and looking forward to seeing his mandolin creations.

    I'm pretty sure he makes his own turf builder but I'd rather see the instruments if you get my drift.
