So how come the magazine says 'Scrapbooking' instead of, say, "Bluegrass Musician?" http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

I don't know how he did it - but it takes a day and a night to load on a dial-up connection! (I live so far out in the prickers, we're lucky to have phones. No DSL, cabel modem, or any other broad-band connectivity.) http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif

I've wondered about a harmonica-mando sound. #Somewhere I read that the harp and the mando occupy the pretty much the same tonal range and therefore "muddy" their combined sound - what are your thoughts? #As I recall the writer was extolling a harp-uke combo.

the band The Undertaking Daddies work a harmonica well into a bluegrass-honkeytonk sound.

Ask ira, he plays both. I don't see why it wouldn't work.

hmm, the mag is my sisters input! I'm definately not creative enough for that! Sorry about the size of the pic!!!

Harp and mando worked well together - we were playing a blues version of folsom prison blues!!

thanks for thinking of me glauber. playing the harp and mando during the same song takes some thought. they are, to some degree, in the same tonal range, though they offer a completely different sound, allowing them to be used together. it is important if it is just a mando and harp to think about which register you want to play each, especially during solos on one with rythm on the other. in situations with multiple instruments (even just the addition of one guitar), not so much of an issue as the others offset the tonal similarities. really cool if you can develop some interplay-e.g., train rythm with low register on harp with leads on mando, alternating the beat and the off beats with the two, etc....
peace,
