Hey, Bud!

Thanks for the picture. I have been working on my family tree and Union Grove is where I've traced back to 1785. One of the Henderson's of that area. I walked the graveyards around the town there and I think I'm related to most of the population there, somehow. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif

Makes me feel like I just got a picture from "home". Greetings from Jacksonville, FL. Thanks soooo much!

Al, glad you enjoyed the photos. I'm not originally from this area but most of the folks in the band grew up in the area. You'll need to get up for the Fiddler's Grove festival sometime. Here is a link.

This is our mando ensemble, playing at the annual dinner of the Italian Club at Hoylake, Merseyside, a couple of weeks ago. That's me with my Embergher on the right of the front row, and Cafe member Fliss with her Calace first from left in the second row. Good fun gig!

MandoSquirrel, thanks for caring. I feel better with a mando in my hands. Everyone, whether or not they admit it, does care what others think of their looks. I have lost the beard and the banjo since the pictures, I still play the dobro some. I guess I should post an updated picture with me and one of my own custom built mandos. I'm not sure there's hope for Brian T. though. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

I'm pleased that y'all are so vastly entertained! As for my Self, I SERIOUSLY LOVE that FUNKY Looking 'Americana' Instrument. If I thought the Creator could be persuaded to let go of His Creation, His personal 'Hamdolin', I'd promptly Contact Him, and ask: What is His asking price, that I might purchase the 'Hamdolin'? ... On another Topic : What is y'all's Opinion of an 'External Disc' which is applied per Sticky Adhesive Contact-side, as an Acoustic 'Pick-Up' for a Mandolin ? to augment my Mandolin to a Quasi- Acoustic-Electric Mandolin ? Permittable ? or: Ill-Advised ? ... I am new to this Forum Community. I've had an 'Austin'-make, Flat-back Mando for about 2 or 3 yrs. I've finally figured out my 'problem' I've had w/ it : "The Action" was wrong ; I needed to Adjust the Bridge's Height & Level, per the Screws of the Bridge. That done, now my Mando Frets more easily and Sounds cleanly. I have ordered (ought to have it by Wednesd. coming) : 2 Instructional BOOKS w/ a DVD & 4 'Jam Along' CD's. ($75.) (I was tutored in Piano back in Hi Sch, '68-'70. I'm familiar w/ Musical Notation.) Last night, I wrote out in Mandolin Tablature the music for Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" & Elvis' "Love Me Tender". And I 'Cross-Picked the Music, and the Songs WERE! Recognizable ! So I AM encouraged to Continue & Learn & Master My Mandolin ! ... again : the Q re: 'Pick-up's.

I haven't posted a picture for a long time.

A couple of weeks ago we were vacationing in Sonoma, Calif. At the Sabastiani Winery the David Thom Band was going to perform in the courtyard but we couldn't stay long enough to hear them. The guitar player (who was subbing) got there first and he let me try his mandolin (Italian name, the same kind that Grisman's been playing) and we picked Bluegrass Stomp together. He was playing, I think, a 1944 Martin. Anyone happen to know his name? When the band showed up I had a nice chat with fiddler Paul Shelasky, who a friend of mine had studied with. I'm always amazed how friendly bluegrass musicians are. Meeting them made my day.

I wondered from the pic & location(& the fact that he had a Giacomel) if that might be Lowell; interesting non mando historical trivia, he was "Banana" with the Youngbloods, known for the hit single of "Get Together". I'm sure Dan & lot's of others know, but I figured some of the Youngun's here might not know he used to be sort of famous.

Bill,
My doctor told me I had this little thing called Type II Diabetes and that I needed to change my diet and get some exercise (along with a couple pills a day)if I wanted to stay on the planet a while longer! http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif So no more sugar or drive thru food most of the time, no more sugar loaded soda pop, really have to watch the carb intake big time (carbs convert to sugar) and 30-60 minutes walking on the treadmill 3-5 times a week. That's my recipe for the weight loss. now I have to figure out what to do with the leftover skin. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif

I cut out the bad carbs and lost 60 pounds in 2001. I only managed to get 10 of it back. It does take a lifestyle change to keep it off though. Instead of eating now I play the mandolin.

I still occasionally wear my Sox cap purchased in 1985. Wore it to baseball practices in high school and college. It's split up the back now, and so sun-faded that the stiching looks gray and the B looks more like a UCLA Bruins cap.

It's funky, but still great!

I bought #2 after the '86 World Series and I used to wear it while I mowed the lawn - man that thing got funky!

Bought #3 when I took my youngest son on his first visit to Fenway in 2005. #I've been wearing it at bluegrass festivals ever since. Looks like one of the kids dropped a Sharpie on it and now it has racing stripes.

I would venture to say that I see more Red Sox ballcaps than any other team logo. #Maybe we should start a new thread..."Post A Picture of Yourself Wearing a Red Sox Hat & Playing Mandolin"

those are sweet, do you have any sound clips. I got to play Robert Bowlin's Larson Bros. Maurer and Euphenon a few times. They were awesome guitars, of course they sounded a whole lot better when he plays them (link). (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1R4p5kV5o08) The tone those instruments have is amazing and was curious about how good their mandolin family instruments are.

Miko
Aug-05-2007, 8:56am
Sorry, no sound clips at this time. Now that Yvonne has hers back from the luthier we're going to work up a duet and I could post a clip of that at a later date if you're interested. I can tell you that the Larson mando instruments are every bit as good sounding as their guitars. My cello, in my opinion, sounds better than a K1 or a K2. I've never had the good fortune (in both senses of that phrase) to encounter a K4, so I can't speak to that.

Aug-06-2007, 8:36pm
The Gibson was apparently rescued from a fire some time ago before I bought it. The top was replaced with what looks like a near copy that is still bare wood. New tuners were put on upside down and an adjustable bridge was added. It sounds good and I got it for a very low price so I use it as my beater. Didn't get a drop of water on it the whole trip! A little wine, but no water.

Yeah DLQ will definitely seem different without Jamie but Doyle has lost an awful lot of talented singers and musicians over the years and never seems to skip a beat.

The upside is Jamie's new band is just going to blow your socks off when they start touring next January. Their debut CD will be coming out later this year and based on the cuts I've heard DLQ is going to have some real competition for vocal group of the year.

This is me yesterday on NASA's C-9 "Weightless Wonder" (the more colorful nickname of this aircraft is not encouraged). I was with a team of junior high and high school teachers demonstrating laws of motion (or in one experiment, determining mass without gravity) for use in science classrooms across the US. My experimnt didn't take the entire 50 parabolas, so I got Peterson Tuners to donate a StroboFlip tuner, and I measured the effect of gravity on the tuning of my Mix A4. I'll tell you what I observed after a few of you posit hypotheses. I will tell you that I found it difficult to pick because the darn thing kept trying to float away!

The photo of the Loar a few back sure looks like a really nice one. Who does the early '23 Loar belong to?

I don't get in front of a camera much, but here is myself in the flower shirt, and my son Dylan in red, at the Texas Pickin' Park this October.

Frank,

Anybody ever tell you that in this photo, you are a dead ringer for Dr. Evil? And that's Pat White on your right, right?

Frank--like the pictures. I used to like to watch Rumsfield just because he'd give the "you're-such-an-idiot" squint to the press. A notable event for you. Not everybody gets to play for that sort of audience.

Gee, I miss Rumsfeld smirking at the press and telling them their questions were idiotic. He was the Bobby Knight of the political world.

Somehow I'm guessing Rumsfeld knows his mandolin/bluegrass. True?

thefiddlemon, I meant my comments in friendly jest and not disrespect. If I offended you please accept my humble apology, I meant no ill will.

Happy Holidays!

Hey, I played bluegrass when I was in the Nav, but never an official gig! Neat.
Here I am in one of my more tender, folk-singing moods.

Hey Frank

I watched the video on your website. I really liked your take on "working on a building". Great stuff!!!

Hey Phil, it was nice to meet you and pick with you on Friday night. This is the Jeremy who was playing bass with Helen most of the night. I hope we get to do it again.
