I play mandolin for a long time for the band named The All That Grass in Aichi,Japan.
What kind of mandolin are you playing in that pic?

Masa618....ever play in Otaki, Hiroshima, Iwakuni, Kudamatsu(sp)areas around '89/'90?
I was in a band in the area then and often performed on the program with Japanese BG Bands. What a great time it was. We may have played a few of the same venues.

I am using Gilchrist F-5 #as the main mandolin.
Because it likes melody for fiddle in the feature ..monroe sound, compatibility is good.
And I about 1989 was not in the Hiroshima district because I had performed in Nagoya.

OK. So it isn't a mando but, I did get to play Jake Shimabukuro's uke. If only I could get mine to sound as good. My daughter took the photo. Jake is a really nice guy and spent the drive back to the hotel (very late on Friday night) having his ears talked off by my daughter and another volunteers daughter. He was super. His concert was amazing too. I gave him a Café case sticker just to perpetuate the uke mando confusion. Ha!

Jamie,

I spoke with a fellow Cafér who went to a uke fest in Chicago a couple of weeks ago and saw Jake play. #I'll let him chime in...

...let's put it this way, Jakes playing left an everlasting impression on him. #And from judging this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9mEKMz2Pvo) I would have to agree.

Lovely Wife Renee and I went to Asheville's Shindig on the Green earlier in the summer (FWIW we went last night, too). We're still quite new to the area, but a nice lady asked us up on stage anyways! While we were up there, a Photog from the local paper took this picture.

Scott Tichenor

You can attach up to six images per post, and it's going to automatically thumbnail it for you if they're larger than the thumbnail size. In other words, smaller photos don't get thumbnailed.

Hey Jeff! Life in WNC is working out just fine. It's everything we'd hoped for and mow ... lots and lots of mowing, that is.

It's nice to live in a place where everyone knows what a mandolin is, what it's for, and probably knows someone who plays it too!

Renee's got the mando-bug too. Just like I used to do, she keep the Mid-Mo M-0 be her desk, and picks it up throughout the day and plays a bit of this or that. It's really cool to hear mandolin music around the house.

Cheers,

That's turned off. On this new board you can edit your post for the first few hours, but you can't delete your own any more. We thought about this a while, we've had folks delete all their posts out of spite which breaks and confuses the flow of otherwise interesting threads.

Moderators can still delete posts for you on request, but hopefully this will also be a better incentive for folks to be less eager to flame, knowing they can't "cover their tracks" later.

Yes, Jim, a Collings A that I picked up not too long ago from Mandolin Brothers thanks to a fellow Cafe'er reporting a sighting there. I find myself playing a lot lately so I alternate between my Daley and the Collings. They are different from each other but pose no challenges playing both (just not at the same time).

A couple of shots of me with my new Clark F5 #27, and my band, "Temporary Stringband." The pictures were taken July 19 when we performed at the 3rd annual Barron County (WI) Bluegrass Festival. We're more of an old-time band than bluegrass, but the people there seemed to enjoy us anyway.

Fred Keller
Dec-01-2008, 11:00am
The mandolins were Gilchrists--F5's. Mike plays Black's Run on an "octave banjo mandolin." I believe that was Grisman's. Mike also plays a mandola, octave mandola, and guitar.

Don't know if it's the same one but I think the last 'dola I saw Mike with was a Duff (he also said he was thinking of selling it). Couldn't tell you the make of the octave.

Mike told me his guitar was a parlor or 000 model, about 80 years old or more...maybe a Washburn? Can't recall. I don't know if Mike used his own guitar or borrowed one of Grisman's.

I'm sure others know more than I

Brassgrassers? Do tell...

Well, our instrumentation goes like this... (all accoustic) Guitar, mando, banjo, standup, dobro, 2 saxs (technically saxes are not in the brass family, but it sounds better than woodwindgrassers haha) and a pared down kit. Some bluegrass, but really songwriter oriented so only a few standards here and there. Bottom line it's rowdy and fun. Can you upload MP3's?

www.myspace.com/ballhogmusic

Check out Wheel 'N Oke, we slapped wheel haus and Roanoke together and wrote a horn line to it. It's not me on mandolin on that song as we switch it up quite a bit, but it is a prime example of "brassgrass".

Yes, he does. Matt plays bass through the old timey style while Richard plays drop thumb banjo. Richard takes over on bass when Matt plays bluegrass style. The band mixes up both styles pretty well.

Point well taken. I would not have been so crass if I thought it were really a funeral - he is wearing jeans and loafers, rather informal attire.

Same for me. I am sorry if this should have been a serious situation - in that case the pun backfired on me. I guess that's a risk we punsters are willing to take, but not meaning to hurt anybody but ourselves in the process. No offence meant, my apologies.

BTW, Bobby, Phil, and Warren were on The View today (poor guys). They did a rather odd version of "Friend Of The Devil" with acoustic guitars (no mandolin, of course) - Bobby sang/spoke the first verse, Warren sang the second, Bobby again on the third, no bridge or fourth verse, Warren took a lead, Bobby took a better lead (or maybe it was just a better-sounding guitar), they sang the bridge, then instead of the fourth verse repeat (wife in Chino etc), Phil sang a verse I'd never heard:

You can borrow from the devil
You can borrow from your friend
The devil's got a twenty dollar bill
Your friend only got ten

I don't know if this is a new or alternate verse. Not crazy about it; puts too much emphasis on the money theme. I haven't been following the guys too closely since a couple of years after Jerry died. I felt bad for them, still having to field questions about Jerry after all this time.

I grew it back one last time a few years ago, but I was keeping it tied back most of he time. The photo shoot gave me the freedom to bid it farewell and continue to attempt to look reasonable. :whistling:

They were different times; there was a different mindset. It was safer because more people were doing it as well as picking up people. Can't say I'd recommend it now. There are more wackos, and they're whackier. But I met some interesting people and went some places I never would have otherwise. The utter randomness apealed to me. And a mandolin was much easier to stow than a guitar. :grin: (Got that MC in after all!)

I think this will work...

Bluegrass + Lights + Smoke Machines + Lasers = Heaven

Great pic! Looks like a very cool gig.

Stylish chapeau no doubt. Is that a V pick at about the 7th fret?

Yes it is -- I recently purchased a few of the thinner V-picks to try out, and that is one of the new "Tremelo" models, which I have really taken a liking to. (I need to keep it in the strings, else it won't be long before I loose it. ;) )

A pic of my three year old Aidan enjoying The Courtney Janes (http://www.myspace.com/thecourtneyjanes) at the Grand Lake Farmer's Market last Saturday. (MC: Ben Hulan, the guy on the left, also plays mandolin quite well.)

Okay, I was thinking this ol' thread needed a bump.

Here's a recent photo of me playing my Collings D-3 at the Bluegrass From The Forest festival in Shelton, WA. I like the guitar photo as it covers the majority of my prodigious belly (...can you say "Weight Watchers? I knew you could).

The photo is courtesy my friend Eric Frommer.

The mandocello could also work well for you, Pete!

Hmmm...the juxtaposition of reddish sedimentary rocks in the background and what look to be plutonic igneous in the foreground....ummm

OK. San Miguel River down the hill a piece from Telluride, CO?

Lee nails it! Slide Rock, to be precise.

Same hat, different family members, different canyon...

Well it looks like a clean enough creek that you were up -- but did you have a paddle?

Playing Amazing Grace in the setting was the hardest thing I have ever done.
