Thanks, I am still reeling from it. I had thought that after a month it would be better, but nothing is like losing your father.

hello ransome
I know.. I lost my dad 4 years ago, and I lost my brother ten years ago ( yesterday was the 10th aniversary of his passing) and lost my dear mum only recently on january 12th 2009
you cant expect it to get easier after a month, in fact, for me it only really started after a couple of months, as if all of a sudden I woke up and realised she was really REALLY gone, not visiting my sister in scotland or just gone shopping ..
I still reach for the phone everyday, because I d call her every morning hi mama..how are you today, she was allways happy and positive and she was my very best friend in life, I miss her so much, it takes my breath away sometimes,..
there are good days,..when I don t feel it so much, I m happy doing things with my husband and the kids, enjoying music, etc..but than it hits me when we get home and I want to call her to tell her all about it

in time, it wont be so "sharp" anymore, the edges will fade..and you ll be able to think of your dad with a smile more..and not so much with tears burning in your eyes and heart
for now..just accept the pain, grief is just the price we have to pay for the love we received and gave
it is a high price, but mums and dads are well worth it!
take care!

I took the cigar box mando to Mt. Airy this weekend and had a grand time. Here is a photo of me playing the box and my friend Eric playing the bell mando I built back in 04.

You've got to love the Summer (almost) months of outdoor gigs. This is from last Tues. playing at Wheeling Park's outdoor bandshell. Today (Sunday) we played an afternoon gig at an allday fundraiser then went on to play an evening concert outdoors. The weather was just about perfect.

Sorry to hear about your dad. It's a really hard thing losing your parents. My dad died last year, and my mother died just 10 days later. We had their memorial service together last spring. I am still reeling from the loss. One thing I have found is that it is a long process, that seems to have many layers to it.

Big hugs to you,
Chris

This pic had to post. On a recent (today) trip home from Hamilton, Ontario, where I was the Worst Man at the marriage of Kelly Jay (in the white protest shirt) we ran into two of Kelly's old pals: Officer John, and children's entertainer Fred Penner. The gag was to apply a Taser ;)(cell phone) jolt to Kelly to prepare him for the picture.

Hey Bill...............who's "Pete????" I never said I loved anyone named "Pete!!" (lol)

I believe that's mandopete, and the gentleman has already requested that he be "left out of this", as he would like to retain the love he has for his coffee-town 'Joe' and his mando (probably why he added it to his name). Now we all need to back off before he gets mad - and nobody want to see that, I'm sure...:whistling:

It's not my car, it's my dad's :-)
I hope the mandoline will last long, it's not much specials.
It only costed 60 euros, wich is extremely cheap.
At least, the highest string didn't last too long. I tuned it in the shop, I played a little and it broke.

Maybe, someday I'll buy a better one.
But I want to focus on guitar, since I also play guitar.
I play acoustic guitar for almost a year and a half, and electric guitar since almost a year.

My mandolin isn't much special,
I want an F-style mandolin!

Haha, but I can always buy a better, goodlooking, mandolin once I know how to play it.

From our annual Fathers Day sojurn to the North Beach Festival (this year they tried to throw us off and held it a week early. ;) ). The pictures have no mando content, but Al Fabrizio and Hugo Wainzinger were performing Italian classics on mandolin and guitar, respectively. Plus there was someone performing solo on a Nickleharpa, which I found fascinating. (Sorry, the music-related pics are trapped on my wife's phone, so I'll have to post them later.)

I'm just learning to play mandolin. I borrowed my Dad's for years but never got round to it. He recently asked for it back (he can't play it either), so I went out and bought a cheapie Washburn electrified model to replace it. Yesterday in church was the first time I ever played mando in public.

Upshot: no pics of me playing mando, yet. But I have lots of pics of me playing guitar or bass, so here's a couple of those.

Guitar first:

Er, thanks, but don't thank me for heroics unearned! I'm just a wellsite geologist, and I don't see any hazardous things other than the occasional scorpion and some wacky drivers. The folks in the military, on the other hand, deserve all our gratitude. They have to be outside in stuff like this all day long. I have A/C.

Yes, you're right at that. 122 F. And yes, it was that hot. Somewhere in my foggy dust-addled Oil Patch brain, I was mentally converting 40 C.

Most of the time I was on stage with the band, but when things started jumpin' (yes, Presbyterians do get excited) I came down to be with the young ones.

Finally got caught with a mandolin in a picture. I'm surprised my wife didn't tell me to smile but it's a pretty typical look for pictures. It may be the most visible expression of my Scotch-Irish background as I look more German (square head included) from my paternal grandmothers family.

Actually, it makes THEM look really big. Nothing like a klatsch of surly paramecia to make for a hard-to-please crowd. Especially if they start multiplying. You ain't been tomatoed until a bunch of intracellular plasma comes flying up the oculars.

Now that I've established an oozing glob of a metaphor, it is merely mundane little chips of limestone and dolomite with the odd pertoleum globule peeking tentatively out of scattered pores...

Maybe we could invent and market a "mando-bib" to hang around your neck to keep the snaps from scratching your axe? Like a big lobster bib, but with a picture of an F-5 on it?

D C Blood
Oct-05-2009, 1:29pm
I couldn't agree more about the bibs...I've tried to tell them, and they understand. They are not planning to ever sell those guitars, so a few marks on the back are not gonna bother them. A '94 D41 (my wife's) is not a particularly high value collector item. The D-76 Bicentennial model might be, but it was in pretty rough shape when we got it, so it's not likely to matter about a few marks. They won't play anyone else's guitars while wearing them, though...:disbelief:

It's true - the back of my old F-12 looked like it had been gone over by worms or miniature trench diggers or something. Might have been from buttons, especially all those post-"Urban Cowboy" western-style shirts I was wearing at gigs, the ones with metal buttons. By the time I noticed it was too late, much too late. :crying:

This is a long time after the quote, but I had to say, Duane wore a 'stache with mutton chops; it was Greg who had the big burns, no 'stache and a soul patch--FWIW.

To diminish the non-sequitor aspect of this belated thread, page 92 is where I found the misguided references to creative facial hair on icons not present to represent themselves; so, I took the liberty.

Carry on.

I don't know of a slick way, but you can always pause the video at the still you want, and hit the "printscreen" key. They open MS Paint (assuming you're on a PC), and paste the screen shot (ctrl alt v) into Paint. Then you can edit the resulting screen shot, cropping out the stuff outside the image. Kind of clunky; I'm sure there's a better way, but I don't know it.

Kind of clunky; I'm sure there's a better way, but I don't know it.

If you have a Windows machine, open the file (assuming it's .wmv) with Windows Movie Maker. There's a snapshot button that will allow you to take a still shot from the video and save it as a .jpeg.

If your video is only on Youtube, you can paste the Youtube URL in Media Converter (www.mediaconverter.org) and choose the file outpout type you desire. Then you can insert that clip into your editing software and get a picture from it.

I agree with Lee, there's really no super slick way of doing it; Nero's player will allow you to, but I'm not sure of others.

I posted a couple pics a number of pages back, but since I'm a noob mando player, I only had photos of me playing other instruments (guitar, bass). It just occurred to me that a month or so ago, I was asked by some friends to sit in on their closer at an outdoor event, and thus now have pics of me actually playing a mandolin:

Here's one of the slickest things I've found for capturing part or all of a screen. Very elegant to use. I use it almost daily for one thing or another. (Like swiping part of a mando picture off the web. :grin: )
Usually works on those pages that do not allow right-click copying too.
NFI

5 clicks (http://www.screen-capture.net/screen-capture/SpiderReg.asp)
There's a free trial version. I've used the $9.99 cheepo version for several years. You can save, copy, paste, print, or whatever.

I'm not sure if 2 Simpsons can be posted in a row! These are from a Friday night gig - Cabin Fever String Band. It was a nice full house on a cold winter's night. Sound man, Len Smith, also took the photos. He's good at both and it was great getting reaquainted with an old friend.

Okay, this thread needed a bump.

Here's me wearing my best Johnny Cash outfit as the emcee at last weekend's Wintergrass music festival. Thanks to Jean Gieger for the photo!

I'm on the far left with my first mandolin. It's some kind of Kentucky which I decided to paint blue one day. Played with these guys for 2 years '97, '98 based in Pekanbaru, Sumatra. We were called "Boedak Boedak Kecoh" which would roughly translate to "the Wild Boys".

Seeing Tom holding a severed head and apparently picking it's nose with a tool reminds me never to make fun of his Nudie suits.

Crash pad? That's a term I haven't heard since the '60's!

:)

The term actually was given new life beginning in the late '70's and '80's (through today) when the punk and "alternative" scenes came into their own. A lot of those bands tour out of a single van, and seldom make more than gas money and maybe enough for bread and peanut butter to eat. As a result of the "DIY" ethic of the scene, local music fans and musicians would offer their places as crash pads to touring bands. Back in pre-internet days, there was even an annual publication called "Book Your Own F*cking Life" that listed venues, local bands to put on your bill/contact, and crashes state-by-state and town by town, both in North America and around the world.

A copy of BYOFL was lying around when I and a friend were choosing a name for a new punk rock and roll band I was forming back in '96. I liked the sound of the term "Crash Pad" more than anything else, plus the hard/soft dichotomy between the 2 words, so that was chosen as our name. As a stage name, I eventually became known as Brian Krashpad, in accord with longstanding punk rock tradition (like Joey Ramone, etc.). I use the "K" spelling for the stage name because my legal last name also starts with a K, so either way my initials are BK.

Thanks. It was kind of an "audition" gig, in that we'd never played there before, so I brought two of my more expensive axes in hopes of being "taken seriously."

;)

I'd've brought a nicer mandolin as well, but all I gots is two cheapies.

Haha, please, I have enough trouble with mandolin! I'm still a novice player. I figured if I joined a band looking for a mando player it'd be a great way to hone my chops quickly. Subsequently, it turned out that their electric guitarist is not very available, so I've been playing about 2/3 of each set starting on mandolin and then switching to electric guitar.

Hi Pete:

I'm using a pick (it's just quite small). It's the small, firm, tear-drop shaped propitiatory pick sold by Acoustic Music Works (http://www.acousticmusicworks.com/). It's the pick recommended and used by their main mandolin instructor, Charley Rappaport (http://www.acousticmusicworks.com/lessons.html). I think these picks cost like $.60 each. Awesome - I love them!

I think my pick's a little more visible in this pix..

Yea that is a great photo. I will ask Wyatt about photo. Wyatt now is building mighty fine Mandolins and arch top guitars. I have 2 of his mandolins 1 built is 2009 and 1 built in 2010. If you want to see some photos of my new mandolins search my threads.

The Sonics? As in "Strychnine" ? They were the quintessential garage band and a Seattle icon to be sure! Funny you should mention the FB thing and connecting with old rock band friends. I was contacted by a guy that I played with in a band in high school and we have been exchanging photos and stories. Big fun!

No, that's Mike the bass player.

Actually I have no idea what kind of bass that was. He had a nice Fender amp, albeit a solid state amp. It was the first "big" amp we had in that band.

You know for years we tried to figure that out. He bought the guitar at a pawn shop and it had no identifying marks. We always thought it was a Mosrite.
