Hey guys!

Here's a fun clip featuring an awesome old, OLD school rhythm section.. :))

Played a gig on an old steamer called Östersund today!
http://www.bottleneckjohn.com/201006201550.jpg
Me and Östersund..

It was a blast and of course I just had to climb down to the boiler room to jam with the huge old engine!!!
Wonderful rhythm for a bluesy tune on the resonator-mandolin!! Check it out!!

Started playing mandolin(really trying now..) a few days ago and I'm having a great time playing blues mando!!!
Learning something new everyday, gimme 6 months and I'll be able to play it kinda properly, but here's just for fun for now.. :grin:

Ain't it just good fun to see and hear the old engine!!!!!! :mandosmiley:

That's even better than the jam with the idling tractor. John Hartford would be pleased to see this, I bet.

Okay, okay - can't bump this puppy without content.....

Took a couple of weeks off and rented a beach house at Surfside in Southern California. Great place to kick back, watch the waves and enjoy and adult beverage (or two).

Gotta get back to playing mando now.

I just got an email and FB friend request from the lead guitar player in my high school band "The Sonics" who I last saw in '66 and that lead to a few more contacts from the olden days. So I thought I should make a new profile pic showing what it is I do now.

I was in Owensboro (Monroe Camp) for about a day and this showed up on the front page of the local newspaper. Bobby took the time to run over "Cherokee Lady" with me then picked for a bit on my Red Diamond. The photographer said "That old fellar wanted to get his hands on your mandolin didn't he?" I left it unsaid that I too would have liked to get mine on his Fern...John

Had a wonderful time at a Larkin Poe concert this evening. Rebecca and Megan Lovell are SUPER nice folks who REALLY appreciate their fans. Rebecca graciously chatted with me endlessly about mandolins during the intermission, and after the show [my wife has been ribbing me ever since, saying (correctly!) that I was as 'giddy as a schoolgirl' while talking with her]...You'll see why below!...

63223
Rebecca and I chatting about mandolins. During the conversation I asked her about the playability of her Duff. Her response was...

63224
"Here, you try her, tell me what you think!!!"

What an incredibly generous (and GIFTED) performer Rebecca Lovell is!

BTW, the Duff was awesome! Great tone, razor close action...Just spectacular!

John Soper

So she's got the electrician's tape thang going on also? WWT?

Ed Goist

So she's got the electrician's tape thang going on also? WWT?

Hi John: Of course, that's one of the first things I asked her about when we started chatting...Unfortunately (for her - she was clearly somewhat distressed about the situation while telling the story) the support around the top of the peghead (up close, it looks like some type of tightly fitted plastic (?) cover or sheath, not tape) is structurally necessary.

She recently had the Duff dropped while being transported, and as a result the top section of the peghead scroll (just above the tuners) snapped clean off! She's now holding it back on with the support until she has time to send the mandolin back to Duff for repair.

Interestingly, the snapped section of the peghead seemed to have no affect on the mandolin's tone while she was playing (on a couple of occasions the Duff sounded so beautiful in her hands that it literally brought tears to my eyes!).

You know, maybe the peghead did affect the sound somewhat while I was playing the Duff...It didn't sound nearly so beautiful then...;)

John Soper
Oct-02-2010, 9:07am
A structural re-inforcement taping thing! I hadn't even considered that. I would have expected duct tape for that, but black tape is more classy. Hope she's able to get it repaired.

Here are a couple more I really like (please forgive the indulgence)...

Rebecca looks on as I play her Duff (the fact that this was my first exposure to coated strings [Elixers] was a fun conversation point!)

Okey dokey, this photo's decent enough that it won't scare the kiddies. Yes, folks, I am less than twice as tall as my instrument, but I don't find that to be a handicap in any way.

mandopete
Oct-05-2010, 1:07pm
Don't let him fool you Jim - that's really an A-style mandolin he's holding. I think Martin is really about 4-foot 5.

BTW Martin - Does Domino's know that you have their vest?

Charley E.,
I take it that is the mandolin you recently posted photos of while it was being built. You need to post some finished photos of it in another thread for everyone to admire.

Charles E.
Oct-30-2010, 4:56pm
Bill, actually the mandolin in the photo I built some years ago. It has a carved top and back and the head stock is my avitar photo. I am still working on the flat top. When it is finished I will post photo's for sure.

Very nice, Mick. You are perhaps overdressed for the occasion but that may be just the right way to go. The red touches are a great choice. Glad the photographer was able to find a way to snap some pics of you without the throng of admirers blocking the view. Again, gotta say, that is one gorgeous mandolin! :mandosmiley:

Left to right: Steve Calderwood, Bob Paul, Roger Van Zandt (drums, obscured), me (note Mandolin Café hat), Chief Billy, and Bob Hall (played in Savoy Brown). You can't tell, because my stage presence tends to run the gamut from apparent nonchalance to deer-in-the-headlights bewilderment, but I am wailing, burning, blowing people's minds with the MandoBird and Morley Volume/Wah.

Since I got my mandolin just before Christmas, my wife has picked up my guitar and we have lured in a couple of friends for the occasional jam session. They were husband/wife non-musicians but he has picked up the Bodhran and she the tinwhistle, harmonica, washboard, spoons... you name it.
We get together every couple of weeks for a jam session and have had an absolute blast. This weekend we jammed in their backyard and then took a couple of group/album cover style photos completely for fun. We've been laughing at them ever since so just thought I would share...

Thank you. I really love it even though it is about as cheap as they get. It has been so nice to have an instrument that I can just grab and play whenever I want to, and it doesn't disturb the peace as much as my flute does. For instance, no one would allow me to just sit out in the living room and play my flute all night.

I'm not sure if this will help you, Toby Bear, but this is what I did:
When you are replying to the thread, you should see a paper clip icon. If you click on it, a "file upload manager" window should appear. In this window there should be a button that says "Add Files." Upon clicking on this button, another window should appear with a button that says "select files." By clicking "select files" you should be able to upload a picture from your hard drive rather than a URL.

Here I am playing in my South Jersey Asian pear orchards during bloom. I should be blossom thinning (reducing bloom by cutting blossoms off the trees to produce larger, more flavorful fruit), but it's more fun to play. I tell my wife that playing to the trees causes them to produce better fruit, but she's not buying it. :grin:

My IV Kit is much better!

I did have a beach guitar - an LXM Martin. All laminate and very durable. It now resides in Mwitikira, Tanzania with the local Anglican rector. The only guitar in his village of 5,000 people.

This is a picture of me and my Neely #6,1991, I just acquired from a shop in Tennessee. It has a solid spruce top, maple neck with birdseye maple sides and back. It has tortoiseshell binding. It plays like butter and has a nice bark. After purchasing it, I called the number on the the inside sticker and talked to Bill himself. He still lives in Damascus, Virginia and is still building mandolins and guitars. I asked him if he had a web site and he said he didn't know how to work a computer but to come and see him in Damascus. I read a story how one of his customers brought one of his mandolins back for repair of a broken neck from a fall on stage. A month later, the customer received a package in the mail but instead of the old one, it was a brand new one built to the original specs. There was a note that said he made the original neck too thin and that it was his fault the neck broke so he hoped he didn't mind if he just built a new one for him. I think that says a lot about this builder. If you run into a Neely mandolin, buy it, you won't be disappointed.

He plays a custom made French mandolin. I don't remember the name of the builder, but it seems that he is a professional guitar maker and there are only two mandolins made by him so far. The one on the picture is #2. I played it for a while and i have to say that it was a decent instrument.

Within minutes of arriving we had an elk wandering around in front of the place. After that I had the family on standby: next time we saw an elk I was grabbing the Gibson and they were supposed to get a picture of me playing with the elk somewhere in the background. Alas, the area elk did not pay us any more visits so I had to settle for just scenery...

I spent a lot of time doing exactly what Phil was doing, sitting is a chair picking tunes by the Fall River and not too far from where Phil took his photo. I was up there the on the same day as Jim, and was surprised I didn't run into him downtown. We did stay the night of the 19th and listened to a 'local' band, Trout Steak Revival at the the Rock Inn. I missed the Thursday jam at the Inn. There could be a bluegrass culture moving into the tourist town! Dan

We actually have Yeungling way down here in FL. Surprised the heck out of me when I started seeing it all over, a nice alternative in the reasonable-price range of beer offerings hereabouts, so far from Pottsville. Turns out there's a brewery in Tampa. But good eyes there; had to look a bit harder to see what you saw. I was a bit distracted (as was Jim, it seems) by the guitarist. :redface:

Oct-04-2011, 9:05pm
Yeng (rhymes with ping) ling (rhymes with sing) is how I say it and hear it said up here. Often it's just referred to as "...you want a lager?" where the brand is implied.

Jamie

journeybear
Oct-04-2011, 9:17pm
I usually hear it as "Yeng" -ling. I used to think it would be pronounced "Yoongling" (as the "ou" in "would" would be), but I don't think I've heard it that way. I hope it isn't pronounced "Yoingling" (like the "eu" in "Freud") - that would be a bit too weird. I have yet to see a commercial - that would settle it. ;)

Aha! "Ying" -ling it is. Here we go:

(video snipped)


Ahh, leave it to YouTube! I looked also, and there was another (funny) ad, below which someone commented the following:

"The name Yuengling is actually derived from the German name Jϋngling which means young man or 'teenager'. This is pronounced 'Yoongling'. I wonder why Yuengling is pronounced 'Yingling'."


Ha - I should have made that connection from my 2 years of high school German!

'Yoongling' isn't exactly the right rendering of the umlauted ϋ sound, either. Actually, saying "Yingling" - with the mouth opened just the right way as if to form an "o" - does a better job of it. But of course, we Americans tend to Americanize every pronunciation, anyway!
:))

Oh yeah - here's the funny ad:

journeybear
Oct-06-2011, 8:54am
I apologize for my error and also on behalf of everybody else contributing to this thread for misspelling Yuengling as "Yeungling" :redface: :disbelief: :crying: - except for bratsche, who was either too kind to point it out or didn't notice himself! :whistling: Being set straight by a violist - how will we ever live this down? At least there was no banjo involved! (Obviously clutching at straws there ...) No umlaut, either, FWIW, if anything ... Thanks also to bratsche (and Jamie), I will now pronounce it "Yingling," but I will also insist on pronouncing "peanut" as I always have.

Wait - upon further review I see bratsche misspelled it too in his first post. 'Pon my word, we are slipping! Next thing you know, we'll be playing Gb instead of F#! Oh, the horror! :disbelief:

I've also added an album of my Mandos (http://www.mandolincafe.com/forum/album.php?albumid=1230)

Thanks for being a good sport. :grin: Was worried. I do this myself, but so does everyone else around here so I can get away with it. Still, it's a good thing the webcam at the gig is so far away from the stage. ;)

Oh, no problem.
Isn't it unfortunate that the characteristic I most have in common with Johnny Winter isn't his playing ability? :grin: :mandosmiley:

Glad I complied with the rules :grin: What I am finding out is its easier to take a picture of a mandolin than it is to learn how to play it. Making proress, but painfully slow. I wonder if a violin is easier. ;)

We went to St. John a week or so ago and while at Island Blues, in Coral Bay, I discovered this beauty on a shelf. The bridge was broken so it was unplayable.

Just got back from visiting family up north for three weeks. My Dad is in a skilled care nursing home since having a stroke last year, and the people in the unit he's in really love it when I (or any musician) play for them. My Dad even told me he prefers listening to my mandola over my viola, which I had brought with my on my last visit, over Christmas (but I'm not quite sure how to take that! LOL)

Here's a picture of me serenading the troops with Bach on my MidMissouri M-16 mandola at a small 'watermelon social' gathering they held the afternoon before I hit the road to drive back home.

The gentleman in the orange t-shirt is my Dad, and the lady next to him is my lovely stepmother.

Here I am performing with The Combinations at last week's Darrington Bluegrass Festival in Darrington, WA. It was quite an honor for me, a guy from Southern California, to be included in this classic group that has been a mainstay of the festival since it's inception 36 years ago.

Would that the beard was still coloured in, but alas, that was in the '80s, and the zouk eventually fell foul of a flood (having survived 2 months hiking in temperatures sometimes over 100°, sleeping in the open and falling down a cliff with the owner in tow!)

If already posted, my apologies. My 1930s National electric mando from dobro parts, with half the strings on it for now since I keep popping one of them too easily. That chaise corner on the sectional is so comfortable...

This is our band. I'm on the far left. We've been at it for about 2 months and I'm new to mando so I'd much rather play in our band than have to listen to it. But what we lack in talent, we almost make up for in heart. Having fun and occasionally get a goose pimple. We'll be OK in a year.

That is what my wife says. :)

She is just happy I didn't buy that one -- now we can eat for another few months.

BTW I am pretty sure I played every mandolin in that room that day. The 12 string D'Angelico in the corner (under the Giacomel) was particularly odd.

I agree. That picture wants to be in a frame on the wall.

Here's a shot of me playing in my first "gig" - a friend's birthday party, with several dozen guests that I hadn't met before, in a local music venue. I played with my two guitarist friends, one of which is the birthday girl's husband.

It was the first time I have played on a stage, and the first time with amplification. Throughout the evening, I could barely hear what the two other guys were playing or singing, and I was convinced that we must sound rubbish. But the sound guy knew what he was doing, the sound seems to have been fine in the hall, and all feedback so far has been positive.
