P.S. My photos are on my pc and not on a website, and the one I wanted to post is only 728 kb. I tried "drag and drop" and "copy" and "Cut-n-paste" and "browse" but none of these choices seemed to work?http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif???

The maximum image size is 153.6KB. That 700+ one won't make it. You can resize it and post it one it is smaller.

Here are Grandmainger's excellent resizing instructions. (http://www.grandmainger.com/picpost/)

I guess I don't know how to do this. Does a picture have to be of a certain size, type, etc? I'm attaching from a file on my computer as opposed to web. I tried to follow the directions from the Miscellaneous area.

Bill Snyder

If the picture does not meet the size and file type requirements of the Cafe then you get a message when you post advising you of the problem.
You also have to post an image from your computer using the ADD REPLY button and not the Quick Post button.

Just got a copy of this picture from a friend with whom I played this concert. We were the "Bluegrass Ensemble" at the Settlement Music School's 90th Anniversary Gala Concert. We were the closer of an evening that featured
Classical, Greek, Jazz, & Chinese string music. This was in 1998 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. After the concert we were invited to hang out at a reception that featured a dance band plus refreshments. It was a great gig!

I just returned from a week-long camping trip at Kalaloch beach on the Olympic Peninsula. #Usually I don't bring a mandolin along as I never seem to have any time to play it.

This time I found a nice little bluff that overlooks the Pacific ocean and set down to pick for awhile. #I figure if you have to practice, you may as well have something nice to look at.

BTW - I will be entering the "whitest" legs contest!

Me and my pal Nelson playing a couple of unsung heroes.
Albert Shutt made these (well, the one on the left for sure) in Topeka Kansas at the start of the 20th century (1910 - 1915 or so). He was also a band leader, composer, arranger and teacher.
The neck joins the body at the 12th fret.
It has a carved top and back with f-holes.
It has an elevated fingerboard and elevated pickguard and adjustable (for intonation) bridge.
These features were introduced again on another model of mandolin in 1922 that left a far greater impact on musical history.

I wonder is Ainge plays the Mando in his spare time???

Ainge is the starter right now, so no two-QB system(i hope).i think you'd find Crompton playing one before Ainge. from talking with players and coaches, the guys seem to have their heads on straight. only time will tell i guess, but i cuoldn't take another losing seaon either!

Here's a pic from Winfield earlier this month. #These guys were camped nearby and were belting out some great tunes. Friday nite I intruded and asked if I could pick with them. Several tunes later and after the whiskey bottle made it around a few times they graciously invited me to join them for their 8:30 show on Stage 5. Fueled by liquor and camaraderie, I marched with them through the dark campground to Stage 5 where we did a 30 minute set!

That's me on mando and the other fellas are a band from Wichita called Fistful of Nickels. #Dig the melodica... #Good fun!

Cetecea
Oct-02-2006, 2:55pm
It's an annual event. Small New England town kind of thing. The dumps (transfer stations) are somewhat of social center. They have free food and usually some kids selling candy for sports teams, politicians, etc. People come in and out to drop off trash and recycle (mandatory) and hang out for a bit. We do it as sort of a lark....

OK, here's me w/ my beach mandolin (my only mandolin). Can you guess my location the way everyone guessed the Lake Michigan girl in the "women and mando" thread? Hint: It ain't Lake Michigan. Not even close. Another: Ernest Hemmingway used to deep sea fish here. One more: One of the top five beaches on the planet. OK, answer: Melindi (Watamu) Kenya. That's the Indian Ocean for those of you geographically challenged. I wondered if an fhole mandolin had ever been played there before.

Hi Chris, Good to from you. Kaufman Kamp was great as always and can't wait till next year. I just went to the Bill Monroe style camp in Owensboro KY. That also was a good camp because thats the style of play I like to do most. Remenber if you get to Orlando call me there are some good bluegrass jams on every Friday night and on the 2nd & 4th saturdays of the month. I thought I had a picture of you jaming with Tony,Marshall(the tall guy 7')and myself by the cafeteria.
