  1. Re: Live From Here Joni Mitchell musicians' birthdays

    The show video is no longer available, but they were nice enough to put the Joni Mitchell birthday segment on youtube. At least skip to "A Case of You" as the last song. Knocks me out. Powerful.

  2. Re: Article: Guess the Mandolin Dawg is Playing, Win $100 Gift Ce

    I think I got the tracks with the oval. Telling the difference between Crusher and the Fern might as well have been a coin flip.

    Compton and Newberry show

    This is a great show. Two instruments, two voices--masters.

    Knocked me right over.
  5. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    Incredible show tonight!! The Joni Mitchell musicians' birthdays segment blew me away--Aoife especially, but the whole band just nailed everything about those songs.
  6. Live From Here Joni Mitchell musicians' birthdays

    The whole musicians' birthday segment featured Joni Mitchell songs. Aoife O'Donovan really nailed a couple songs. Skip to the middle of the video if you watch nothing else. Unbelievable renditions....

    Re: What is this wood figuring called?

    I had an Engelmann Heiden that had that figure in spades. Michael said it was perfectly quartered. Figured top, back, and sides.

    Re: Anyone taking online lessons?

    If you're a beginner, I'd recommend a Skype lesson. I see beginners on ArtistWorks who have pick direction problems and practice that way for a couple weeks (or more if Mike's on tour) while waiting...

    Re: In praise of mandolin builder Matt Ruhland

    The Ruhland neck is custom. Matt used a mandolin I used to own that now lives in Portland as a template and then modified the neck it to be a little less deep. The Ruhland neck turned out slightly...

    Re: In praise of mandolin builder Matt Ruhland

    I went with the old bridge sitka--Matt seems to really like how that wood works for mandolins.

    Re: In praise of mandolin builder Matt Ruhland

    The Heiden is 9 years old and has a more complex and mature voice. Really not a fair comparison. The Ruhland's really amazing for brand new and has a lot going for it already. I think it needs some...

    Re: In praise of mandolin builder Matt Ruhland

    #37 arrived a week ago. Enjoying getting to know it and what it has to offer which is a lot. My Heiden is jealous right now. Will make a recording whenever I get some time--it already inspired a new...

  16. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Did you catch the Carter family got $1000/month in recording royalties in 1929? That's serious money--a lot of musicians would be thrilled to clear $1000 a month in record sales today.

    Your playing is even more impressive than your stack of firewood! Thanks for sharing this music with us and your experience that led to it.

    Michael's setups are the best I've ever played. Thanks for all the photos of Michael's shop. That pic of Tai with John and David is so great!

    Re: Multi-track Recording?

    Reaper is free to try, but it is not free. It depends on people doing the right thing and paying for it so you don't need a dongle and it doesn't have all kinds of copy protection crap on it. Pay the...
  23. Re: My 4th mandolin build, 2nd one built from scratch

    Can I put the first scratch on it? Looking great, Jacob! Can't wait to hear it.
  24. Re: What is the most mandolins you've owned at one time?

    It's a simple formula.

    n=m+1

    where n is the number of mandolins you need and m is the number of mandolins you have.
