    Re: Dave Olney rests in peace

    I read about his death in the NYT this morning. He was on stage with friends, said "I'm sorry," to the audience, and just put his head down and fell silent. Didn't even drop his guitar. Pretty...

    Very cool. Doubles as a canoe paddle!
  3. Re: Here's why you are an amazing mandolin picker but still dumb

    If those "scientists" are so smart, why am I an amazing picker but still ugly?

    You can't explain that.

    Re: Chris Thile's new pick

    Twenty five bucks. I'm afraid the best I can afford just now is to sound like Steve Earle. Either that or search through the couch cushions for my Blue Chip.

    Re: Who?

    I wasn't there, but I heard that Frank Wakefield paid a couple of very backhanded compliments to a much loved mandolin player from around these parts, telling him: "I like what you're trying to do...

    Re: Who?

    I have sort of a Norman Blake, anachronistic vibe going on. Except I'm hella slow. So, imagine Norman Blake on horse tranquilizers. Maybe something like that.
  7. Re: Article: Weber Fine Acoustic Instruments Rolls Out New Models

    It looks a lot like a Collings MF, although nothing about the tone woods or the x bracing is suggestive of an MF. It's just a cosmetic thing.

    Re: Pre NAMM discussion

    All of my mandolins are hit or miss on whether they have a C in them on any given day.

    Re: Love Bluegrass but....

    Years ago Norman Blake taught at Steve Kaufman's Kamp and told his classes (klasses?) that he was there to give them permission to play slow.

    If it's good enough for Norman, it's good enough for...
  13. Re: Flop Eared Mule -- by Stephen Foster (?!?!?!)

    I haven't picked that tune in years and years and never liked it much, but Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers do a nice job with it.

    I played a used F9 a couple of months ago that left me with the same impression. Maybe with a great set-up and some time getting to know it when I wasn't playing it in the middle of the shop with...

    Standing ovaton. That was worthy of posting on Mandolin Monday.

    I need to play my octave more.
  17. Re: Of your favorite instruments that qualify for this site...

    My new Collings MT2-O is getting 90% of my playing time right now. But it's great to pick up my Pava A for a change of pace and tone. They're very different instruments. Love them both. I can't...

    Re: What's The One That Got Away?

    I don't think I've had that experience with a mandolin I was contemplating buying. I've sold a Collings MT and an Ellis F5 Deluxe that I wish I had back.

    Re: Lamar Grier passes

    I've been a fan of David Grier for many years. I knew he came from a musical family, but I didn't know anything specific about his dad. Thanks for sharing this sad news.

    Yup. Same. Mine's been to Iceland, Scotland, Costa Rica, the Cayman Islands, and all over the US, among other places I've probably forgotten about.
  22. Re: Going out of the country...personal item/carry-on?

    I've carried on a mandolin in a gig bag more times than I can count, but I think I'm done with that program. They won't fit under the seat, and it's too stressful to watch the other passengers...

    Beaumont is really more like Louisiana culturally than it is Texas. I'm not surprised to hear that the picking scene is pretty thin. There are a number of regular jams in Houston, about 90 minutes...
