    Re: Let's hear your BEST musical joke?

    The suggestion that Journeybear might benefit from a psychological analysis of his unconscious mind due to his joke selection is very interesting. Who else could cause such a critical analysis of a...
  3. Re: Cheap beater mandolins that play, for leaving in the car etc?

    Over the years I have seen a variety of bowl back mandolins around your price range, in pawn shops. Pawn shops are usually a good place to search for less expensive, lower quality instruments. ...

    Re: From A Jack To A king

    From a Jack to a King, I played an Ace and I won a Queen, you've made me King of your heart. I'm trying to imagine this melody on solo mandolin. A lot of tremolo maybe?

    Re: Astroturf Noise

    Oh they definitely need a good versatile vocalist (soprano) for a more complete soundscape. A percussionist with a violin bow on the symbols may also fit in nicely. OK all kidding aside, I listened...
