    Re: Bardic inspiration for role playing games.

    I'll second the music from Allan Alexander. I have several of his books. They are easy enough and you can get the idea enough to add ornamentation if that's your thing.

    Re: Philphool, Phil Goodson, passes :(

    I'm also sad to hear this. Phil was a classy contributor. My condolences to those who knew and loved him here and in real life.

    Re: Newbie from Texas says Howdy

    Welcome to the Café! First mandolins can cover a lot of ground. I wrote this 10 years ago and it still applies. Maybe use D'Addario EJ-74s (rebranded) and make it $10 on picks. As a guitar...

    Re: Info on this Mandolin

    To my (not too refined eye) it looks like one of the massed produced mandolins from the early 1900s made in Chicago (going by scratch plate) they were often rebranded under many names. Can you post...

    Re: String change frequency

    There are several factors that affect how frequently folks (should) change strings. Skin acidity, frequency of play, playing conditions (humidity), and material and type of windings strings are made...

    I have a feeling the Col was a bit like Gene Simmons. He'd sign anything... for a buck(et).

    Re: Buy without trying

    I have had similar experiences to others. All but one of my instruments I purchased without playing it first (and even that one I knew I was gonna buy anyway - the custom Spira). I only had two not...

    Re: Heads up for you Mandolinists with Cats

    My cats are such jerks at knocking over vases of flowers we just don't have them in the home anymore. Hope yours bounce back to being lovable jerks soon!

  14. Re: Hello All. I'm new here, first post. Loving the mandolin.

    Hey! Welcome to the Cafe. The Eastman is a fine instrument. For many people it is enough. Certainly for lots of folks who even play for actual money. Have fun experimenting with picks and string...

  18. Re: Concert of Swedish folk music with bouzouki and mandobass

    That was a hoot. Great tunes and such an anachronism of costuming. I particularly enjoyed the pinup on the Mandobass like it was an old B17!

    Re: Very small mandolin

    I think that's what folks used to call a pocket mandolin or a piccolo mandolin. Think one octave higher in pitch than a mandola.

    Re: Bluegrass/Old Time in New Orleans?

    I'm a reasonably frequent visitor to NOLA and can't say I've heard much in the way of Grass or OT there. Certainly not in the Quarter. There is a huge and rich music scene there. Jazz and Zydeco /...
