    Re: Vinyl!

    I have an enormous LP collection, but very few of them are bluegrass. I'll bet I have more Grisman than the rest of my bluegrass albums combined. Not that Grisman is bluegrass, mind you, but his...

    I appreciate your attempt to introduce specificity into a thread right from the start. I wish you well in this endeavor. The thread title is a bit more inclusive, which invites chatterboxes (like me)...

  4. Re: A Gibson A3 in the white. In the white ó get it?

    Well, yes, to be sure. But also, I never said nor implied the band member bought it new; I simply said "purchased." And yes, from a dealer, or pawn shop, time-honored sources.

    It's easy to...

    Well, not as I understand the term, "cosmic," but if one believes the cosmos's natural state is chaos, then ... OK.

    Re: Jean-Luc on Mandolin

    The tune was written by Gary Moore, but played by Jean-Luc. Who does a very nice job of it, also the recording, mise en scene, and filming.

    Here's a live version by Gary Moore, of whom I'd been...

    I guess this is for people for whom pleasant, concordant, harmonic music just doesn't work. One advantage of this is they don't have to waste any time tuning up between ... songs - are they still...

    Hardy har har! :)) I was thinking of including myself as well, when I first saw this thread, but relented, thinking about my playing - which is far from solid - not the other sense you deduced. Well...

    Re: Thile can't chop chords

    I can corroborate that from personal experience. When I was playing in a jug band, part of my functionality was to synch up with the guitarist, both rhythmically and chordally. The guitar filled the...
  13. Re: Mando wall hanger at Paulís Coffee and Tea in CO

    Maybe yes, maybe no. I'm not so sure many people know what a mandoline is, either. Most home food prep is done on a cutting board with a knife. In America, anyway. I don't think the general public...

    And now for something completely different ... A jam session of sorts with The Chieftains, the Tuva throat singers from Mongolia, and Johnny Guitar Watson at Frank Zappa's house in 1993. :disbelief:...

    My friend Patrick Sky, who passed back in May, was great friends with Paddy, I believe going back to his Greenwich Village days in the 60s. I'm sure this contributed to his decision later to delve...

    I was thinking something similar: "I've got an F-4 and an A-4. That's enough. Isn't it? Isn't it?"

    It is. Or should be. Owning is supposed to keep one from desiring. But MAS is danged persistent!...

    Weird, but oddly cute. Although I would think that, copper being a somewhat soft metal, it might not serve well as a resonating sound production material. Brass, on the other hand ... :confused:

    I just remembered I keep forgetting to mention that the opposite - perhaps more correctly, the complement - of a hammer-on is the pull-off. It's sort of a means of discovering a lower note than the...
