    Re: Hand painted mandolins on the Cafe?

    Depending on what you want, it may be an advantage to get someone to artist up your mandolin.

    I had, played, and loved the Weber Aspen II, for many years, when I developed a fascination for cowboy...

    NMD: Morris F5 #482

    Last weekend I took a trip down to Irrigon to visit Sonny Morris and take a look at his mandolins. He was such a nice guy and built some really nice mandolins - I really liked his A4 as well. This...

    Re: Blues on the Mandolin - Let's Hear Ya!

    Love it, Caleb! Such a heartfelt melody. I think the blues can be anything that gets us into and processing our challenges.

    Thank you for sharing!
  4. Re: What Irish/Scottish music do Irish/Scottish people listen to?

    Sadly this podcast, The Blarney Pilgrims, is on hiatus now and not sure if the two fellas who present it have any plans to bring it back, but there are a wealth of episodes to listen back to - music...
  5. Re: What Irish/Scottish music do Irish/Scottish people listen to?

    Caleb, I understand the attraction to "old world" music.
    I think that's kind of universal.

    Where I live, in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire fiddlers such as Jonny Hardie and Paul Anderson can trace their...
  6. Re: What Irish/Scottish music do Irish/Scottish people listen to?

    My impression is that traditional tunes and songs are often performed and sometimes sold on CD at those gigs. But it seems to be difficult to get a recording contract based on traditional material....

    I still enjoy bands. I listen to Danu, Malinky, Old Blind Dogs, Bua, Tannahill Weavers. I also like Barry and Laura Kerr, Ye Vagabonds. It would help to know what you've got that you don't like to...

    What Dagger says, certainly as far as Scottish music goes, and I would add the very many excellent Scottish Country Dance Bands, generally accordion-led, with second accordion, piano, fiddle, bass...
  10. Re: What Irish/Scottish music do Irish/Scottish people listen to?

    Hi,

    In terms of listening I like fiddle music with Duncan Chisholm and Pete Clark being my favourites. They both lean towards slower paced tunes, which suit my ability to translate them to...
  11. Re: What Irish/Scottish music do Irish/Scottish people listen to?

    Depends what you feel like listening to.

    Gaelic singing - maybe Julie Fowlis or Kathleen McInnes.
    Fiddle bands - Blazin' Fiddles, Session A9, Fiddlers Bid.
    Fiddle- Duncan Chisholm is essential...

    Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    These Ibanez's are absolutely the real deal. I have owned a couple and loved them. (I get what you mean about the archtop and its similarities to acoustic guitars, and yet their ability to go...

    Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    At the beginning of the pandemic I bought a cheap HH Squire ($160), figuring I might have a little fun. I have since repalced everything but the neck, and a new one is on order. Now all the big...

    Looper pedals are an absolute blast! Perfect for practicing lead breaks and really nice for playing out. Get one with a separate “off” button. It will save you some embarrassment when you are...

    Re: Thumb wear on the neck
