    Re: The cure for MAS

    Got to put it in a letter to be delivered after your passing, or in your will, something. You'll be out of harm's way and won't hear her cursing. ;)

    Re: Mandolins in the Movies

    Apparently, mandolins at the time had only three strings and two tuning pegs. Well, it was the Great Depression and supplies were short, and people were cutting back ... :whistling:
  3. Re: Cheap beater mandolins that play, for leaving in the car etc?

    Don't castigate yourself for getting a better instrument than planned. It's how it should be. ;)

    I played a Rogue once, years ago, a year or two after they hit the market. I had joined in with...
  4. Re: Cheap beater mandolins that play, for leaving in the car etc?

    I think some of you are missing the point of that reference, can't see the forest for the trees, in other words. It wasn't anything specific, just a general warning about leaving the instrument in...

    Re: Thanksgiving Thoughts

    Nah. Gonna pass on that. But I think I'll play "Alice's Restaurant." Arlo's retired; someone's got to keep it going. ;)
  6. Re: Cheap beater mandolins that play, for leaving in the car etc?

    I have to wonder why a store would have it for so low; their prices generally run higher than private sellers to account for overhead.

    Also, bear in mind the OP is in the UK. Shipping costs ......

    Re: Thanksgiving Thoughts

    It seemed fitting and proper to bump up a thread of this topic and nature today, rather than start a new one. There were plenty to choose from, for one, and this one contains not only a whale of a...

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    Right. Far from it blocking the sound coming out of the treble f-hole, it resonated, initiating the production of even more brilliant tones and higher volume. Ever notice how much people ask for...

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    Right? The damage it sustained didn't affect its playability, at least after the luthier was done fixing it. Of course, it's no longer collectible, which in some ways is a good thing - it kept the...

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    You're right! An A doesn't become an A2 all by itself, and no amount of ad copy can change that. Seller should take a look at his own photos, FCOL. :disbelief: And as beat up as this is, asking a...

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    It may have been hard to tell, but I was being sarcastic. Way sarcastic. (We really need an eye-roll emoji. :whistling: ) I'm happy with what I've got. Sure, I'd have liked it for less. But I was...

    Re: Ever heard of a "guitar chair?!"

    Yes. A chair, generally, is something a person can and will sit upon. In other words, something someone can put his or her sit-upon upon. ;) There are many variations, and one without a back or arms...
  14. Re: Cheap beater mandolins that play, for leaving in the car etc?

    Ha ha ha! I get it, but it's worth remembering. ;) I had choices, but I went with this version - because I was there! :grin:

    I got as far as:

    2) supportive of your busking,
    3) your partner in busking,

    I wouldn't be surprised if some people were posting ads for the same chair at different sites with different names aimed at the owners of corresponding instruments. ;)

    Re: Ever heard of a "guitar chair?!"

    I can see that, although it's a bit heavy at just under 20 lbs. But I like how the height is adjustable. And furthermore, how that can be fine-tuned by the screw-tips, which would compensate for...

    Re: Ever heard of a "guitar chair?!"

    Looks more like an end table to me. ;) A flat surface like that tends to be uncomfortable for sitting after ten minutes, even less. And the price on that makes the guitar chair a bargain in...
  21. Re: Cheap beater mandolins that play, for leaving in the car etc?

    A cheap beater that you wouldn't mind leaving in the car? That'd be a banjo. :whistling: Hide it, though, or you might come back to find someone's put another banjo there. :crying:

    I'm impressed by the pick damage below the strings. I believe that demonstrates some serious enthusiasm in your playing. ;)

    Thanks for posting that. I would have been there in person if I could have gotten all my ducks in a row for my vacation/festival tour/road trip last summer. I love that little festival; it's done...
