    I'm generally interested in seeing nice instruments and good builders, but like DavidKOS I also have an interest in Mediterranean music, especially from Crete, and in seeing people doing something a...
  5. Re: Where have all the Irish bouzouki / cittern players gone to?

    This thread over a year ago sparked my interest and I first learnt of a number of Irish instrument makers through it.

  7. Re: What kind of mandolin is Johnny Winter playing in this photo?

    I used to be a big Johnny Winter fan. I had his albums Johnny Winter and Second Winter, and I thought of him as an influence on my playing.

    The redoubtable Mandocrucian did some research on his...

    Re: Taran Springwell

    That's interesting.

    I usually take my Collings to sessions. I think it cuts through better, but the Sobell has a fuller sound on stage.

    Re: Taran Springwell

    It is hard to keep fingers and brain up to full speed. I sometimes think that going to a session and playing for about 3 hours is the equivalent of a sports person training.
    Taran is sounding good....

    Re: Arlo Guthrie Retirement

    Just read the article. He does sound like he's ready to retire.

    I did see him actually. He appeared at a big pop festival here in the North Of Scotland called Belladrum.
    Excellent performer....

    Re: Mandolin to DADGAD

    I know a number of guitar players who I have only ever heard playing in DADGAD. That is their style and that is what they do.

    So if that is your interest, then I really can't see why not.

    Lockdown has obliged many of us to do more things like Zoom, do video clips for Facebook or sometimes create instructional material.

    I got up quite early today, and while waiting for daylight I decided to record Leaving Stoer on my octave mandolin. I find the bass strings tuned up to A to be really effective in playing this tune....
