    Watson's Blues

    Was having a little bit of fun with my buddy's Waterloo, decided to record a little take through this tune on a zoom mobile recorder.

    Re: Satan is Real movie

    I don't think so. The soundtrack was finished and recorded and I don't think they'd have spent that money without clearing the music rights. I believe that Ronnie McCoury was the lead mandolin player...

    Re: Satan is Real movie

    It would be a cracker of a true-life story for a musical biopic — but I may have to step out for popcorn every time Ira throws a fit at his mandolin for going out of tune and stomps it to splinters...

    I'm not sure that anyone has publicly reported the story of how the Monroe biopic fell apart. It involves folks including Finn Taylor, Peter Sarsgaard and Maggie Gyllenhaal, and others. T-Bone...

    Re: LR Baggs radius?

    I own a radius and have never liked it. Difficult to get a natural sound without a lot of eq. For years I was playing with a Pava A style using a small condenser mic on a gooseneck placed over the...

    Re: LR Baggs radius?

    Search the thread for eq'ing the Radius. Cut out freqs under open G, and all the body resonance noise goes away.

    Re: Tremolo Notation

    I'd tremolo all those notes! But the style I like in Italian mandolin playing uses lots of tremolo. Pretty much any note that can be tremoloed is, unless it's part of a fast run or needs to be...

    I played one at Gryphon a while back and it did not have the volume of a teens A. Sure was pretty though.

  22. Re: Norman Blake-Original Underground Music from the Mysterious S

    This is a highly underrated disc and well worth anyone's time who is interested in using mandolin for old time music. No, it's not bluegrass, and the mandolin's place is entirely different in the...

    Tim O'Brien

    I love the purity of this video. Tim and his Nugget mandola leave nothing else to be desired. A man, his mandola and a great song written by J.D. Hutchison.

    Enjoy!
