    Re: Need some advice.

    Actually, R&B stuff can be played on mando and fit. The trick is... you MUST understand how the rhythm guitar(s) function in that genre. There a lot of guitar backup figures which are on the top...

    Always sad to see the anniversary of this article roll around. Stan and that experience of making the pilgrimage to State Island and Mandolin Brothers is a fond memory for so many.
  4. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    You hit the nail on the nail on the head. Burns has put together a series of country music stories, which - together with other stories that he left out - make up the story of country music. I...
  5. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    By coincidence, while watching the CM episodes, I've been reading Daryl Sanders That Thin Wild Mercury Sound about Dylan's recording of Blonde on Blonde in Nashville.

  6. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    I believe the video on Youtube (and on this documentary) is from another film documentary but I can't check it from where I'm at right now. I'm a huge Townes fan as well as Guy and Steve.

    OK, it...

  11. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Yes, I noticed Mike Seeger's mid 50's Gibson F5. Shown in part 5, in part 6 you get to hear it. My take on the 8 part series (1:50 mins each so not quite 2 hours, but the DVD set will have extra...

    For anyone so inclined, the Facebook Group is fun and informative.
  13. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    I'm consistently amazed at how much of the story I already know and also by how much of the story I don't know about. I count that as part of the latter. :cool:

    All in all great stuff.

    Re: 1915 Gibson A Pickguard issue

    Charlie Derrington would call this "slip-matched", if I'm not mistaken. The matter actually appears somewhere earlier in this thread.

    The Sun Jumped Up This Morning
