    Re: Norman Blake Tunes

    Stuck in a hotel in California, I took the opportunity to record Coming Down From Rising Fawn. Didn’t get it clean, but at least got it recorded in one take.

    Hey Richard. I’m in a hotel in Beverly Hills. C’est la vie.
  3. Re: Gender and age distribution of mando players

    Simple. The young women are playing their mandolins; the old men are posting on forums.
  4. Re: Reading mandolin music score by NOT using TABS

    You didn’t mention a genre, but if the music you’re finding is “only tabs” I assume you’re looking for/finding some type of folk music? If so, you might consider using the Tabledit program, because...
  5. Re: Just for fun and interest - favourite acoustic tones

    I don’t play all those instruments; if I could play like Doc Watson on guitar, Bran Oberlin on mandolin, Leon Russell on piano and Vic Wooten on bass I’d be happy.

    Re: Beginner getting into Bluegrass

    As soon as festivals resume, find one and go to it. Bring your mandolin.

    Re: Cool Stuff to Watch When not Playing

    +1 Sam Bush doc was awesome, I bought it as soon as it came out. I enjoyed How To Grow A Band, had seen it years earlier, it’s probably not for grassers though. BTW Echo In The Canyon didn’t do much...

  9. Re: Old photos - a hodgepodge of musicians - folkies +

    IIRC, you are from my home state of Louisiana and I think we're about the same age. I was a child of the 60's (b.Jan1955) and early 70's. I learned folk & mountain music from my relatives and from my...

    Re: How to build a solo?

    Hey Carl, I was just poking a little fun back at myself with that last comment, I enjoyed the funny comments you and JonZ had posted. Yeah, this thread is a bit of a ghost ship, the OP seems to have...

    Okay, has 'very little' to do with the point. I was using hyperbole for literary effect. :)~o)

    Re: How to build a solo?

    One final thought, Jon, on your recent post - because this subject is interesting, important, and ideas need to be tested.

    As an historical matter: Don Felder did not have any lyrics or melody...

    Re: How to build a solo?

    Most jazz musicians tend to play through the head before improvising off the rails. It's so good.

    Re: How to build a solo?

    Too funny Jon, you correct Carl for making an exaggerated blanket statement (ALWAYS start with the melody) and follow up with one of your own (you will NEVER engage your inner voice).

    I call BS. ...

    A couple of these kids grew to be famous folkies of the sixties.

    Re: I sure miss my Collings

    Well, I just was watching some old videos and got nostalgic all of a sudden. I kept a Washburn M106SWK that I've had a good while, and I play it for hours daily and gig with it a bit. I'm not...

    I sure miss my Collings

    No regrets on doing what I had to do, but I miss the feel and the sound of my Collings. Its now been (nearly) a year and a half (about 17 months) since I sold all my instruments and gear except for...

    Re: Why do you like the picks you like?

    I wasn't aware of any consensus :)

    I agree with Alan, it's a movable target. These days I'm usually reaching for nothing thicker than a 1.4 Wegen and most often it's a 1.2 JT's Pick or similar. I...

    Re: "Playing the circle of fifths"

    I think it depends on what you call "folk music", Joel. I play folk music, and I use the figures you speak of, but the folk music I play would be stuff that moves through early blues & ragtime, early...
