    Re: Some days are like that . . .

    I believe there is an old Irish proverb that says something like; 'A good sleep and a hearty laugh cures many ills.'

    It has often worked for me . . . or, if all else fails, some self-indulgent...

    Re: I'm buying a Mandolin

    As Ray pointed out, The Eastman and Kentucky are your most likely candidates, based on their reputations - but as a guitar player I am assuming that you already have a good feel for action,...

    Re: Song Writers???

    A friend a fellow band mate once offered me the advice that you had to grab people with the first line of the lyric. If the song starts with something absolutely banal, you just might lose them for...

    Re: Some days are like that . . .

    Call me crazy, but to me 'playing in my head' is an integral part of music routine. I work at a pretty mindless job, so if you could read my mind at any given time during the work day, there is a...

    Re: my two mandolins

    An f-hole model and an oval-hole model . . . that's a great way to start and to explore your mandolin 'voice'.

    Play, learn, enjoy and keep us posted.

    Re: Sellerís Remorse - 2008 custom Weber Fern

    I would love to have my old Rigel Custom R-100 back . . . but much like my hairline, it's gone and most likely will never be seen again.

    Re: beside the mandolin.

    I tried the banjo back in the mid-1980's, but failed miserably at it; (much like attempts to learn lap-steel, accordion, violin, harmonica, pedal-steel and trombone). Obviously I have a strong love...

    Re: Uh oh THE Gibson may have a problem

    I once remember reading that Glenn Frey made a big deal about the fact that his band was called 'Eagles' without the 'The' in front of it . . . I guess he saw all of this coming, 50 years ago.

    A former band mate of mine attempted to go to Woodstock, but got stuck in halted traffic for several hours before he and his friends decided to turn around and find the nearest bar.

    He missed...

    Re: Out of my league

    Unless I am mistaken, ANY musician who can afford a Loar can claim it as a business expense, and use it as a tax write-off . . . so, it can serve the triple purposes of being a player, investment and...

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

    It 'could be a collector's piece' . . . and I 'could be the King of Spain' - but neither is likely.

    I suspect that I, and even my kids and/or grandchildren, will be long dead by the time that...

    Re: If You Don't Perform In Public....

    First and foremost - I do not own a high-end mandolin, and most likely never will . . . unless someday I come across a nice Gilchrist at Goodwill for $100 - but I'm not holding my breath on that one....

    Actually, I kind of like it . . . I just don't $6,700 like it . . .
  23. Re: What is the most mandolins you've owned at one time?

    I think I topped out at about 4 or 5 mandolins. On the other hand, my highest total of various stringed instruments at one time was 36.

    Yes, I have the same 'condition' as William . . . and...

    Re: Vintage Gibson oval hole

    Believe it or not, I got turned on to Gibson ovals by watching old videos of Dash Crofts of Seals & Crofts. It is something that I would like to lay my hands on - someday when I am worthy . . . .
