    Re: Mandolin Orange on today Show

    I'm not a big fan of M.O. and what I perceive to be so many 'downer' songs. Sometimes I think Maudlin Orange would be a better name.

    That's just me though and my taste. There's no denying those...

    Re: The end of my playing days.

    I'm gonna throw out a guess here Timothy.

    I think the picture shows Ivan's recommended method for holding string-loops in place while doing string change... Blue Tack.

    Re: Hope this never happens again

    Great news! I'm happy to hear that high-dollar fiddle is back in the hands of its rightful owner/caretaker.
    For a time, I wondered if the whole thing was a hoax.

    Re: 1923 A4 Gibson Value

    That's the question. Hard to believe anyone offered opinions on value without that bit of information.

    Re: DR MD-11 mandolin strings

    Well Nick, by the tone of your post (to me anyway), it sounds like this is a recent, happy discovery for you... the whole DR thing. So I thought maybe you'd be interested to know that the DR MD-11s...
  9. Re: 10 high end guitars seized by Moose & Goose, find good homes,

    Here is a quote from the article: The guitars feature Brazilian rosewood — protected by an international treaty — and can’t be exported without permits, Andrews said.

    Re: "Powerful/Loud!"

    That's a fact Jack! (or Jeff as the case may be)

    A few players (and singers) come to mind who can be easily heard; not necessarily to the betterment of the proceedings.

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

    Not sure which misquote you're referring to but I know I heard a few.
    I love Dwight, but when he mixed up Long Gone Lonesome Blues with Lovesick Blues I almost dropped my bourbon.

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

    As you know, they warned us in the preview show that they couldn't, and didn't cover every Country Music musician to everyone's satisfaction. I expected to be disappointed with some of those...
  16. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Good question... and one that I wonder about myself.
    All I know is that whether they want it or not, the folks I visit at the nursing home are gonna get more Jimmy Rogers than usual this week.
  17. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    I completely agree Timothy. Nothing I would criticize about the pacing of "Ken Burns signature style".

    That was great! Maybe not as much fun as the Hi-Fi but fantastic none the less.
