    Re: Bedbugs And Mandolins

    Sorry to read of your dilemma journeybear and I can commiserate since we went through a similar episode several years ago. I had inadvertently hauled some bedbugs home to our bedroom from an...

    Congrats on the catch!

    Re: Douglas fir

    Interesting thread. I should check out this portion of the Cafe more often.

    Now that the summer outdoor season is upon us, I bought a pair of those wrist sweat bands that basketball players use. I got the idea after a sweaty, 2-hour farmers market gig last summer, and just...

    Re: "J'attendrai" Gypsy Jazz

    The mandolinist is David Holodiloff, who is in California. He has some other great videos out there. Here is one that I have played quite a few times.

    If you think that's bad, you should see how bad the riots are from the 12-string guitarists, and sitar players. And harpists, OMG!!

    Re: Eva Scow - After You've Gone

    Wow! I had never heard of her before. Thanks for posting.

    For the record, the second song is "Sunny Side of the Street". Easily confused with "Keep on the Sunny Side" (a Carter family song), and...

    Re: When You First . . .

    Sam Bush and David Grisman. This was in the mid 1970s.

    And using the associative property, mandolinists are better than guitarists. We deserve more expensive instruments. :mandosmiley:

    Re: National Reso-Phonic RM1 Hot Plate

    My RM-1 had the hot plate when I bought it used. I am not sure the need for the plug in because it is LOUD even played "acoustically". I have run it into my Carvin amp and the plugged in volume...
