    Re: Why play Mandolin?

    Because it's there.


    (Thanks and/or apologies to George Mallory.)
  3. Re: Where do the names F-style and A-style actually come from?

    R U kidding?!? :disbelief: No? :confused: Oh. OK ... :whistling:

    I'm more than willing to accept the "A" designation as representing the first style, the starting point. I have never seen anything...
  4. Re: multi-instrumentalists: how do you manage your time?

    Good thing you're in Ireland. This wouldn't go over too well in Oakland. :cow:



    Very few have even made the attempt, as far as anyone knows.

    There are rumors of some such occurrences, but...
  5. Re: multi-instrumentalists: how do you manage your time?

    I respectfully disagree. If you play only one instrument, and you are avoiding practicing, yes, you know which one it is. If you play many instruments and are avoiding practicing, you know that's all...
  6. Re: Where do the names F-style and A-style actually come from?

    Oh, now! Everyone knows (or should) it stood for "Mandola." ;)



    Somehow, recently, I ended up looking through C.F. Martin's and the company's history, having stumbled onto a fascinating...

    Re: Hot Shot Players on Electric Mando?

    I don't know him. But a bit of my brilliant amateur sleuthing reveals that he is Tony Rothrock, with Rhonda Bozikis on the keys.

    If you watch this on youtube, you'll get to his channel. He plays a...
  8. Re: multi-instrumentalists: how do you manage your time?

    When you say "farm chores," does that include milking the cows and chickens, as in the refrain of this charming ditty? :confused:

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

    Well, it IS rare, right? Though I don't know if it's very rare. :confused: Nor, for that matter, very very rare. :confused: And no, I'm surely not Sirius. And don't call me Shirley.
  10. Re: Where do the names F-style and A-style actually come from?

    I've heard or seen a rumor to the effect that "F" stands for "fussy" and A for "awright awright awright!" :cool:

    I've no idea if that's true, and the latter seems anachronistic, but that's how...
  11. Re: Mandolin Mondays #315 Featuring Eva Scow

    Too marvelous for words! (I think that's another song.) The amount of time, skill, and effort that went into producing this quiet marvel is astounding and much appreciated. :mandosmiley:

    Oh, that's fine, I think. :confused: There's room in the world for...

    Re: H 1 mandola on SGW

    In other words, if this gets crazy (like it looks like it's going to) and you still have a hankering, take a look at this H-1: emando.com/shop/dola/Gibson_H1.htm It's just as nice, maybe even nicer....

    Re: Why play Mandolin?

    To extend your analogy: log some hours, spruce up your technique, and soon when you play out they'll pine for you to never leave. Just never forget your roots. :grin:

    Re: H 1 mandola on SGW

    The last two numbers look like 06, pretty sure of that. But it's the first 2-3 numbers we really need. :whistling:

    So I first learned about this around 3 PM EST, and got to see it a half hour...

    The model name and number may be faded but are clearly legible; SN is almost completely gone. It would have been handwritten in pencil, right? :confused: Otherwise looks decent, if a bit worn. Glad...

    Re: Have you ever seen anything like this?

    So that piece is removable? Because it's gone in the second song. Unless she switched instruments. I really like the right hand technique. Those very fast notes she gets pulling the fingers in...

    It was kind of a rhetorical question, but you gave it an intriguing answer, after some consideration. And that me to thinking about my own on-again-off-again relationship with the mandolin - though...

    Re: My Rock and Roll Mandolin Songs

    Cool stuff. Two very different songs and sounds using the same instruments - quite a pair, indeed. I like that. I guess the comment element is you and your versatility. Good going! :mandosmiley:

    While that may be true, it's also true that threads often develop lives of their own, often independent of the OP. The originator may offer guidance and direction along the way, but many times OPs...

    Re: Ronnie Spector, RIP - And MC

    Noice. I'm not sure I had a crush on her, as such, but I loved her voice. That's not strong enough - I lurved her voice. ;)

  25. Re: On Shopgoodwill: tape over the logo and serial number. Why?

    For the record, it sold for $3911 after 45 bids. Some people don't care, prioritizing owning over ethics.
