  1. 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...
  2. 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:

    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...

    Re: H 1 mandola on SGW

    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...

    Re: Why play Mandolin?

    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:

    Re: Why play Mandolin?

    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. ;)

    I was a little surprised she included this Eddie Money song among her...

    Ronnie Spector, RIP - And MC

    As many of you may know, on Wednesday, January 12th, we lost another great. Ronnie Spector died. :( I wasn't going to post anything here, though I definitely would have followed suit if someone else...

    Maybe consider a resonator mandolin first? :confused:
  16. 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.

    BTW, I'm super impressed with the frequency and perspicacity of the eagle eyes' activity...
  17. Re: I have MAS and check the classified hourly…

    Unrepentant, unreformed, unremitting - all that and more! :)) I didn't know much about all that when I started, so I learned, I trained myself, and that training stuck. I can't help myself. I often...

    Mm-hmm ... I'm not completely buying into the logic there. Surely there were options between those two choices. And though the wingsuit looks like a big thrill, it also looks really scary. At least...
  20. Re: check out the mandolin player in this video

    Yes, the first annual Gershwin Prize for Popular Song went to Paul Simon, in 2007.

    There's an entry for the video release at imdb, which lists a bunch of musicians, but no mandolin credit. Someone...

    Clearly. You might want to reconsider that. :disbelief:

    Or maybe that helps explain this behavior. :confused:

    Thanks. I just have an unreformed former editor's eye for detail, when it comes to the written word.

    That's all good and well, I suppose. I was alarmed because you mentioned you have two banjos, double the typically acceptable level often begrudgingly expressed hereabouts. If you think you have your...
