    Re: Like this site but for guitar....

    The time I'm referring to was around 2001-2003, so it's been a long time. I admit that some of the comments were fun to read, but it didn't make for a welcoming environment.

    Re: Like this site but for guitar....

    I remember HC; I used to read a lot there but never joined. Maybe I dropped in during its dud phase, but I remember it being a very rough crowd. Many times I saw people get ridiculed and called...

    Re: Like this site but for guitar....

    It would be cool if there was a guitar section here since so many here play guitar, but then it wouldn’t be the Mandolin Cafe anymore. :cool:

    I often use the AGF’s search feature when I want to...

    Re: Eastman MDA315 mandola! Yes!

    A few months ago I got very interested in the mandola. I have even spoke with a builder about a possible custom order, though I’ve still never seen a mandola in person or (obviously) played one. As...

    Collective Soul was apparently my favorite artist in 2019.
  6. Re: I put new strings on and positioned the bridge myself

    In all fairness, there really are some instruments that just do not work well with old strings. Example: my Larrivee guitar will not stay in tune with old strings, but my old Takamine does not care...
  7. Re: I put new strings on and positioned the bridge myself

    Many loathe changing strings, but I actually enjoy it. It not only feels good to be competent enough to do things for myself, but it’s part of the pride of instrument ownership to me. Kind of like...
  8. Re: Need some help from a French-speaking mandolin player...

    Well, for someone whose third language is English, your use of it here (along with good punctuation) is flat out great. I wish I could do the same in French. I've messed with it off and on for a...
  9. Re: Need some help from a French-speaking mandolin player...

    Wow, must be my American ears because I can’t hear it.
  10. Re: Need some help from a French-speaking mandolin player...

    Thanks, all, for the help. Before posting my request I looked up the lyrics online, and it seems like with a lot of old songs, there are several variations. So thanks for saving me lots of time and...
  11. Re: Need some help from a French-speaking mandolin player...

    Thanks. I’ll work from this and see how it goes. Much appreciated.

    Where do all the Mandolin Cafe decals end up?

    Here’s mine by my computer.
  13. Need some help from a French-speaking mandolin player...

    My family dabbles in French and our French teacher is throwing a musical Christmas party. She has asked my wife and I to perform this song in French:

    Re: Fretboard Journal still active?

    I don’t get the magazine, though I’ve seen them over the years and they are super nice. (I used to love magazines but somewhere along the way stopped getting them—probably another casualty of the...
  15. Re: Sirius Radio Replaced Bluegrass station 62 with 24/7 Dolly Pa

    We had Sirius for a while in my wife’s van when it was new. I enjoyed it. There was a station called “Coffeehouse” that I liked, and “Spa.” I also enjoyed the French station since I dabble en...

    Re: Thank You, Collings

    The overall tone of my MT is fantastic, but yes, there isn’t a ton of bass (which is one of the reasons I like it — i.e. balance). But the D course is really the sweet spot on my particular...

    Re: Thank You, Collings

    I’ll go ahead and praise Collings (again) too. The tuners on my MT were JUNK. The replacements from StewMac were JUNK. Collings ate the cost and sent me some Gotohs. Excellent service.

    Re: Ellis Torch and Wire in todays classified.

    Wow, a true work of art. I’m constantly amazed that people can make such things. That mandolin costs more than the car I drive.

    Re: What are you playing for the holidays?

    Whatever happened to the OP, Pasha Alden? I always thought that was the coolest name I ever heard.

    Music is a big part of our Christmas. My wife and sis-in-law and I will go play carols in...

  22. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    Like a lot of people, listening to Nickel Creek was one of the first times I ever remember hearing a mandolin (though it was the music of Kate Rusby a few years later that grabbed me and REALLY made...
  23. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    That's brilliant stuff there and I actually laughed out loud when I read it.

    I sometimes watch Marty's show on RFD TV. The level of musicianship with him and his band is just flat out amazing. ...
  24. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    That is great! But Scotter’s Law actually has a much better ring to it. Rolls off the tongue better and sounds more mysterious.
  25. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    Big fan here. I DVR this on RFDTV and enjoy it a lot. A great way ton discover new artists. And it’s always fun to try to figure out what type of mandolin someone is playing. I tend to end up...
