    Re: Clown Barf Construction

    I believe there is an added ingredient. They are multi-colored celluloid that is bound with a substance(?) called Mojotone.

    It was a byproduct of the Staten Island Project (down the hall from...

    Re: What is a good beginner song to learn-

    I've always thought 'Amazing Grace' was a good song to start on. Familiar to many listeners. Slow tempo. Three chords - G,C, & D. The melody notes fall nicely on the D and A strings.

    Re: Something different

    An obvious beauty! If its playable, I think it deserves a good owner and regular stage time. I bet the back story is a whopper!
  5. Re: Octave mandolin advantages for an established guitar player?

    What a wonderful, intimate performance! Thank you for sharing.

    Talk about two musicians in harmony with each other! A great example of how good players "tune" themselves to the needs of the...
  6. Re: Octave mandolin advantages for an established guitar player?

    I figure if there's board with frets on it, I'd be wasting the instrument's potential to not try to use all of it in one fashion or another. Try those chord shapes across and up the board, there's a...
  7. Re: Octave mandolin advantages for an established guitar player?

    You can slap on a capo at the fifth fret to unleash the hidden mandola that comes free with the purchase of every octave. This also gives you a chance to play around and get comfortable with the...
  8. Re: Octave mandolin advantages for an established guitar player?

    Straight away strumming with guitar and octave mandolin is a dead end for me. Find other things to do with the instrument. Here's an example of using the low strings as a percussive drone. In a...

    Re: Surprising mando songs?

    I've been messing around with Donovan's "Season of the Witch" and the horn fills on "Mustang Sally."

    The Stooges "I Wanna Be Your Dog" is kinda fun on mando too!

    Re: Trashy Late Night Mandolin Music!

    I figured if it was in the newspaper on Aug 5th, the trashy mandolin music must have actually occurred prior to the 5th. We could all meet at the Mandolin Cafe World Headquarters in Lawrence!

    Trashy Late Night Mandolin Music!

    On August 5, 1890, a Lawrence, Kansas newspaper reported late night trashy mandolin music being played in the downtown park.

    Re: 4 string or 8 string that's the question....

    I consider the 8 string to be the "true mandolin." The double courses are a necessary part of what defines the family of instruments.

    Four stringers have their place in specialty applications...

    Re: Strumming like guitar?

    Good grief. Why would the player of any stringed instrument choose to not use one of the fundamental techniques of playing a stringed instrument?

    Re: Eastman 515V vs Collings MT

    I read this thread before the blind test, so I went in knowing which was which. To my ears, you have two very nice sounding mandolins! Your Eastman proves (once again) that they are not just...
