  1. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    :)) Yeah... and back when those things were current and unavoidable in the major publications, it seemed like time stopped and dragged on forever. :sleepy: I was glad to see those bright colors go...
  2. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Late '90s, actually. :) "Bondi Blue" iMac (middle pic) came out in 1998, fruit colors (top pic) were announced in early 1999 (more info here). But that minor detail aside, I see your point! :) :))...

    Disregard my link above, wrong thread. Updated to my tentative experimental (read: probably contains errors) :)) chord-exploration video also at Song-A-Week 500 - Westphalia Waltz.
  5. Re: “Never grow old” bluegrass instrumental

    Super nice!! :mandosmiley: And that song is one of my all-time favorites too, thus I often have unrealistically high expectations for any new versions of it, but your band does a great job with it....

    Re: I Don't Do Tab

    I basically had in mind for commonly-seen minors to be included in the "etc" portion of my "I-IV-V etc" phrase, :grin: but yeah I agree with you that sometimes the most-obvious first choice isn't...

    Re: I Don't Do Tab

    As to writing down the notes that form chords - I was not referring to the I-IV-V etc chords, which (at this point, for me anyway) are fairly obvious just by listening - no need to diagram those out...

    Good points. :) The other fun & potentially useful thing with being able to write stuff down (and have other people read it), is that it's an easier way work out new multi-part harmonies and such......

    Lol yeah I got a friend like that too, he has Master's Degree in music and music education, of all things. Guess they didn't teach ear training eons ago when he was getting his degrees.

    Mandolin tab? OP wants mandolin tab. I can't find any - just testing this out, I found a few guitar tab pages, and plenty of lyrics/chordname pages, but no mandolin tab, despite trying various...

    Re: Mandolin Influences

    My dad played, there was always a mandolin in the house.

    He did tremolo stuff playing old Texas/German waltzes and dance tunes, and simplified versions of Chopin etc waltzes that he'd learned by...
  14. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    U.S. didn't dive into WWII whole-hog until late in 1941. Then things ramped up for the war effort.

    That is relevant since Gibson is a U.S. company and, in 1939 AFAIK there was *not* yet any...

    Oh. Darn! I didn't know that. I guess I should have done a little research before typing out my little parody... I was just kinda thinking out loud... oops. :redface: Thanks Mike for the heads-up! :)
  17. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Maybe Gibson should trademark the word "The", while they're at it.

    I mean, look, there's all these other non-authentic builders putting the word "The" on the headstocks. They have no right to...

    Seems that there are two versions of this song:

    1. A modern copyrighted version composed by Matt Merker, as in the video Jim posted above. Looking at the sheet music right now, I see that the...

    It's not just MandolinCafe. FWIW, 30 seconds on Google brought up these:
