    Re: Obscure, solid Mandolin Players

    When I moved to Fairbanks, Alaska, in the summer of 1978, I came across the best Alaskan bluegrass band at the time "Tanana Grass". They were lead by brothers George Page (banjo) and Joe Page on...

    Re: Mic for onboard use

    I saw a duo yesterday that used a Bose L1 and I was totally impressed with the sound. And the fact that they didn't need monitors also sold me on the $1,200 price tag.

    That said, I agree wtih...

    Re: 10 Questions For John McGann

    McGann was essentially teaching the Django Reinhardt picking technique. Watch some videos of guitarists using that style and it will be clear. The Cafe also has some archived stuff from McGann.

    Re: post a video of yourself

    I have wanted to post something for quite a while now, but never got around to recording a tune or session properly.

    This was done in March of this year after an 8-month break for the trio due to...

    Jo, I think that it is awesome that you built your own instrument and then play it so well. Keep up the good work!

    With all due respect, I think that whoever posted the chords to "Because He Lives" simply forgot to put a space between two chords: Gm C7 is the ii-V7 chord progression in the key of F....

    Re: Ry Cooder isolated mandolin Love in Vain

    It wasn't just lifting his style, right? Didn't they invite him to an audition for the band, and then secretly tape him while he was playing around waiting for Keith Richards to show up? Later, they...

    Re: Chord Questions

    Yeah, J-Bear, you bring up a good point. I rarely see an X/Y chord in a song unless it is for a moving bass line. The best example that I can think of right away is John Hartford's "Work in Tall...

    Re: new videos of Isaac Eicher

    If you've got pull (influence) with Isaac, get him to post a video playing "Night in Paris". It is a tune that his father wrote and I love it. My trio covers the tune now and then.

    The one time I was able to see Bush in concert (with the final version of New Grass Revival), I brought my binoculars to watch his hands. That right hand was a blur.

    Re: Chord Questions

    Yeah, if you are playing with others, have the guitarists play the bass note, or a bass player, and you play the normal D or G chord.

    Re: Chord Questions

    Usually that means D chord with a C bass, and G chord with a B bass.

    If I saw that in a song, I would try playing the D like this: 545x, which ends up being a D7 chord. That notation means: 5th...

  18. Re: What price level and up gets you a "lifelong keeper" mandolin

    I bought my keeper in 1978 for $675 (Givens A model). I suppose it would go for around $5,000 today so that would be my price point if I were trying to replace it.
