    Re: Is my MAS dead?

    Like many of us - off the top of my head I can think of at least several long-gone instruments that fall into the 'Wish I had never sold' category, but in the end I can still be very content with the...

    Re: Is my MAS dead?

    The same thing seemed to have the opposite effect on my son. He took a part-time job at one of the chain music stores, just for the substantial employee discount - but instead of quelling the...

    Re: I know that tune... um... how's it go again?

    A number of years ago I finished a local television gig and afterwards went to a hometown bar with the rest of the band. Unbeknownst to us, it was 'open mic' night. At one point, they yelled out...

    Re: Is my MAS dead?

    I hate to break the news to you, but (to some extent) The Monkees already beat you to the punch, with a song called 'Love Is Only Sleeping'.

    Other than that - I can relate to a lack of MAS, simply...
  7. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    In my early days of playing in bands I was always the bass player - but now that I am a songwriter and solo artist who does one-man shows, it is the guitar that I can be found playing most often . ....

    Upon further reflection on this topic (you can tell that I have waaaay too much free time on my hands if this is the best thing that I can reflect on) - I occasionally refer to guitars in certain...

    But wait - in the Monty Python skit, ALL of the Australians were named Bruce. Is it possible that they were being facetious?

    Re: Naming your Mandolin

    I have owned at least a couple of hundred instruments over the years, but have only named one.

    I have an inexpensive oval hole mandolin that I bought because it vaguely reminded me of Jethro Burns...

    Re: Fingerstyle mandolin

    A couple of years ago I bought an inexpensive Rogue mandolin, took off 4 of the strings and took a crack at finger-picking. I didn't take it too far, but it was quite fun and interesting,...
  15. Re: Star-shaped electric mandolin with signature

    Somehow I have doubts that it 'may have been made by Jeff Beck' - though it was a nice attempt at creative salesmanship.

    Interesting piece, nonetheless . . . .

    Re: Bass playing helping Mando playing

    For me the experience was reversed - I played bass in bands for about 10 years before I picked up a mandolin, and then found that my bass playing took on whole new dimensions. Based on personal...

    Re: Elixir Mediums vs. D'Addario Mediums?

    For my 2-cents - the decision is based on whether or not you like the sound of 'new strings'. I have some instruments that sound better when the strings are new, and others that sound better after...
