    Re: Woodstock

    Melanie says she still hasn't gotten paid and neither have some of the other artists.

    Re: Woodstock

    Wow. Well, there's plenty I don't remember. Let's just add that to the list.

    I sit corrected . . . .

    Re: Woodstock

    I've met lots of folks who were there. Half my high school friends were. Why lie?

    Re: Woodstock

    At the time of Woodstock? The Dead weren't real big here in the east yet, but Santana was wildly popular. You'd hear "Oye Como Va" and "Black Magic Woman" everywhere, and almost all my friends with...

    Re: Woodstock

    I do remember a uke. Country Joe's guitar buddy Barry "the Fish" Melton burned one on stage.

    Re: Woodstock

    No, just drums. (Just? That's like saying Hendrix just played guitar!)

    I went to high school in a New York suburb, so going was no sweat. Seemed like half my class was there.
  7. Re: A question about guitar bridge pins

    Yes.
  8. Re: A question about guitar bridge pins

    Yup to all the above. There's no buzzing. It's just shrill. To me, zithers are shrill, but maybe my experience with them isn't as comprehensive as it could be. I doubt I'm alone.

    And yeah, the...
  9. A question about guitar bridge pins

    Normally, I'd ask this at Harmony Central's guitar tech forum, because the luthier who moderates it gives good advice. But I haven't been able to log in there lately - probably thanks to some...

    Re: Fingerboard Extensions

    I'm no dog-earred artiste, but I have recordings where the click really distracts from the song, to the point where it's totally unusable. For example, listen to a little of track 1 on this page,...

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    Can't read a note, and I've never been great at memorizing. So I just work on learning a song's chords and improvise when I have to take a solo.

    Luckily for everyone, I'm not a pro.
  12. Re: If your spouse just green-lighted an electric mando ...

    I'd get an eight-string so it still has the mando flavor and a solid body so it doesn't feed back.

    Re: Am I asking too much?

    All great advice and suggestions. One more idea: a trade.

    For instance, you could go to Craigslist's instruments-for-sale section and see if anyone wants to trade something for it. That's how I...

    Re: I'm finally "getting it"!

    After fifty years, I haven't graduated - still just a guy who plays guitar - and, now, mando.

    I spent an hour or two yesterday ferreting some new-to-me mando blues patterns, and the thing really...

    My mando is orange. And I have a blue guitar.

    Re: Are Eastmans a keeper?

    If you want to keep it, it's a keeper! If you've played more expensive mandos and are still in love with your Eastman, that pretty much settles it.

    Re: Any Zoom Q8 users out there?

    Just got a Q8. Trying to figure it out now.

    You've had yours for a while. Any general tips for beginners?
  23. Re: Do people ever change their strings?

    I keep strings on until they sound bad or break.

    On mando and electric guitar, the strings sound good for a long time. (On electric guitar, the strings sound fine until they break, so I do change...

    Check out used Breedloves (but not the "crossovers") and used Big Muddys (a.k.a. Mid-Missouris).
