    Re: Fender medium-gauge guitar pick

    Huh??? :disbelief: What the ... ? :confused: I think you're way off base there, buddy.

    There have been several old threads resurrected recently, and I commend this activity. Don't see any reason...

    Re: Fender medium-gauge guitar pick

    Beats starting up yet another thread, beginning from scratch, when there are existing ones with pertinent insights, ruminations, and observations. Gladdens me to see someone did a little research...

    Re: Fender medium-gauge guitar pick

    I dunno. I think people overthink this stuff. I think it's more important to play well than use any particular piece of equipment - more or less. I used to use a Fender extra heavy pick back in the...

    Re: Yank and Sleepy

    Yeah, I think that was meant to be street theater or political protest or performance art or some such. There was a lot of that back then. Why not in Memphis, too? But I don't think that was...

    Re: Griffith Loar

    Thanks for that. Confirms what the wiki says and much more. Fascinating story. :mandosmiley:

    And then there's all that about building a replica. Holy wow! :disbelief: That is some deep, in-depth...

    Re: Griffith Loar

    Am I correct in my understanding this is the only A model signed by Loar? That is what the wiki says, which I don't doubt, but I'm still wondering. The wiki also says this was a special order. Isn't...

    Re: Patrick Sky RIP

    A bit of an advance notice ... Some of you may have heard there was a Celebration of Life being planned to honor Patrick, tentatively scheduled for Oct. 2nd, which would have been his 81st birthday....

    Dang! Ya got me! My bad. :redface: And that's all right. Serves me right to suffer ... :(

    John D. Loudermilk starts about the 31:00 point.
  10. Re: Is this a chord? first fret, D AND A, then G&E on 3rd fret?

    So I was just noodling around a bit - definitely, decidedly not practicing ;) - and I thought I'd play this 3001 chord, instead of just thinking about it. It's nice enough, I suppose, sort of moody....

    Re: Mandolin Coffee Company

    I had no idea. How would I? Would have had no notion of looking for such a thing. Oh well!

    There's a Mandolin Wine company, been around since at least 2004 (that's the oldest vintage mentioned in...

    Re: Clown Barf Construction

    I suppose clown barf picks could be made with some dedication to consistency in quality, independent of visual conformity. One wonders why one would want to ... :confused: My understanding has always...

    Re: Name that wood

    Well ... Actually, theoretically, it could be. Inasmuch as white ash (Fraxinus americana) is the likely candidate (if I'm reading correctly the assertions of those far better versed in this area than...

    Re: Clown Barf Construction

    True dat. My understanding is clown barf picks are made from melted down floor sweepings. Thus they are not the ne plus ultra anything, except leftovers. Their composition is thoroughly random, as...

    Oh, I forgot to mention the most remarkable (to my mind) appearance in the film - John D. Loudermilk playing the great song he wrote, "Tobacco Road," an emblematic 60s song. I've known him as a...

    All this palaver and parsing of particulars concerning substitute chord names and fingerings brings to mind my personal journey of discovery on the subject. Bear with me; I'll be briefer than usual....
  19. Re: The elusive Stelling 2-lump mandolin. Behold the glory!!

    Yeah, I'm pretty much all about the A's myself, oval holes, though. Did just find an F-4 after a long, long search - still got that oval hole sound I like - and it's been taking a while to grow on...
  20. Re: The elusive Stelling 2-lump mandolin. Behold the glory!!

    OK, think I got it. This is indeed an ancient video, with no captions to help locate stuff.

    Don Reno's section starts around 5:00, with the strangest rendition of "Duelling Banjos" I ever did hear...
  21. Re: The elusive Stelling 2-lump mandolin. Behold the glory!!

    Ya know, I'm curious, but only mildly curious. Do you think you could give a time point for where in this cotton-pickin' hour-long video that is? Thanks.

    Ummm ... no. Don't think so. I had to sift through the preceding alphabet soup to find your reference, and I see it concerns Don's suggestion regarding playing the title chord without the root tone....
  25. Re: Suggestions for Crooked and/or Polytonal Tunes?

    Cajun music is full of crooked tunes. Most of the time that means there'll be an added beat or a dropped beat - depends on the tune. Might not be your thing, but it's a rich tradition worth...
