    Re: Astroturf Noise

    I guess this is for people for whom pleasant, concordant, harmonic music just doesn't work. One advantage of this is they don't have to waste any time tuning up between ... songs - are they still...
  2. Re: A Gibson A3 in the white. In the white ó get it?

    Yeah, right? :)) I've never seen that before. (OK, I don't get around much, not as much as some of all y'all.) Funny, I didn't even notice that at first. I was too struck by the plain wood. Never...
  3. Re: A Gibson A3 in the white. In the white ó get it?

    So, to sum it up in a word - Oops! :confused: :disbelief: :crying:

    Reminds me ... Once upon a time, a couple of guys in my band and I went on a bit of a road trip up the Keys to Islamorada, more...

    Re: Beware the mighty doubleneck

    Thanks for finding that/those. :mandosmiley: :mandosmiley: He did exactly what I suggested - paint the whole thing black, making it all of a piece which integrates both parts into the new whole. I...

    Re: Shure sm57

    That ain't what did it. I really wish I knew. Might have been just the accumulated wear and tear from years of use and abuse. It was a proud moment, though, when I noticed it. Didn't think it was...

    I broke the barrel on one. :disbelief: I don't remember how. Wish I did; that would be a story. ;) A little duct tape, off I went. :whistling:
  8. Re: Mandolin Identification Gibson A Oval Hole

    I don't know how the site operates on a phone, but if it's similar to a laptop, there should be a row of icons above the message pane. Toward the right is the Insert Image icon. Click on that, browse...
  9. Re: Epiphone Electric Guitar Mandolin Combo

    They stand out from the crowd? They're not ho-hum la-de-dah another exquisite example of lovely luthiery? :confused: They are eye-catching. ;)

    And this isn't a train wreck, I say! Just a homespun...

    Hardy har har! :)) I was thinking of including myself as well, when I first saw this thread, but relented, thinking about my playing - which is far from solid - not the other sense you deduced. Well...

    Re: Beware the mighty doubleneck

    Aw, you guys are being too rough on this baby's looks. Looks ain't everything; functionality is more important. I think the problem is the owner didn't go far enough with this. Leaving both parts in...
  14. Re: NEW! - Weekly Folk Music Lessons / Sessions in Key West

    Oh no! OMG no! Other members from Key West?!? :disbelief: And what's worse, who play Irish music (and sea chanties)?!?!? :disbelief: And even worse, who know me?!?!?!?!? :disbelief: :disbelief:...

    Re: Beware the mighty doubleneck

    Nahhh ... Page would laugh at this. He's got a factory-built solid-body Gibson. :cool:

    Not that this might not be a decent instrument. At least it's a reasonable assumption that both parts of this...

    It sounds like he wants it for playing live, "to be on par with a banjo and dobro in our band" as he put it. When recording, levels will be adjusted...

    Re: Thile can't chop chords

    I can corroborate that from personal experience. When I was playing in a jug band, part of my functionality was to synch up with the guitarist, both rhythmically and chordally. The guitar filled the...

    Re: Odd Issue With Uploading Images

    I must reboot a half-dozen times or more a day, due to an equipment issue, so that's not it. I'm thinking it's related to the image size. It's odd how consistently the problem crops up, though, as...

    Re: Odd Issue With Uploading Images

    It could be size-related. It just worked fine for a small (<100k) jpg, but a larger one of 4megs, typical these days, took 10-15 seconds to load, as you said. It still seems odd, though, as the delay...
  25. Re: Mando wall hanger at Paulís Coffee and Tea in CO

    Maybe yes, maybe no. I'm not so sure many people know what a mandoline is, either. Most home food prep is done on a cutting board with a knife. In America, anyway. I don't think the general public...
