    What a drag! But, at least you're able to laugh about it! :))

  3. Re: Beautiful John Paul Jones improv from the BBC

    Maybe JPJ is lurking around here on the Cafe under an assumed name? Anyway, I'd LOVE to see a Cafe interview with him. He does a lot of interviews, and I think this would be a feather in his cap, as...

    Clearly, John Paul Jones is the most gifted musician from Led Zeppelin.

    Re: Who writes this stuff?

    Yeah, first thing I did was check out his positive feedback and what he sells. People seem happy with his instruments. Seems to be an upstanding person.

    Re: The first song you learned

    I'm pretty sure that the first song I attempted to learn was "My Last Days on Earth" by Bill Monroe back in the mid `80's. It sounded like he was bending strings or something and I couldn't get it,...

    Re: Rawhide tablature for mandolin

    The most accurate tab I've ever seen to Bill Monroe's original recording of Rawhide is David Grisman's in the Winter of `77-`78 issue of Mandolin World News. Note-for-note and practical suggestions...
  8. Re: please recommend: bluegrass mando videos

    If you're interested in learning from the master himself, you can't beat this 2 DVD set on The Mandolin of Bill Monroe by Homespun. Lots of songs with closeups of his hands and the 2nd DVD is Sam...

    Re: Jesus Mandolin

    Though I'm a Christian and play Bluegrass Gospel, it doesn't do anything for me. As it's been already said, it could be somebody smoking a joint. Could just be wood grain too ... In fact, I probably...
  10. Re: Late Night Thoughts on Listening to Blue Grass Stomp

    I don't think people are treating it as if it's Bluegrass. It was a Bluegrass instrumental in it's original form, and some people don't care for the way Statman is doing it. That's all.

    Re: Post a picture of your band!!

    Well, this is when I was the bass player for Apple Core, a Beatles tribute band here in Milwaukee. This photo is us in 2006 at Summerfest, the world's largest music festival. I'm second from the left.
  12. Re: what are the best strings for a warm woody tone?

    A woody tone? I've found that the maple strings work well ... ;)
  13. Re: Late Night Thoughts on Listening to Blue Grass Stomp

    I don't think people are being critical. Most Bluegrassers like the original and are just saying that this doesn't do it for us. Different strokes for different folks.

    Too many notes ... but they're fine musicians. ;)

    Re: Is Hoarding Nice Instruments Justifiable?

    Asking this question here on the Cafe forum is akin to asking the drunks in a bar if it's justifiable to get loaded! :))
  16. Re: Do mandolin strings typically last longer than guitar strings

    No doubt about it! I used to change guitar strings like socks, but in all of these years I don't ever recall breaking a mandolin string ... seriously! :)

    Re: science behind a mandolin "opening up"

    Why would anyone care what a scientist has to say about a mandolin opening up? If I eat my wife's turkey today and then my daughter's, and afterward determine that my wife's is better, should I get...
  19. Re: Old Ebenezer Scrooge - fingerings, 4th part

    I play Old Ebenezer Scrooge. In fact, I usually do it as a warm up to get the fingers going. I play this pretty much note-for-note and I do it with the 7th fret there. But, there's lots of open A's...

    Bill Monroe Centennial Exhibit

    I wanted to start a separate thread for pictures I took of the Bill Monroe Centennial Exhibit at the International Bluegrass Music Museum in Owensboro. The fiddle is Uncle Pen's. :)

    Now I know what Bill was singing about, and the images of the Old Home are forever etched in my mind. I only regret that I didn't walk the trails of Jerusalem Ridge, but it was after 4pm and it's a 9...
