    Re: Youtube and Ookpik Waltz ownership

    I should be very clear that the video is not blocked. It just has a copyright claim notice that seems to be from a South American based company. I was only curious if anyone else had seen as much....

    Re: Youtube and Ookpik Waltz ownership

    I have an Ookpik toy and a children's book that I bring out when I teach that song.

    Re: Youtube and Ookpik Waltz ownership

    So far I've never seen an ad inserted into any of the videos and nothing is blocked. I was just curious if anyone knew if the rights to the song had been sold to some south american publisher. I've...

    Youtube and Ookpik Waltz ownership

    I doubt anyone knows the answer to this but I've been working on Ookpik waltz with a student and I've uploaded several unlisted practice videos to share with them. They always get flagged with a...

    Re: Mandolin Neck Advice

    This is long and I'm sorry for that. The short version is that as a lifelong guitarist I've learned I prefer a wider neck and smaller radius. With that said, I've already typed all this out.

    I've...
  6. Re: Check out this mandolin...... Thoughts, comments, concerns

    Geico Mandolin. This reminds me of the crazy finishes Gibson was putting on Les Pauls a few years ago.
  7. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    If the previous Gibson made these guitars and they were truly turds, and you were the new owners, would you want a bunch of students playing them? Future customers remembering the robo-tuners that...

    Re: I need a mandolin stand for stage use.

    I have the upright bass version of the Ingles stand in my recording studio and it's pretty excellent. The price is right and I'll try it first.

    Re: I need a mandolin stand for stage use.

    I can relate to the worry of having it stepped on or knocked over. I don't think I'd want it hanging on a mic stand at a gig. Mic stands are often easily accessed by people in the venue as well as...

    I need a mandolin stand for stage use.

    I have a little A-frame stand that feels like it is more of a launch platform than something to hold my instrument. It needs to travel well. I typically gig with a tele, a baritone guitar and a...

    Re: Mandolin Recording Mic Setup

    I am a recording engineer as my profession. Good tone from an acoustic instrument is one of the most subjective things a person can undertake to capture. The position of the player's ear and...

    Re: Mandolin "B" stock or seconds etc.

    I taught at a music store that got offered some B stock merch. I bought an Epiphone MM50 f5 mandolin that was said to have cosmetic flaws. Overall it looked really excellent but the binding on the...

    Re: Mandolins for 6k and under?

    I just went on this exact journey with a similar budget. I bought a Sam Bush and had a new nut cut for it. It has a 1.24 inch nut (spec'd at 1 3/16 or 1.188" but measured at 1.24" with my calipers)...
  15. Re: The long, arduous journey of Silverangel #438 - with a happy

    Tracking info on a much awaited mandolin can be extremely anxiety producing. Recently I purchased an instrument coming from the southeastern US to the west coast of the US. On the first day the...

    I was recently at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and almost the entire collection is unchanged from when I was there in the 90s. At some point contemporary art isn't actually...
  17. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Gibson could probably do more with a campaign demonstrating how they were innovative and brought musicians so many designs that are ubiquitous today. Something like showing all the copies of their...

    Re: Gruhn's and/ Carter's?

    You only get one chance to make a first impression. A secret handshake shouldn't be a requirement to get someone to talk to you. My sister and I both remarked about how lame the atmosphere at Gruhn's...

    Re: Gruhn's and/ Carter's?

    I was at both stores in June and while Carter's was a bit more chaotic they had a much more interesting selection to me. They have a high-end room and then the rest of the floor. If you're serious...

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    My process for memorizing is deliberate and goes like this. Listen to a recording until I'm fairly familiar with it. Breakdown the song into the overall structure like Intro (8 bars), Verse (16...
  22. Re: What mandolin recordings are definitive to evolving its role?

    Not necessarily, maybe not at all. From my post I leaned on highly influential guitarists that reach a lot of other guitar players and shaped the vocabulary. Guitar has been my main instrument for...

    I'm very sorry that my somewhat incomplete statement might have sent you in a different direction. Narrow in scope that a mandolin cannot produce much in the way of bass frequencies. Narrow in scope...
  24. What mandolin recordings are definitive to evolving its role?

    The electric guitar has multiple points where the role it played in music moved ahead. Jimi Hendrix broke a lot of ground but I think Wind Cries Mary was a seminal performance in putting rhythm...

    Depending on how much you want it to have similar qualities to an acoustic mandolin you could try restringing it with a custom set of electric guitar strings. It's likely the difference in metal...
