    Re: Beautiful A- Style on Reverb

    I think I found him, and the reason for the name "Johnboy" - his name is John Boyd. Sure does like that birdseye maple. :mandosmiley:

    I landed there after a side trip to Missoula and Greg Boyd's...

    Re: Old clipping

    Well, there's Roy Clark, who'd play with anybody (and hold his own quite well, too), front and center Janie Fricke (took a while to remember her name), and along with Willie, there's Waylon, and...

    Re: Vinyl!

    I have an enormous LP collection, but very few of them are bluegrass. I'll bet I have more Grisman than the rest of my bluegrass albums combined. Not that Grisman is bluegrass, mind you, but his...

    Re: Old clipping

    Yes, November 1963, the weekend after President Kennedy was assassinated. Google a day and date and it pops right up. Quite a lot of good music that weekend there in New York City. I don't know how...

    Re: Beware the mighty doubleneck

    Yes, I've seen that from time to time - not live, but on Austin City Limits and such. I assume this is to accommodate different tunings. That would be a heavy beast to transport. :disbelief: The...

    Re: Beware the mighty doubleneck

    The latest addition to Ripley's Believe It Or Not: The Mighty Doubleneck! No one bid on this marvel (hard to believe), so the seller relisted it (not hard to believe) with the same opening bid and...

    I appreciate your attempt to introduce specificity into a thread right from the start. I wish you well in this endeavor. The thread title is a bit more inclusive, which invites chatterboxes (like me)...

    Re: Obscure, solid Mandolin Players

    Yes, she is. :mandosmiley: I have to do a little more research and then I'll post about her. Adam Sherba played on just her first album, then all following mandolin work was by Mason Tuttle. He's...

    Re: Obscure, solid Mandolin Players

    Ha ha ha - FINALLY someone on this list I've seen, albeit in a non-mandolin capacity. (Not counting non-obscure players, and Jay Ungar and Peter Ostroushko are not obscure, to me, anyway.) The first...

    Re: Ry Cooder isolated mandolin Love in Vain

    I assume you mean "Let It Bleed," the album which contains "Gimme Shelter." I'm with you on those three, and can't settle on which one is my favorite - it varies from time to time. I also have a...

    Why not play them pleasantly? Or in some sense, orderly, coherently, beautifully? :confused:

    This leaves me cold on every level. But yes, sure, everybody can do whatever they want, and following...

  15. Re: A Gibson A3 in the white. In the white get it?

    Well, yes, to be sure. But also, I never said nor implied the band member bought it new; I simply said "purchased." And yes, from a dealer, or pawn shop, time-honored sources.

    It's easy to...

    Re: how to change Thread

    Thanks for that detailed explanation. I didn't know all that, and now I do, so I'll refrain from suggesting that in the future. Also thanks, Mike, for changing the title of the OP. I only suggested...
  18. Re: A Gibson A3 in the white. In the white get it?

    In looking up the SN at the Mandolin Archive (which puts it at 1919), I noticed some other examples from then that had white finishes. Excuse my ignorance, not having seen many photos of white...
  19. Re: Bluegrass Tunes with 6 2 5 1 progression

    Well, technically ... ;) But these tunes are not enharmonic, to be sure; they follow the VI7 - II7 - V7 - I pattern so common in swing music from the 1920s-1930s. I'm pretty sure that's what the OP...

    Re: Jean-Luc on Mandolin

    The tune was written by Gary Moore, but played by Jean-Luc. Who does a very nice job of it, also the recording, mise en scene, and filming.

    Here's a live version by Gary Moore, of whom I'd been...

    Go back to the original post. Go to "Advanced." You should be able to change the title there. But you must be quick. I think you only have three hours. After that, you'll have to ask an admin. Bon...

    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...
  25. Re: A Gibson A3 in the white. In the white 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...
