    Re: Obscure, solid Mandolin Players

    I discovered Mason Tuttle by quite a different route. I recently discovered Amy Martin, an immensely talented singer-songwriter - emphasis on "singer," with a really beautiful voice, as clear and...

    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: ebay h1 mandola

    But ain't it wonderful. just a rare sweet thing, when someone not only listens to you, but hears you, and does what you say they should? If I had a nickel for every time that's happened ... well,...

    Re: Early 1900s Gibson Catalogue

    On a somewhat related note, I hope someone who frequents threads of this nature can help answer a question. I see in these pages that all mandolin models have tops and backs made of maple, the...

    Youse guys are cracking me up! :)) :)) :))

    Though there is the Banjo Hangout, but I believe that's something different ... :confused:

    FWIW, a quick search turns up no Accordion Cafťs, but there...

    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...
  8. 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...

    Odd Issue With Uploading Images

    This started about a week ago. When I click on the "Insert Image" icon and the pop-up window appears and I follow the instructions as per usual - nothing happens. Well, the cursor blinks, but no...

    Re: ebay h1 mandola

    I sure don't understand why he says it's an H-2 when the label clearly says H-1. Then again, he may have a bit of a problem seeing, as he also says it has a red sunburst finish. Also, the list at...
  11. Re: Mando wall hanger at Paulís Coffee and Tea in CO

    There is - or rather, was - a Mandolin Coffee company in Kenosha WI. Struggled to hang on but closed in May. Got noticed hereabouts a few weeks ago. Don't see any wall hangers there, either. But they...

    Re: R.I.P. Paddy Maloney

    And now for something completely different ... A jam session of sorts with The Chieftains, the Tuva throat singers from Mongolia, and Johnny Guitar Watson at Frank Zappa's house in 1993. :disbelief:...

    Re: R.I.P. Paddy Maloney

    My friend Patrick Sky, who passed back in May, was great friends with Paddy, I believe going back to his Greenwich Village days in the 60s. I'm sure this contributed to his decision later to delve...
  15. Re: Mando wall hanger at Paulís Coffee and Tea in CO

    Espresso is still espresso, even after the customer puts whatever he or she wishes in it. AFAIK, "espresso" actually refers to the method of preparation, not the drink itself, though in common usage...

    Re: seeking info for B&J Victoria A-type

    OP means "original ost" or "original poster," depending on context.

    As to the major difference, perhaps we'll all find out once this teachable moment passes.

    I gotcha. Makes perfect sense. Thanks for explaining. And sorry for any disruption. Sounds like you've got a good 'un. Looks like it, for sure. Enjoy! :mandosmiley:

    Re: Blonde F-4

    I was thinking something similar: "I've got an F-4 and an A-4. That's enough. Isn't it? Isn't it?"

    It is. Or should be. Owning is supposed to keep one from desiring. But MAS is danged persistent!...

    Well, not much point in making too much of this. Metals do a much better job of vibrating when struck than wood. A metal-bodied instrument with wooden strings isn't going to sound like much. ;) But...

    Forgot about this. Didn't generate much interest. Wonder why. It's pretty cool, if odd. Perhaps some images will help.
