    Nice one... And welcome. Good to see more Aussies getting onto the cafe.
    Hereby & forthwith, any instrument with an odd number of strings shall be considered broken. With regard to mix levels, usually the best approach is treating the mandolin the same as a cowbell.

    This goes way beyond "fun" in my opinion. Very creative and well thought out all the way through. Well presented visually as well.

    Thanks for sharing that. And thanks for not doing the whole song. An idea for you - have you heard of sulfur hexafluoride (SF6)? It's a gas about six times denser than air (much as helium is about six times less dense than air), and thus lowers your voice correspondingly. You could work that into the act, maybe even start a second band called The Bluegrass Buffaloes (Hippos, Rhinos, elephants, whatever) the way Hot Rize and Red Knuckles And The Trailblazers did. Now, I know your buddy wasn't using helium, he just has a freakishly high voice (OK, falsetto), but still, that could be fun to fool around with.
    But that's just my opinion. I could be wrong. - Dennis Miller
