    Re: Looking for Recording Equipment Suggestion

    I got Cubase with a different Zoom recorder. It's very nice for editing and mixing multitrack recordings, but I found getting it set up to use my external speakers difficult (I hope I don't have to...

    Re: Nick's Front Porch Mandolin

    It's very "big" sounding, but not too busy, and supports the melody well.

    Second Breakfast

    A fiddle tune with mandolin and guitar rather than fiddle, in the vaguely Celtic-somewhat oldtime genre.

    This started as a tune called After Breakfast (which is when I wrote it), which has a link...

    Re: Original Mandolin Tunes

    Here's one that, um, popped out after breakfast - first take for both parts and a working title. Probably could do with being faster tempo, and definitely needs more practice.

    The Lost Feather

    Mandolin improvisation backed by guitar, uke and artificial drums.

    The title is basically random, in honor of the molting season.

    Prodigal Son

    Back-porch style version of a blues/gospel tune with vocal, guitar, mandolin and harmonica. A.k.a. "That's No Way to Get Along".

    I started with the Stones but soon drifted far from the shore.

    Re: Taj Mahal and Ry Cooder "Hooray Hooray"

    Ry seems to use mandolin mostly as an occasional flavoring these days. His previous album started off very promisingly, but didn't feature mando very much:

    Re: Willie O' Winsbury

    I recently got a copy of The New Penguin Book of English Folk Songs by Steve Roud and Julia Bishop. They discuss both the text and melody of most of the songs they include. There's quite a range of...

    Willie O' Winsbury

    An old ballad, here done as an instrumental (too many verses for me to sing) with mandolins, guitars and bass.

    Re: What's in public domain these days?

    Instrumental improv

    Mandolin with guitar and uke. I beat the lawnmowers, but there’s a bit of garbage truck in there (and it could use more barn, of course). I couldn’t get Mr. House Wren in the studio for his solo,...

  21. Re: What kind of mandolin is Peter Knight playing here?

    That's a lot of watts for folkies, eh? No kit drums in this version of the band, either.
