    Re: The cure for MAS

    I do this every now and then when I think I want a new guitar. I always end up liking my guitar better than anything else I play in the store.

    Re: Blues on the Mandolin - Let's Hear Ya!

    Mark, thank you! I like it a lot, and like any other idea it just seemed to come out of nowhere one day (Who can tell where an idea or a tune comes from?). I don't have any sheet music for it...

    Re: Blues on the Mandolin - Let's Hear Ya!

    Probably not exactly what you had in mind, but here is an original tune I came up with a while back that I call "End of Summer Blues." I think it's pretty catchy.
  4. Re: What Irish/Scottish music do Irish/Scottish people listen to?

    Just wanted to chime back in and say what a great week it was dabbling in these new (to me) podcasts. I listened to several episodes of Irish Music Stories (this is a VERY well-produced show!) and...

    Re: Do you name your instruments?

    I've never named a guitar but I did name my mandolin. I call it 'Sting' after Bilbo and Frodo's short sword from THE LORD OF THE RINGS. I had Bruce Weber make me a custom truss rod cover. I love it.
  6. Re: What Irish/Scottish music do Irish/Scottish people listen to?

    Thanks for taking the time to look these up and post them. I listened to them all and really enjoyed "I'm a Rover" the best. The simplicity of the arrangement and the catchy melody are great. I...

    Re: Obscure, solid Mandolin Players

    When our oldest boy (now 21) was little, he watched a lot of kids programming and I remember seeing Dan Zanes on sometimes between shows. The songs were always catchy and good songs on their own,...

    Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    Pedals! I'm trying hard not to venture down that rabbit hole, but I would really like one of those fancy reverb units that can do all the ambient and spacey tones. One of those looping devices...

    Re: Mandolin Orange is now Watchhouse

    It's interesting how things like band names, headstock shapes, colors on instruments, etc, etc, hit people differently. Years ago when I first saw the name 'Mandolin Orange,' I thought it was...
  11. Re: How to Keep a Headstock Tuner from Damaging Your Instrument

    I've always been firmly against leaving a tuner on the headstock because of the look, but the little D'Addarios are a genuine nightmare to remove so I've caved in at last. I leave mine turned around...

    This really is a wonderful little quip. I'll be borrowing it myself.
  14. Re: How has the mandolin changed your guitar playing?

    I've tried a few times and can never make any sense of DADGAD. The few things that I figured out that sounded musical turned out to be the same stuff I usually play, only in a different shape! Ha! ...
  15. Re: How has the mandolin changed your guitar playing?

    I've been out of the loop for a while on new guitar models but recently discovered that PRS makes a parlor. Here is Sierra giving one a workout. I want to find one of these and give it a try. They...
  16. Re: How has the mandolin changed your guitar playing?

    I seem to always go back to a Fender heavy on mandolin (using rounded shoulder) and a .88 on guitar.

    Wow, I'd never heard of this builder but his stuff looks great. Here's a video sample of one of his mandolins I found on his IG page. It sounds great.

    Re: What do you keep your picks and stuff in?

    I keep my picks in an old Altoids tin signed by Tommy Emmanuel. It was all I had in my pocket one night in OKC when I got to meet him after a concert, so he signed it.

    Re: Mandolin world vs fiddle world

    I agree with this. There are gems out there for lower prices. The trouble is finding them. Most shops only have a few mandolins on the wall, if any at all. And buying online lets you try one at a...

    Re: Mandolin world vs fiddle world

    This is a very cool thread. To me, the fiddle/violin is the most fascinating stringed instrument. We have one in the house, but I can’t do anything with it. Even though I know the fingerings...

    Re: Check out my new truss rod cover.

    That is a great idea for a mandola. “Flame of the West” (if memory serves correctly) is the meaning of Anduril.

    Check out my new truss rod cover.

    I decided that 2021 would be The Year of the Mandolin for me, and that I’d take my playing to another level (so far it’s working). I also decided my mandolin needed a name. I’m a huge Tolkien/Lord of...

    Re: Cullng the herd

    I love acoustic instruments and look almost daily at the Classifieds, CL, GC used, etc, but I find it distracting to own too many. For me it takes the focus off the music I'm playing and makes it...
