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

    Love it, Caleb! Such a heartfelt melody. I think the blues can be anything that gets us into and processing our challenges.

    Thank you for sharing!
  2. Re: What Irish/Scottish music do Irish/Scottish people listen to?

    Sadly this podcast, The Blarney Pilgrims, is on hiatus now and not sure if the two fellas who present it have any plans to bring it back, but there are a wealth of episodes to listen back to - music...
  3. Re: What Irish/Scottish music do Irish/Scottish people listen to?

    Caleb, I understand the attraction to "old world" music.
    I think that's kind of universal.

    Where I live, in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire fiddlers such as Jonny Hardie and Paul Anderson can trace their...
  4. Re: What Irish/Scottish music do Irish/Scottish people listen to?

    My impression is that traditional tunes and songs are often performed and sometimes sold on CD at those gigs. But it seems to be difficult to get a recording contract based on traditional material....

  6. Re: What Irish/Scottish music do Irish/Scottish people listen to?

    I still enjoy bands. I listen to Danu, Malinky, Old Blind Dogs, Bua, Tannahill Weavers. I also like Barry and Laura Kerr, Ye Vagabonds. It would help to know what you've got that you don't like to...

    What Dagger says, certainly as far as Scottish music goes, and I would add the very many excellent Scottish Country Dance Bands, generally accordion-led, with second accordion, piano, fiddle, bass...
  8. Re: What Irish/Scottish music do Irish/Scottish people listen to?

    Hi,

    In terms of listening I like fiddle music with Duncan Chisholm and Pete Clark being my favourites. They both lean towards slower paced tunes, which suit my ability to translate them to...
  9. Re: What Irish/Scottish music do Irish/Scottish people listen to?

    Depends what you feel like listening to.

    Gaelic singing - maybe Julie Fowlis or Kathleen McInnes.
    Fiddle bands - Blazin' Fiddles, Session A9, Fiddlers Bid.
    Fiddle- Duncan Chisholm is essential...

    Encouragement is magic

    I spent some time yesterday covering the first aid station at our local festival's pre-festival string camp. Sadly, I had to back out of attending the camp, but am volunteering on the medical side. I...

    That's a great looking goldtop Caleb! I also like what Epi did with the headstock on the new design.

    Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    These Ibanez's are absolutely the real deal. I have owned a couple and loved them. (I get what you mean about the archtop and its similarities to acoustic guitars, and yet their ability to go...

    Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    At the beginning of the pandemic I bought a cheap HH Squire ($160), figuring I might have a little fun. I have since repalced everything but the neck, and a new one is on order. Now all the big...

    Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    Caleb, I am with you, brother! I bought a new Epiphone Casino (hollow body with P90's) recently and I love it. Epiphone makes really good quality electric guitars. I have owned several and the Les...

    Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    Looper pedals are an absolute blast! Perfect for practicing lead breaks and really nice for playing out. Get one with a separate “off” button. It will save you some embarrassment when you are...

    Re: Thumb wear on the neck

    Don't be embarrassed -- it also depends on the finish. I know for sure the nitro finish on my F-9 neck was pretty thin and soft and it only took 3 or 4 years of serious playing to go through it. ...

    Re: stand or sit?

  24. Re: How has the mandolin changed your guitar playing?
