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

    Right? What in the world? :disbelief:

    If you ask me, that is overkill. What's the point of having so many picks? :confused: Pricey ones, at that. I know, no one asked me ... :whistling:

    Re: Pandemic Reading

    Well, sir, I have news for you. My search skills aren't that great either, though they serve me fairly well, much of the time. They did this time.

    It turns out there is indeed a thread about it....

    Re: Random mandolin sightings

    This is very random, and is not a sighting per se but a hearing, and in fact a sort of mis-hearing ... But it provided a chuckle, and I wanted to share it, but not start a thread just on account of...

    Re: Pandemic Reading

    Right, no video - as expected. BUT some youtube "videos" - live recordings - which surprised me immensely. :disbelief: Even a few from the Royal Festival Hall 9/24/1969, their first time playing...

    Re: Worm under, Worm over? A visual guide.

    The worm gears are in the opposite direction of the 1931 in Post #11.

    Re: Pandemic Reading

    Quite so, on both counts. I suggest people enjoy this, if it's the sort of thing they do, quickly, before it disappears. Politics, vulgarity - both interdicted here.

    Re: Grandfathers Gibson A3 Mandolin

    George Youngblood, in Guilford. His waiting list was nearly a year long when I was up there last June. Circumstances being what they've been, he might have got caught up some. Hopefully he'll have...

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

    Eh? That's for the wallet. :confused:

    When I wore jeans, I'd use the watch pocket. That's the mini-pocket on one corner of the right front pocket, meant for a pocket watch. Now that watches are...

    Re: Grandfathers Gibson A3 Mandolin

    Congratulations and welcome to the Café! :mandosmiley:

    I'll agree with those recommending a local luthier. As much as there may be a good one as recommended in MD - and I was going to suggest my...

    I sympathize with you, sir, for the suffering inflicted upon you over the years by spending so much time in close proximity to the death-dealing devil's device, and the derision from others. I...

    Re: One versus two-piece backs

    Maybe I'm missing something, but as I've been thinking about this lately, more than I ever had before, I've started wondering why two-piece backs are so much more common than one-piece backs. Is it...
  13. Re: An (incomplete) list of recorded black mandolinists

    I just happened to learn that one of the musicians mentioned in the OP, Richard Brown, has another distinction worth mentioning: he is a board member of the IBMA.

    PS: Thanks for starting this...

    Re: Sam knows all!!!

    Have to concur. Sounds better than a budget mandolin, but not worth the asking price - $3000. Sam's a master, but if that's as good as he can make it sound ... Not that they're available anyway, so...

  18. Re: Songs/tunes that drive our partners (and families) crazy!

    Living alone has its advantages. ;) I can play music whenever I like, as loud as I like, as long as I like. It's part of the deal, making the high rent worth it in order to enjoy personal freedom....
