    Re: Andrew Marlin's Mando on "Harvest Moon"

    Thanks, y'all. I love the sound of that mandolin on Watchhouse's "Harvest Moon"; and, of course, I have loved everything that Mandolin Orange/Watchhouse has done. Emily's voice on this song is...
  3. Re: Cheap beater mandolins that play, for leaving in the car etc?

    I own 5 mandolins, the "top line" being a 2004 Gibson F-9, followed by a Weber Gallatin A-style. I also have a Bruhn double-point and an electric mando. With all of that said, the instrument I tend...

    Andrew Marlin's Mando on "Harvest Moon"

    Just curious if any of you have seen the Watchhouse video on YouTube of the band playing Neil Young's "Harvest Moon." If you have, do you happen to know what mandolin that Andrew is playing on the...
  5. Re: Does your mando need a setup? Learn to do it yourself!

    This book is totally AMAZING!! First of all, after reading his post I emailed Rob and within less than 30 minutes, he had sent me a copy. How's that for service? Second, understand that I am still...

    Re: Chord Finder App

    Thanks so much, Journeybear. I will definitely use the low-high convention in the future. Also, thanks for the tip on the chord. I like it, but I just wasn't quite sure what it was.

    Re: Chord Finder App

    Thanks, y'all. I'll check out Guitar Toolkit and Fretter. Appreciate the suggestions. BTW: Anyone know the chord name for the E-B-G-B (1st to 4th string) chord that I have been playing?

    Re: Some Real Music - Sierra Ferrell

    JD, I am with you on having her recorded Lomax-style. While she can do so many things with her music, her voice is so very evocative of the great traditional voices in Americana. I remember, too,...

    Dillion Electric Mandolins

    8 or 9 years ago I bought a Dillion electric mandolin. It's solid body, in the shape of a Rickenbacker guitar. While it was pretty cheap (under $400), and I don't play it a lot, it does seem to...

    Re: Frank Wakefield

    Oh, yeah!! She did a great job on Triste (I believe that's the song she's doing). Bossa nova just has a compelling, sashay-like beat to it. Kind of makes me want to just lightly bop down the...

    Re: Do You Baby Your Mandolin?

    I definitely baby my Gibson F9; it is only out of the case when I am playing it. When I am finished, it goes back in the case. On the other hand, my Epiphone MM-30 stays out and on the stand...

    RIP, Nanci. I always tear up at the end when I hear her sing "Tecumseh Valley". Such a sweetly wonderful artist and person. So very sad.
