    Re: Al Capone! Mandola player

    OMG! Jack White bought "Humoresque?" :disbelief: And recorded it? :disbelief:



    Apparently Capone did NOT write the lyrics, but remembered them while in prison. From the video's notes:

    Re: Al Capone! Mandola player

  4. Re: And now for something completely different

    Well ... OK, you asked.

    Generally, I gravitate toward designs in which form follows function. This sort of goes in a different direction - ie, more style than substance. Never mind the color...
  5. Re: Bernie in Newfoundland (no mando content)

    Well ... he's a politician, so ... It's just commonly understood it's best to steer clear of veering near. Erring on the side of caution, so to speak.

    Re: Learning to read Rhythm

    I'd go along with what most people are saying - feeling rhythm is the key. I'm not sure exactly how you would be reading rhythm - from sheet music? From watching other players in a jam or session?

    Re: Random mandolin sightings

    Wow! Good catch. You had to be watching closely to catch that. ;) Being upstaged by a spoons player, to boot. :disbelief:

  19. Re: Definition of a good mandolin player’s spouse

    I believe the modifier "good" is modifying the final noun "spouse." That is more or less the convention. In this instance, I deduce this from the content of the OP, in which the intervening modifiers...
  20. Re: Definition of a good mandolin player’s spouse

    Reading through these testimonials and homages, I'm very impressed with and gladdened by the fortune many of you have had in this area. I'm also a bit perturbed with the difficulties some have...

    Re: 1974 Gibson F5 - what's top of the market?

    My mid-to-late-70s F-12* was not a great instrument. I had her for 30 years and put in a lot of playing and traveling with her, but she never did get to a point where she was all I'd hoped she would...
