  11. Re: Music Therapy - Sharing Music In An Assisted Living Facility

    I played with a bluegrass group at another nursing home... they insisted on doing Will the Circle Be Unbroken, complete with the coffin, grave, all that stuff. That's why I stick to lighter fare when...
  12. Re: Music Therapy - Sharing Music In An Assisted Living Facility

    I play once a month in a memory unit. The response varies. There's one old gal who knows the words to every song and sings along loudly. Others doze off. Sometimes they laugh at the corny jokes,...

    Re: 3 unrelated mando questions

    I'm another fan of the Unitunes. Sweetwater sometimes runs specials on them, I think I got one for about $15 at one point. I use them on my mando, guitar, and bass with good results.

    I used Tascams for many years until they finally got on my last nerve (although the cassette versions were more user-friendly than the digital ones).

  16. Re: New solo mandolin piece recorded with a Pava

    I disagree. :) Very enjoyable, interesting changes, and enough of a melody line for me. Not everything has to be Giant Steps.

    At the very least, I would look into renter's insurance. When I used to rent I had Liberty Mutual. Although I can't stand their stupid ads, they did right by me when I was broken into and my Guild...

    Re: Is a new mandolin the answer?

    Re: A first mandolin

    I second Allen's advice. I started on a Rover RM-50 and it was a nifty little mando for the money. Here's one cheap, perhaps not set-up, but at that price you could afford to pay for one.

    Re: You don't see a tailpiece like this everyday!

    Might not be a bad deal if it's been set up, as he claims, and is playable. I kinda like the doodad on the peghead.
