    Re: Finders Keepers

    It's official! Our CD EP is now available! :mandosmiley: We were on our way out to a gig, and saw the box from Discmakers had arrived - two days ahead of their earliest estimated date. How...
  2. Re: Players in Rhode Island/Nearby Massachusetts?

    It might help to know where in RI you are. It's a big state with a few regions, so it would be good to focus efforts re: convening. I'm from the southern shores, though I live in the Florida Keys...

    Re: First mandolin for a Metalhead

    For electrics, I'd second the recommendation for Epiphone MandoBird, with some reservations. They're discontinued, so their pricing may include some supply/demand or collectors' item inflation....

    Re: Finders Keepers

    Here's a clip of the end of "Maggie May," with that all-important historic, classic riff. It seems Patti lost her place and ended too soon. Oh well! That's how you know it's live. ;) At least you can...

    Close - she's from New York. The reference is to the subway platform where she used to busk before she got discovered. The 9 train has since been discontinued. IIRC your 1 and 9 are highway route...

    Re: post a video of yourself

    Here is my duo Finders Keepers from our world debut at Parkside Lounge in lower Manhattan last night. This is the third song of the set, just after "Maggie May." (Unfortunately, the guy shooting...

    Re: Finders Keepers

    Oh, yeah, I've seen a bunch of those. Also, there are "worst band promo photos." :disbelief: But if you need a pick-me-up after all that, look up "funny country song titles." :))

    In fact, we address the above issue (somewhat) in the introduction to this song: "If you miss us, you're losers weepers." :grin:

    This is the third song of the set,...

    Re: Finders Keepers

    I think it would be really sad if a band called itself "Losers Weepers." :crying: I mean, life - and a musical career - can be sad enough without any help, but naming your musical endeavor something...

    Announcing the world debut of Finders Keepers, my duo with absolutely fabulous Patti Rothberg. We'll be playing a heady, eclectic mix of originals and covers - rock, folk, blues, and pop - with...

    Re: Ry Cooder 1970 mandolin video

    Yeah, that's the studio version, regardless of the visuals. A transformative piece of music for me - first time I'd heard mandolin played with that much strength, variety, and imagination, and rarely...
  13. Re: Dose anyone know anything about this mandolin or its value

    Good to hear from you! Glad you took our joshing in stride. Just so you know, it just can't be a Gibson. That scroll coming to a point is not Gibson style. There are plenty other aspects as well, as...
  14. Re: Dose anyone know anything about this mandolin or its value

    Oh, no worries. You have a right to your opinion, as do we all, and it's good to b e reminded now and then to mind what we say, because it's easy enough to get carried away with the repartée. We can...
  15. Re: Dose anyone know anything about this mandolin or its value

    Yes, autocorrect. Meant to include that in my rant. Relying on these apps way too much leads to ... OK, I'm repeating myself. :whistling: I love that "auto-incorrect." Sadly, too true. ;)
  16. Re: Dose anyone know anything about this mandolin or its value

    I don't think the misspellings we see so often these days are caused by illiteracy as much as a sort of sloppiness bred by an overwhelming tendency to text quickly. Which is something I don't...
  17. Re: Dose anyone know anything about this mandolin or its value

    While I agree that is a good approach, I disagree with the assertion that we've been inordinately demeaning in our assessments. I think we have concentrated on the instrument in our fun-making and...

    Re: Dealing with pokey string ends?

    Seems to me I nearly always get poked during the changing process, but never afterward. Bending the ends down is the key (regardless of what some folks have come up with as alternative methods) -...

  21. Re: Comments on the Value of Gibson A4 Mandolin with hard case

    That sure is a purty one! I'd be interested myself, but I got a 1916 just a year and a half ago. Re: price ... I paid $1650, with OHSC, but it was through an online auction, so there were fees and...

    Re: Dealing with pokey string ends?

    I push them down with the tip of my needle-nose pliers, which I would have at the ready because that's what I use to snip the strings. If I'm feeling ambitious I might grap the pokey bit and bend it...

    Re: You Never Can Tell

    Nice take on this classic. You capture the light, bright bounce that Chuck had in his version. I think people forget that, and tend to do it the way they would any other Chuck Berry song, with a...
