    Re: moving my collection to Europe

    My first thought at seeing your post was that you were wondering about the physical aspects of safely moving a large number of instruments such a great distance. I'm a bit surprised but impressed...

    It's "VGC+", So >VG, <E. I'm OK on the meaning, just not on the reason. :confused:

    Re: Does anyone do this with mandolin?

    Ha ha ha! :)) Very clever! And what a great time-efficient how-to video - direct, to-the-point, succinct. No frills, no fat, no tangents. Spot on.

    I can see doing this, though it does seem piano...

    Re: Gibson F5-L 1991, what do i need to know

    Lava lamps ... love 'em. Got four of 'em. No idea why, just ... because. All were found at yard sales for not much. One band I had - well, duo - I'd set them up around the amps because ... well,...

    Re: Gibson F5-L 1991, what do i need to know

    Good point. Leave yourself just the best banjo, and trade the rest. After all, you can never have too many mandolins, but you can easily have too many banjos. ;) Some say even one banjo is too many....

    Re: Mandolin on this British Sitcom?

    The mandolin player looked very familiar; had to look him up. Yes, Toby Jones. Been in lots of movies and TV shows, including some Harry Potter movies and a turn at Truman Capote, whom he resembles -...

    Sarah Jarosz from her appearance on Austin City Limits last October.

    Her set was a bit disappointing, in that she played mandolin on the first song only. The rest of the time it sat in...

    Re: Post a picture of what's on your bench?

    I'll post because people have problems with this, and it's not hard to fix, once you know how.

    Open the photo with an image program. I just use Photo, which comes with Windows (I think). That is,...

    Re: Moveable chords

    Saying that ain't no part of nothin'. There, I've said it. ;)

    Take that first chord, for instance, A 2245. Having two A notes two octaves apart makes for a fine bass-treble dialogue. It enables...

    Same here. Just providing two different viewpoints, which should be able to peacefully coexist. The OP can take from each what helps most - including anyone else's suggestions - depending on what's...

    Re: Moveable chords

    I can see that. And it's probably preferable to make a two-note change between chords than a one-note. The ease of going between F 2335 and Dm 2355 is considerable, though, and the movement being on...

    Re: Moveable chords

    Perhaps I should have been more specific. 4224 and such is difficult for me. One of the strings gets blunted. But then, my technique is not letter-perfect. I don't plant my thumb on the back of the...

    Re: Moveable chords

    OK, now I see what's going on. And I was at least in the general area. Well, I guess it makes sense that the first chord I mentioned is also their Shape 1. And yes, it is a barre chord, so if your...

    Re: Moveable chords

    My general rule of thumb is: find alternate chords. There are several fingerings for every chord on the fingerboard; there must be one or two that are easier to play.

    I'm not sure what you mean by...
  21. Re: Where do the names F-style and A-style actually come from?

    Wait a minute - geography. Hadn't really thought of that. Not states, but cities. And Gibson started out in Michigan, so these could stand for ... Ann Arbor and Flint. Of course, there's also Holland...

    Re: Ebay: Copy of a Lloyd Lane!

    We have the headstock; that's the most important part. But yeah, several people mentioned the low quality and lacking utility of the photos. Wish I could see what they meant. Oh well!

    I think it's cute, even charming: Nelson Mandola. But then, who cares what I think? :whistling:
  25. Re: Where do the names F-style and A-style actually come from?

    This is pretty much how my A model got named. After a gig, I was fielding questions from an audience member while packing up. He asked me, "What do you call your instrument?" Not "What kind of...
