  1. Re: What price level and up gets you a "lifelong keeper" mandolin

    I think it very much depends on what you need to do with the instrument.
    When you see Thile play, you see that he is all over the fingerboard, way up the neck, playing on every string. Yet every...
  2. Re: What price level and up gets you a "lifelong keeper" mandolin

    You are someone who has changed your instruments quite a lot, it seems to me Jill. However I get the impression you're fairly settled at the moment?

    Re: Road trip music

    Dr John Plays Mac Rebennack was one of the first CDs I got (moving out of my cassette period). I'm also with you on the reggae and Greek fronts (actually Cretan music in my case).

    Nowadays I tend...
  4. Re: Favorite Electric Mandolin Albums or Artists?

    Wrecking Ball by Emmylou Harris.

    Legendary production by Daniel Lanois, with quite a lot of what I understand to be some kind of electric mandolin played by Daniel.

    Re: Patrick Sky RIP

    I saw Patrick play in Black Mountain, North Carolina on my honeymoon in 1983. It was a double bill with singer Rosalie Sorrels. He played quite a lot of Uilleann pipes and had somebody with him on...

    Re: Celtic Mando vs Bandolim

    Actually, Stefan Sobell mandolins do look quite different from (for example) F5 mandolins, and do look a bit like bandolims, especially his large-bodied ten-string ones, so I think it's a fair...
  7. Re: What artist/album got you started with Trad?

    Actually I thought that too. NK (Nigel) Forster wrote quite a long article called 'What is a Celtic mandolin' a few years ago, in which I made some comments....

    Re: Celtic, irish cd's

    I particularly like this Facebook video of Ye Vagabonds playing this two mandolin set.

    Hard to tell , but they do seem quite different. Does the Dow have a wider neck?

    Re: Struggling with Eastman V-neck

    Ah yes. Janice Reavell (who I should think you know) got one from him in November. Amazingly I bumped into her in Celtic Chords in Stonehaven where she had bought it. Nice.

    Are you ok when you play your old mandolin (a Vanden, I think) ?

    Re: Greek mandolin music

    I bought a CD by Michalis Kontaxakis when I went to a course at Labyrinth. I think this video is from the recording session.

  16. Re: Walter Douglas MBE, played by Dagger Gordon

    I would say it was an octave, tuned ADae.
    It was bought from Stefan Sobell as an 8 string cittern, but cittern seems to have become something with 10 strings now. I still refer to it as my cittern...

    There is a lovely flow and bright attractive sound to Finn's Rescue. Really catchy piece of music. Good luck to them.
  20. Re: Apparently you can play a slow air on a fretted instrument ..

    Moving away from tremolo, I want to note that Macdara's performance is not on mandolin but rather the bouzouki, and that involves a different approach. Indeed, his use of chords takes his style...

    Re: Mandolin Orange is now Watchhouse

    And the Beatles might still have been the Quarrymen.

    I have to admit though, I don't much like the name. It sounds too much like Washhouse, conjuring up images of a laundry or worse, a bathroom.
  22. Re: Learning Octave mando as a regular mando player.

    If you're interested in that, tuning the bass up to A works very well, giving you ADae.
    I only ever use that tuning, and I can play in any key. It also lends itself to song accompaniment, especially...

    Re: 2018 Frank Tate tenor guitar!

    I think his instruments sound great. You've probably seen this two mandolin set featuring the 'blue' mandolin he made.
