    Re: Bluegrass in catalan

    Is it true that Joan uses colors to teach improvisation? I read that somewhere, but there were no details.

    There is one lyric that I didn't understand.

    Re: Bluegrass in catalan

    Awesome place, Barcelona. Never been there but am a big fan of the Sant Andreu Jazz Band. Young children up to teen age learning jazz and putting out many Youtube videos.

    Re: Sorensen Sprite!

    And your inlay work was awesome. I studied Chinese calligraphy before moving to China and know how hard it is to get the brush strokes to "breathe" the correct way. Anyway, thanks for the explanation.

    I clicked on this thread because I am a fan of the Sorensen Sprite, and that one is a beauty! I also love the Chinese calligraphy on the headstock: very unique and well done.

    However, I hate to...

    Re: Mandolin Orange is now Watchhouse

    I think that band names that incorporate a color make the name a bit more memorable. Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Mandolin Orange all come to mind right away. When I...

    Re: Fishman M200 / M100

    I like Door #3 also: Schertler DYN-M. I use it only when performing with the trio and using a Carvin amp that has 48V phantom power. So easy to stick on the top and run the wire under the strings...
  13. Re: How do I put 2 recordings from Windows Media Player to YouTub

    Exactly. One can go into "Camera" on Windows 10 and record a video. The computer microphone, however, isn't very high quality so I use a usb microphone. I recorded three videos with my trio, but one...

    Aaron, it looks like you went with the humbucker option rather than the K&K. Could you please explain why you made that choice?

    Thanks.

    Yes, I am a big fan of Isaac Eicher's playing also. His father wrote one of my favorite tunes, "Night in Paris", which I cover in a trio. Shelby Eicher plays Gypsy swing violin and his band covers...

    I have a Mike Black oval hole A2z with Virzi. I like it. The sound has slight overtones which gives a fuller sound to my hearing.
