    Re: Mandolin Orange is now Watchhouse

    I think that video is really good--they way the designs move through representing the words/themes in the song. It's not what I expected, but maybe that's why I like it as much as I do. Or that I...

    Re: Mandolin Orange Changed Their Name!

    I get it--the name change, and that's cool by me. And woah, that new song/video is a trip!

    ps--Is that a Sullivan A he's playing? I know he had one at one time.

    Re: How Do You Play Angeline the Baker and Why?

    Saw the topic and went back to pick the tune for the first time in a long time--a fun one. I agree there's good reason to work on both. I usually play it open but was just messing with it in closed...

    Talk about tonality!
  16. Re: Angeline the Baker // Mandolin Crosspicking

    Nice parts and I really like the tone you're getting. Sounds powerful but also warm/round. That's the combination I look for. What mandolin is that?

  17. Re: Ralph Stanley & Clinch Mountain Boys - GREAT 1972 video

    That's interesting because you can hear it just fine, even with Ralph and Curley Ray wailing away. Says a lot about his technique.

    Re: What's in your case?

    Sure Charley, you could pick yourself up a sixer of Miller or PBR for that in Mt Airy! I think the winner was $25. And I'll bet the winner was 5X the mando player I was! And probably half my age...

    Re: Avoid marking the top of your mandolin

    Yes, and another advantage I see to having a finger rest/pick guard is I'm more willing to let other people play my mandolin when they ask to. I'm not that interested in having someone other than me...

    Re: Avoid marking the top of your mandolin

    I may be mistaken but I believe so-called "pick guards" were actually called "finger rests" by Gibson in the old days. So the intent was to have something to "plant" fingers on. I'd recommend just...
