  1. Re: Mandolin is always a good way to end a video.

    Works fine as a graphic display. :cool:

    I have had some success - not 100%, but close - by doing the following. Go back to your file and open it with your photo program - Photos, Photo Viewer, or...

    Re: Are either of these mandolines?

    I also want to point out that the guitar-shaped one has a bridge and nut slotted for six strings, not eight, despite its eight-string tailpiece. Bridges are easily replaced; nuts not quite so. I'm...
  3. Re: Today in Mandolin History - July 4, 1911, Gibson of Kalamazoo

    Aha! I thought there was something memorable about this date. Just couldn't quite place it. Thank you! :mandosmiley:

    Re: listing of rock songs w/mando

    Oh, OK. I listened for about a minute and had to stop. Found the overall sound really irritating. But yes, there's mandolin, albeit just as an accent, and not well played. But my taste doesn't...

    Re: listing of rock songs w/mando

    My opinion? Doesn't qualify. Not a rock song, no mando. Find songs by them that rate - I'll include them.
  6. Re: Mandolin is always a good way to end a video.

    Thanks. It cuts off a bit abruptly. I'm sure he was about to say, "It's a heckuva great way to kick off a video, too." And, "Mandolin can really sweeten the middle, also. In fact, anywhere you add...

    Re: Taj Mahal & Ry Cooder--mando content

    I believe this is the third or fourth thread on the subject. I wonder whether this has reached the point where it's time to combine them so people don't miss something. :confused:

    No kidding! :disbelief: But consider the alternative ... :whistling:

    Thankfully, I have mandolins. :mandosmiley:

    Re: What to pay for an old Gibson

    Well, I'm turning 70 soon. That's pretty old. The 50s weren't too bad a period for Gibsons, though most people prefer the teens and 20s. That said, I have pretty good tone and have worn fairly well...

    Yeah, but ... This is this, and those are those. I'm not "making you choose" between anything. :confused: This is a pretty specific topic, project, even. There are plenty of threads for those and...

    Re: listing of rock songs w/mando

    Thanks for that - I guess. I didn't see the time index in your post so I sludged through nearly three minutes of Wishbone Ash to hear mandolin. I'll never get that time back. :crying: Elton John has...

    Not for nothing, but I don't see where you've shared your story. Come on now! Tell us about what inspired you so.

    Re: What to pay for an old Gibson

    Looks nice. But only one picture? Words fail to convey how much I mistrust ads like that. Full disclosure, please.
  14. Re: Holding on to your personal Holy Grail mandolin

    If my eyes do not deceive me, I count four Heidens and one Gibson. :disbelief: I'm a little surprised. Now, I've heard and seen a lot of good things said about Heidens, but nowhere near anything like...
  15. Re: Beware this Fender FM60E at Guitar Center

    Actually, nope. Maybe that was their first instinct - relist - but someone nixed it; it's gone. Or re-relisted elsewhere. But that link is kaput.

    Re: Double-sided, double-necked violin

    So, Jo, do you think you could build a good-sounding one of these? You certainly have some remarkable skills and imaginative design capabilities. Or do you only make fretted instruments? :confused:

    Re: Randy Wood Two-Point at Carter's

    Is it purty? - Yep.

    Does it sound purty? - I'll bet.

    Does it sound "$50,000 worth" of purty? - Well ... :whistling:

    Will it make somebody happy to own it and play it? - I'll bet.

    Will...

    Re: My banjo killer (is not a mandolin)

    Yes, sir. Truth. I have played with some fine pickers who knew what they were doing with their instruments and how to play nice with others. I've also played with some others, and the less said about...

    Really? They're pretty easy to wound - their skins are quite vulnerable - which most of the time is good enough. :whistling: But yeah, perhaps actually killing them ... They do seem to propagate all...
  22. Re: Another misidentified Gibson mandola at Guitar Center

    Thanks for the insights - learning stuff I never knew. So then, it's possible they could sell the same instrument again and again, and as long as it kept getting returned, they'd make some money on...

    This is perhaps more for performance than home use, and clearly, this won't work for all people in all situations, but it sure is the most cost-efficient method I've seen.

    My banjo killer is a mandolin! :) It's a teens Gibson A, and holy wow it's got some volume. Actually, I've got two of them - one's in the shop, and we should be reuniting in a month or so - and both...
