The Long Hiatus

Wednesday, December 29, 2010


Well it's been a long while since i've picked up tha old mando ( had'ta dust her off & tune her up, discovering I need new string ). Tho I'm mainly a fiddler, mandolin was my first instrument. 

It served me well in later learning what little I know of mainly OT fiddlin. Since retirement nearly 9 years ago and finding time on my hands, I uncased my old fiddle & started re-learning a few old tunes. Now I will attempt to give some attention to tha old "Franciscan".

I read no music. What little I play comes from what little natural talent I have and lot's & lot's'a practice. I play mainly for self entertainment. I'm an FHO member with same avitar with different name....."Ozarkian  D.L."

Now....where'z thet music catolog fer ordering me a new set'a strings ?

Country hillbilly. Texan by birth.......hillbilly Ozarkian raised. Retired railroad ( Rock Island C.&N.W. ....Katy....S.P.....& U.P. railroad ), switchman...brakeman...conductor. I've been "fiddle & mando fascinated" since pre-teens from hearing 2 old Ozark Co. Mo. fiddler brothers Kerr & Burt Mccullough. I have developing " essential tremors" which affects my playing considerably. I play mainly for self entertainment.
