Ok...I love to watch videos of other folks playing...I pick up alot of nuances and things and ideas for my own tunes...so post away, don't be shy: http://www.mandohangout.com/topic/35930/#408370
My new Blevins mandolin is coming along well! I'm really going after all of these fiddle tunes and even though it's opening up slowly I hear an increase in sustain, volume and also a "deepening" of the mids and highs. I suspect the lows will be the last part to open up, especially given that it's an Adirondack Red Spruce top.1 comment

Almost all of my family is from Daviess, Ohio, and Hancock counties in north western Kentucky in the Owensboro Kentucky area and they are great folks and a great family...boy do I love them and miss them! Especially my "grandfather" who died in 2001 and my granny, who were both a huge influence on my love for country, folk music, old-time fiddlin/banjo and bluegrass, and also fishing and "fox-hunting" and raising hunting dogs, as I used to spend my three months of summer every year with my grandparents in Kentucky from the time I was about 7 or 8 years old way on up into my twenties. My birthplace, however, is a little town in south central Illinois called "Effingham" ( about an hour and twenty minutes east of St Louis Missouri, and another 50 minutes or so west of the Indiana Illinois state line ) but I was raised in central Florida. I have always been involved in music my whole life starting in band when I was real young all the way up to studying one year of music in college. I sang tenor and played mandolin in a bluegrass group for about 5 years called "Jerry Sanders & Seminole Ridge". Jerry used to sing and play in Carl Storys band back in the 80s. Now I am married and living and working abroad in Argentina and playing a little spanish guitar part time ( and the banjo. I originally came to S.A. to study the bible and do some missionary work and felt led personally by faith to stay around for a while and improve my spanish speaking skills.
