OK, here it is. New thread for all things Mando and anything else. Just post a number or 2 and let's see where it goes. I saw this on another site and it's been going on now for several years. It's fun and it helps with counting OCD...
All discussions are welcome, let's just keep it friendly...
So here's how it works, say something, talk about stuff and leave a number or 2 or 3 in order.
Has anyone seen anything good on Austin City Limits lately?
No mando content, but I had occasion to watch my DVD of Neko Case from ACL a few days back. Love that voice.
Welcome TSSN. I've been using my Christmas present! I got Apple Logic Express DAW software for the Mac. It's so involved and has SOOO many features I had to purchase a book to help me learn how to use it. It really is a nice tool and can produce some high quality recording. I've been using a MXL Condensor Studio mic, and it really reproduce the mandolin sound well. Acustic guitar sounds nice, add in some bass and I'm learning how to use Midi for keyboards and the built in Ultrabeat drum sequencer. All in all, it's a really nice package.
Neko Case uh? If I remember she did a nice cover of a Tom Waits song a while back? Do you know which one it was?
Restrung my Girlfriends Harmony A yesterday. Took FOREVER to set the bridge. Does anyone know if there is a suggested temperature/humidity level recomened for set-up of a Mandolin?
I'll have a look at the liner notes on my Neko albums.
Sweet sounding software set up. I need to get back to simply futzing around with Audacity...
Good Morning Mando Hangout. How is everyone today?
BTW, just got a copy of The Steep Canyon Rangers with Steve Martin-Rare Burd Alert. Good Record. Mike Guggino is a pretty good Mandolin player. You should check them out if you haven't already. I've seen them live several times without Steve Martin. They are excellent pickers!
Anyone out there?
33, 34, 35,
I don't really get what this is,but then there is nothing unusual in that.
I'm in New York for a few days, Saw Steve Earle last night. He played his Gil some. Will do my pilgrimage to Mandolin Bros. and Retrofret I hope.I like to stop in to Matt Uminoff's when I come to town. Not really buying but I do like to look. The Soho club I went to last night --"City Winery" is a good club. A little pricey maybe ---Grisman coming in March.
"33" to you Rolling Rock fans.
Barkeep, put Ben's on my tab...
Ha! Welcome Ben! You got Trumped on your 33. This thread doesn't have to make sense. It's just a place to hang out and chat about all things Mandolin and Music. And do a little counting which helps with tension and stress at work and apeases my OCD a bit! Anyway, welcome and please stop by anytime!
I've never seen Grisman live. Would LOve too...
That's OK TSSN, first round is ALLWAYS on the house!
I wonder how the guy sitting next to me in the office would react to some Mandolin playing between phone calls!
51, 52, 53, 54, 55
Come on now. Some of Y'all reading this thread, drop on in for a drink and leave a number or 2...
Thanks for the free drink. Careful, I'll drink the bar dry.
I can't find any Tom Waits credits on the 5-6 Neko Albums I own, but I did find this:
Howdy Manolin boy! Welcome. Thanks for the link TSSN!
Hope Y'all have a great day and keep on pickin'!
Really looking forward to this weekend. I'm playing with 2 different acts (maybe sitting in with more) at a benifit in Greensboro, NC for a dear friend battling cancer and battling medical bills...Anyway, looking forward to the music!
