Warbler,

Nice guitars!
I'll give you the heads next time I'm headed for CA.
Could be this winter for a few weeks.

A climbing friend of mine Carrie Bean plays the Stand-Up Bass in New South Fork Bluegrass... I have no such talent, so I aid climb and listen to Bluegrass on the Wall Blaster!

Those two sound really great together - the custom's got a real broad range, good volume and sustain, and the Martin's got a real bright and crispy sound.

I'd love to put some new strings on 'em and listen to some good players on them two.

Since my brother died (he played really good bluegrass guitar), I've found it kind of hard to connect with others musically in quite the same way. I'm trying, though.

The other day, a friend of mine who plays the "button box" came over to my place, and we jammed for a while (me on guitar and mando). We had a good time, even though it was Irish Trad music, not bluegrass. But dang, if my little Mac laptop with its Garage Band (and my Yeti mic) doesn't make for some serious one-man-bandage fun!

Button box guy and I laid down just a spontaneous track of Loch Lavan Castle (a British Isles fiddle tune), and it sounded kind of cool. I went back a few days later and added guitar. That made it sound way better. Then I added 5-string and bass tonight. Pretty much just the first take on each, but it almost felt like being at a jam (only I was jamming with myself).

Any of you musicians regularly record your own multiple tracks?

I think it'd be cool if we brought as many instruments as we could to one of the area shindigs.

I'm not sure how bluegrass or any music for that matter can get any better than this. One of my all time favourites.

Chief--that was beautiful, and a gathering of some of the current best!

Walleye--who is that crew?

Here is Piney Perkins my 1918 Gibson Mandolin. It loves bluegrass and I do too, I must confess that I'm not a fast enough picker to git 'er done.

Hey Sports fans,
If anybody is planning on being in S. Lake Tahoe over MLK weekend, drop on by the Fallen Angel on the 15th. One of my bands (BISON) is opening for the Infamous Stringdusters. $10 advance/$15 day of.

WAIT!!! Only $10 to see the Grammy-nominated Infamous Stringdusters ?!?!?!?!?!!!

That's right - $10.

"Who are the Infamous Stringdusters," you ask. Well, I've posted this link before, on this very thread, but it bears repeating:

""Crowley plays mandolin but he never brings it, the big pussy."









I'll bet Crowley likes Seals and Crofts then.
Dash Crofts sure can play a mean Mandolin.
My favorite album was "Year of Sunday"

You're so right, he used to sing too. . .
I got to see Rice and Norman Blake together years ago. . .
when he could still sing. What a duo!

Kevin he makes it look so easy I wannna take my guitars and smash em up, cause I'd never be able to be so casual playin something so hard. Like cruisen 5.12 with no problems. But I could NEVER smash up my babies! Well I'll just be frustrated thinkin I could get that good.
Peace
