What's on your mind?
pct57: Very interesting Robbie!! Apr 15, 2014 20:02:04 GMT
Wild Violet: I have heard a rumour that a new instrument will be entering our house in honour of my 50th in June. I'd love to think it was the much longed for J45, but can't see it being possible with our financial situation. :-/ Apr 16, 2014 7:41:21 GMT
clydeslide: Fingers crossed for you. I'll bring mine to the meetup if I come. Apr 16, 2014 10:38:29 GMT
Wild Violet: Busking was also mentioned, so it'll more likely be something like a uke :huh: ;) Apr 16, 2014 12:07:17 GMT *
Mike Floorstand: Everyone having a good Friday so far? Apr 18, 2014 12:14:06 GMT
007: Nice family Easter so lots of guitar practice as I have lots of songs to learn Apr 18, 2014 17:10:09 GMT
ocarolan: Legged it slowly and sleepily up the hill outside the village this morning for outdoor GF service then slept most of thisafto thanks to waaaaay too much red wine last night. Fancy a bit of tea now... Apr 18, 2014 18:08:05 GMT *
007: Crumpet Keith thats what you need Crumpet ;) Apr 18, 2014 18:18:02 GMT
marcus: One of the things I like about Australia is that we are way ahead of the rest of you fellows... Good Friday is like sooooo yesterday. ES here... the calm before the storm of the real ES tomorrow Apr 18, 2014 18:18:37 GMT
Martin: Fabulous. Just spent a lovely day with the family. Great weather, nice food, plenty of booze....marvellous! Apr 18, 2014 20:01:18 GMT
ocarolan: Sounds great Martin. Me too, once I woke up. Thinking of changing my name to Merlot, which I'm continuing to enjoy now the rest of the family has gone to bed and I'm watching "Later". Apr 18, 2014 22:06:34 GMT
robbiej: Just finished an epic jam session with Leon and Peter (pnut). Delay pedals, strangely tuned guitars, Cornish yarg cheese.......bliss! Apr 18, 2014 23:52:43 GMT
walkingdecay: Worked up a banjo version of Shebeg Shemore. Unwise. Apr 19, 2014 20:56:14 GMT
007: why is that Pete? Apr 20, 2014 8:54:12 GMT
walkingdecay: I was trying get it to fit into Scruggs style, and just couldn't get it to work. Demo recording Apr 20, 2014 13:29:06 GMT
walkingdecay: Sets your teeth on edge, don't it? Apr 20, 2014 13:30:15 GMT
ocarolan: Not really...I rather like it! Greengrass music eh? Apr 20, 2014 15:37:38 GMT
Wild Violet: ooooh I like it too!! Apr 20, 2014 17:56:13 GMT
walkingdecay: I think it hits the problems of any slow-ish tune going north of the twelfth fret in Scruggs style: queasy intonation and the general tightness challenging both tone and picking. By contrast going up that way in fast tunes creates a nice tension. Apr 21, 2014 14:47:36 GMT
walkingdecay: May try getting another compensated bridge (bought one, broke it...) and trying again in a slacker tuning. Apr 21, 2014 14:53:18 GMT
