Thanks Richard I will bring it along to the next sess.

My Mandolin has a adjustable Bridge with wheels but I find it a fiddly affair so I have purchased a standard Mandolin Bridge from a Chinese Musical instument shop in Camden. after paying £4.50 for the bridge the China men said "You have to carve it to shape .velly Ticky. I thought " Thanks for that.

I had a brief look at your Mandolin at the last sess and your Bridge is much lower then mine and the string slots are very deep. Mine are non excistant a hairs width in depth.

I am progressing very well with chord changes but it will not stay in bloody tune so its holding me back.

I guess its my fault for going to a Mandolin without knowing much about them.
I like it and of course wont burn it at Knockholt has I said threads back but its so frusterating. I will pay for it to be set up properly if thats what you advise.
Cheers Pete

Trouble is Fisheye I doubt very much I will be at FM until the night the Dealers are playing. which is the 18th after that I am not sure & it will be the end of ther month anyway. I was hoping to get down next Wed but I may have other comittments. Infact looks a definate.

Secondly I do really appreciate the people who have already looked at it, Good old, Keith & George , and countless others , but at the end of the day it does not sort the problem out at the end of the next day the bloody thing still wont play again. Im fed up with it.

If I am gonna progress with this instumentwhich I am, I have decided that its may need a set up and Richard Bridge has offered to briefly look at it and give his opinion. .   Im opting for that....

Its this or I might has well burn the thing it aint no good to man or beast has it is at present,

Mandolin from Hell.
If the Devil went down to Georgia he had my Bloody Mandolin with him.

So I have had enough and im going ahead has planned Im taking it to Lower stoke , Richard can have a quick look and I am gonna take it from there or I still be sodding about with the bloody thing this time next year .
See you soon , I will bring second Sax mouth piece down Folkmob on the 18th for the dealers

See you soon Pete.

Woe is me. As I had been expecting I've now joined the ranks of the many unemployed. I'd write a song about it but I've got 'The Block'. Then again, it may be just what I need. Hugs and words (and maybe a lift from Chatham Bus/Train Station) will be enabling. I'd love to be there but I'd probably be even MORE of a B.O.F. - Ho Hum!

Hi John, sorry to hear your news. The same brick hit me a few years back,however after getting over the initial financial shock I realised it was the best thing in my life. It is also difficult to get all those prearranged dreams in order. Then suddenly the door opens into a completely different world. Then you start to kick yourself for not doing it a long time ago. Hopefully your health is just as excited.

hopefully will see you at Lower Stoke. (PS banjo may come also, now that should cheer you up)

Pete the Hat: mandolins and banjo are both temperamental instruments, that's why it takes an above average musician to conquer them. so hang in there and when you can finally tie your fingers in knots, you will look back and understand why they are not the norm in folk circles.

Hey cuz - something good always happens as they say as I've finished "Just Marks In The Grass" so it now has a tune and a chorus.
I did say I might want to add something so this is what the chorus is at the moment, but it's not set in stone:-

"All that were were, are just marks in the grass"
"All the old ways, we're unable to pass"
"To our daughters and sons, all our families true"
"There's no way that this, should have happened to you"

See what you think, and if I can make it on 22nd then I will sing it, but it will probably get an airing on this coming Sunday at the Greyhound, Wheeler Street in Maidstone for the combined Don/Clive/Shirt murderer birthday bash.

THere is a thread somewhere about it but here it is again - from an email from DonT on the 19th January

Hi Folks,

Just to let you know that there will be a combined Birthday Celebration for Don Thompson, Clive Lever, and Kevin Henty taking place on SUNDAY FEBRUARY 8TH 2009.

If you are a friend, enemy, or acquaintance (creditors need not apply) of one or more of the aforementioned hard drinking reprobates, you are cordially invited to come along and partake of the excellent brew, and the pleasures of this social occasion.

The Venue:-    The Greyhound Pub, Wheeler Street, Maidstone, Kent ME14 1UB (Junction with Holland Road).
The Time:-       Noon - Till 10.30pm.
The Day:-         Sunday 8th February 2009

The Other Reason:- For several years, our genial hosts, Peter & Ronnie, have supported us in running folk music and song evenings twice a month. They have been involved in festivals, and have hosted the annual visit of the Gloucestershire Morris men.

Throughout, they have been wonderfully welcoming and have always supplied food for the performers and audience.

Peter & Ronnie are retiring from the licensed trade at the end of February, and the Greyhound is, we understand, to be closed down thereafter. Just one more victim of the economics of our country.

It is our intention to send our hosts into retirement with a celebration they will never forget, and with a sense of just HOW MUCH their kindness and support over the years is appreciated.

Come, if you can, and help us achieve this aim.

One last thing to say. We want NO birthday presents from anyone! Just the pleasure of our friends, their instruments, and their voices.


Our thanks and best wishes
Don, Clive, and Kevin.

As to Lower Stoke - the event is not cancelled, there will be one barrel of real beer under gravity on the bar, I do not know which beer yet. The bus service is usable for arriving but dreadful for going back again - the last bus is about 3 or 4 in the afternoon.

As to the Crayford Arms, I know nothing, but it would seem counterproductive to be spitting the participants between two venues on the same day.

If the former Maidstone - soon potentially to be Crayford Sunday sessions could be done mid month rather than end of the month, we could perhaps make a few of them.

Otherwise, even if Crayford is on Saturday and Stoke on Sunday same weekend I cannot make both. But if Crayford is hoping to attract the former Maidstone crowd, I guess they will want to keep it to the same days they had previously.

Oh hang it.

I am just hoping I am well enough to attend the upcoming Stoke.

Yesterday I learned myself Grey Funnel Line on the Sigma. I want to show off.

Its 8 and a quarter inches at it widest top and bottom and 16 and a half inches long, top and bottom ,without the neck. we sneaked into the photo Lab at work and I photo scanned the whole instument. got a complete colour print of the whole body which I plan to reproduce and make a replica.

Fisheye thanks very much for that above advice, If one can change chords on a guitar one can with determination change chords on a Mandolin.

The whole thing though is made a lot easier if the Mandolin is set up. in tune and one does not lose a bleeding eye with strings breaking every two seconds.

Apart from the expense of it all.Re Restring.after folk with good intent pop a string trying to sort the Mandolin out for me. so far I have purchased 2 sets of strings. 1 New Bridge.
two tuners. In regards to being Tempermentle. My Polish friend She very tempermentle, esspecially at Knockholt, but bloody easier to handle then my Mandolin at present.

now steady on chaps and chapesses this all getting complicated, no one is trying to split anything, lets get this straight shall we. The crayford arms is hosting a beer WEEK with lots of guest ales, not for us, but for the general public, i like many others thought stoke was the pub closing, i mentioned it to the landlady at the arms and she simply said if you want to , you can always come here. there is no clash, and no problems as yesterday i went to the arms and told her to forget it, as there is an obvious problem. Now if the april bash is to still go ahead which was posted on this thread earlier is also going to be a problem then she needs to know as soon as, so that she can cancel the beer order and food order, giving her a chance to arrange something else. hope that clears up any misconceptions.

RM - the April weekend is the same weekend as the St George's Beer Weekend at The King's Arms in Upnor, so none of Gundulf will be at Crayford as we will be dancing at Upnor. I have also asked Dead Horse who have said they will be with us. As for folk singers/musicians - many have already been asked "verbally" if they will be there as they were last year (The Mudcat post goes up when Rob CONFIRMS the date, even though we know it wis going to happen!!!). Not what you wanted to hear mate. A pity, as we like the Crayford Arms and it was great at the last one. If she does another, suggest you ask around if anything else is on before making a defo choice to run with it. You can hit me tomorrow night at practice if you want!!!!

As for the misunderstanding on this thread, the problem was caused by the email that was copied onto hear, trying to be helpful - but - you know what happens - people read half of it and then fill in the rest!!!! The Greyhound in Maidstone is closing (Used to have fornightly sessions in the week); The Nags's Head in Stoke is still here (and not planning on going anywhere - and Hoff is organising Monthly Sunday sessions.) Crayford Arms (nice place and people) COULD offer a new home perhaps, to the homless folies of The Greyhound?? (Only a suggestion).

Hope this helps clarify for all, and again, sorry RM that The KA event clashes with yours.

See you on Tuesday night.

Kev

Ps - please remember to tell your Landlady that we are really pleased with what she does for us and how she treats us when we are there :-)

Cheers mate.

I would like to go to Upnor again I throughly enjoyed the last one.
has for Crayford the same applies.

I await date confirmation for Upnor so I will have time to book the time off.
Richards session at the Nags was very good I have booked off the 22nd Feb already so I will be there without fail.

With 52 weeks in the year I guess there must be a slot for Crayford somewhere.

The best for me last year was Otford GREAT WEEKEND.
