Spanish stele of a girl with a pandura , 2nd century A. The earliest image showing a lute-like instrument came from Mesopotamia prior to BC.

During the 8th and 9th centuries, many musicians and artists from across the Islamic world flocked to Iberia. Two varieties of soundholes are present in the image.

She apparently retreated from public life after a bad LSD trip left her paranoid and hallucinating, with a ruined voice. Living with her parents and working privately in Edinburgh, she met and married bookseller Gordon Farquhar.

Introduction: One of the first records I stumbled upon, when trying to learn something about the “old-time ways”, but very much in isolation from the real thing, was a second-hand copy of John Cohen’s remarkable “High Atmosphere”. This recording, which started as a project to document traditional ways of tuning the 5-string, just knocked my doors off.
I have not been playing long, and I know there is a wealth of knowledge on this site, and I know there are instruments of higher quailty, but for the right price, the JB is a good value I also have a JB model Washburn, I am a new player and may not have the feel for what constitutes a good mandolin, but I like mine. I haven’t heard a MK but like you I’ve heard alot of good comments and reviews.
All the information here is provided free of charge for all seeking it. Using the resources here for financial gain without concern for the source and effort expended by all the contributors here is extremely disrespectul to say the least. I am about to choose a mando for bluegrass , and have only “messed ” around doing scales with a friend’s Oscar Schmidt F5 and on a Washburn Jethro Burns model which I love the looks and feel of.
Can anyone direct me to expert reviews on the Washburn JB model. Don’t know if this helps you any but goodluck in whatever you decide. The absolute best thing you can do if possible is to play an MK and see the difference yourself. Some models are represented by crops from these images and therefore not of the best quality. If you have a model that is poorly represented we always welcome good pictures and use whatever we can.

It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan. But, the term still held a lot of weight.
Here’s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in
Earl Eugene Scruggs (January 6, – March 28, ) was an American musician noted for popularizing a three-finger banjo picking style, now called “Scruggs style”, that is a defining characteristic of bluegrass three-finger style of playing was radically different from the ways the five-string banjo had been historically played.
But this is a record that grabs attention right from the start, with its surfeit of invention, ideas and imagination. Glyn’s music is difficult to get a handle on at first, with so many first-impressions forming a bewildering headlong rush through the ears. The kinda spaghetti-western-smalltown image that might readily be conjured up by the album’s title is one that translates into the slightly cheesy musical idiom Glyn adopts on Yahoo!
And, in keeping with those tales of the old West too I suppose, Glyn’s writing displays a strong sense of narrative too, as proved by the eight-minute epic Ballad Of Deano. Basically, Glyn can’t resist drawing attention to himself by means of undeniably impressive, powerfully crafted musical settings and lyrics that passionately and eloquently embrace entirely justified criticism of the unforgivingly corrupt corporate world in which we try to survive. Also, you can’t ignore Glyn’s acute and well-developed feel for bright and bold instrumental colour and creative texturing: If you take things at sound-face value, there’s quite a feelgood aura to the album generally, notably on the bouncy sunshine-pop of Down Amongst The Living and the iron-clad stompsome beat of School Reunion, and even on the more sinister numbers like The Doomed Ship Allegory and The Clown a very Bowie-esque portrait of a paedophile.
Payback-time comes quite literally on Groomed, an examination of coercion and abuse, which comes on like a breathless cross between The Cure’s Love Cats and the Hustle theme tune. A first hearing of tracks like Kafkaesque World can be distinctly overwhelming, with its potent juxtapositions lavish musical setting with smooth crooning delivery to voice the thoughts and words of a torturer.
Elsewhere, perhaps, it can be all too easy to get the feeling that Glyn is deliberately setting out to make an Impact capital “I”!
