    I don' play the mandolin but we have one in our band. I like the rhythm once you can get the blue grass out of the player!

    Just how do you get it out Josh, a broom handle?

    I like constant verbal bashing. I find it works well on stage.

    if your mandolin player is anything like me, the verbal abuse won't work. we've already heard it all so many times that it's just mildly irratating background noise, mostly drowned out by the guitarist.
    the broom handle idea is probably the best idea-just don't try it on me. i learned long ago that playing in a band is kinda like taking a shower in prison. if you drop your pick, just put your foot on it and wait 'til nobody's looking to pick it up.

    I was playing was soloing over the mandolin a few weeks ago in my living room Thursday night jam session and as I was playing I realized that I was playing totally differently then normal. First off I had to come way done in volume which, for some reason, made me play more melodic lines. I also am so used to hearing the guitar changes that hearing the mando chords lead me to different lines. The chord voicing of the mando really bring out notes that are a bit more hidden when played by a guitar. It was a great jam for me. I felt like a was able to solo in a way that I had not in the past.

    From a mando players point of view do you play your chord voicing differently when you play gypsy jazz? In other words do you play a -7b5 in a different way then you would other wise for the sake of the music?

    Cheers
