Frank in the swamps Gonna get a Mandolin (21) RE: Gonna get a Mandolin 10 Nov 98

Well Hank, if you're standing on the edge, and for some incomprehensible reason you wanna hit rock bottom, playing music definately can get you there.

Won't offer any advice, just relate an anecdote...

I heard some old jazz musician being interviewed on the radio one time talking about Joe Venuti,of the great jazz duet of Joe Venuti(violin) and Eddie DeLang(guitar). Venuti supposedly told him that he and Eddie decided (as young boys) to become musicians, and furthermore, that they would form a duet of violin/guitar. They both saved up enough to buy the two instruments, went to the music store, got 'em, and then flipped a coin to see who would play what!

I don't know if it's the truth, but I think it's a great story.

Frank i.t.s.
