Got back into the singing bit on Friday night with Paul L and played harmonica at Walkeringham on Monday for short session in the break.
May do a few more with Paul at some point but he is on holiday for a couple of weeks so on hold for the moment.

Pangolin = eight stringed instrument made from the armoured skin of a Pangolin (scaly anteater) .sounds like a banjo and a bodhran being played at the same time so most of them have been destroyed!!!!!!

There was a youg Twangler named Tim
Who, Anglo opined, was quite dim.

In fact, "Well done" to him!

I don't think it is a Pangollin at all. I think he has bought the larger instrument in the musical family, the Llangollin. Very popular with whales, I believe.

Sorry Bainbow. I stand corrected, although I was sure Harry played Pangollin during his busking tours of Europe - I probably got the wrong film!
Hmm???? Let's think!
Third Man - sewers Vienna.
Slaghterhouse Five - abbatoir Dresden.
Fourth Protocol - the pier, Cleethorpes(?)
Henry the Fifth - sewers, Agincourt.
The Inn of the Sixth Happiness - lobby of inn.
Was it Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, then?
Or perhaps the Seventh Seal - in the circus ring when the first 6 seals are balancing balls on their noses.

Quack!

If it hurts your fingers to play with it, it's quite obvious that one should wear sturdy gloves at feeding time, or at least teach it to eat from a bowl.

It should not be blamed for mistaking fingers for finger-food, pending an examination by a qualified veterinary ophthalmologist to determine whether it lacks the visual acuity to descriminate objects at close range. (but it'd have a hard time eatin' ants if it can't see the little buggers within tongue range)

It arrives mid week with a bit of luck.
I already have a Charango from Peru but it is made from a gourd.
The guy said he was left it in a will and no one there wants to play with it because it makes your fingers sore but he did say they had tried putting strings on it but had had no luck.
So maybe it needs nylon strings or something.
Any way it was cheap so what the billy oh.
Mrs T says if a it turns out to be a Pandalin it is going straight to the zoo.
I suppose i could just fiddle about with the tuning until it sort of fits in with the guitar ?

Could this be a clever-dick name for the cumbus-mandolin, as depicted on my cumbus page?

http://www.purr.demon.co.uk/jack/Music/Cumbus/cumbus.html

If so it's got 8 strings, you use normal mandolin strings, but do your ears a favour and tune it down a semitone from usual.

The ten stringed armadillo is called a charango. Scroll down for the back view.
Don't know how many strings you can get on a pangollin though.
