Well, last night was kinda frustrating. There were maybe 2 or 3 songs that I'd played before (mainly those that Branwen and I started out together - World Turned upside down, Spanish Ladies). But I had no problem following the guy across from me with the guitar and harmonica. It also seems like there are to many chiefs and not enough Indians. When it came time for a lead, everybody tried to play one - the harp guy, Mr. whistle, etc... Mr. whistle over there needs to get over himself. A little bit goes a long ways. After a while all those whistle tunes start to sound alike - kinda like blues harmonica. Anyways, the beer was good. Not sure if I will be back again.

I did have a good time, even though the above doesn't give that impression.

Of course there will be times when two people start a bridge atthe same time, that's what happens in impromptu playing...

I really dig your bodhran... I'd love to get one of those..

At any rate, I had a blast, and I hope you'll be back for the next session on Oct. 4th...

*sigh* Sounds like I missed some serious fun.

Waylon Fan....sometimes chiefs outnumber Indians. It's what makes a jam session a jam session as opposed to having a band. Just happens that way sometimes.

I hope you do come back. I could stand to play fiddle on some Waylon songs, and do a little backing vocals...and I will sit in the corner and be a good little Indian.

AND, we'll trade Waylon for "whaling.'

Is your drum a 14" or 16"? Also, the site says the drums are available in different "tones"... is yours a specif model or tone? I really like what you had last night... did you get your tippers from this guy as well?

mine's a 16".. thanks for asking...(drum that is!) It's my understanding that he basically has one "model". When I chose mine, most of his drums seemed to be pitched a bit high for me, but I grew to like it. (also it's mellowed in the months that I've owned it.) The tone was a bit off last night as I let the skin dry out a bit. I need to care for it better. Albert sells most of his drums by mail/email. The advantage of living here in town, is that you will get some choice. He's only doing the red finish for now, but each drum is unique in look as well as sound. End of commercial. (Albert, if you see this, I want a commission from any resulting sales... or maybe a free lesson?!)

It was nice having Waylon Fan & Jeff (nice of you to join the "cat - welcome) there. It really was different than it has been. I think every person who participates adds something different to the mix. I hope you'll be back to try it out again.

I can't make it - but I am planning on being there next week! RedCelt - if you're looking for a good session, ya gotta make the Sons of Hermann Hall jam on Thursday night. It's wide open, style wise, but they say "the only thing electric is the campfire'. It's gotta be the best one in Texas. There is normally two or even three rooms goin' and some great pickers, singers, songwriters. It's a really good bunch of folks. You might give it a shot, some Thursday (every Thursday, starting about 8).

Jed,

I've been interested in that one since I heard you talk about it years ago at the quill sessions. I've kind of stayed away because it sounded waaaaay above my level, and I expected to be audience. I enjoy just sitting back and listening to a jam as much as anybody, but just playing audience hasn't been enough for me to clear the decks on a Thursday. Aaaaaanyway, I still want to make it if only to hear/see you and possibly young Jeff if he's around.

Mimosa- good point on clearing it first. I hadn't thought that far, though Nick is one of the people who mentioned the off wednesday possibility to me. I was on such a "session-high" from my first session in months that I didn't pay attention, and don't exactly remember what he said. It probably would be a good idea to check. I think that I'll just drop in tonight with no expectations and see if anything starts (though my bodhran and song books just might sneak into the truck and come along for the ride)

Sorry if this is an inappropriate interjection into this thread, but- where can I go in Dallas Sat. Oct 21-Tues Oct 24 for live folk/celtic/ type music? Or a good pub? Hoping to test drive Albert's bodhrans while I'm there. I'd love to check out the Wed. session, but that, alas, is not in the cards. I'll be in the market district, if that's any help. Thanks in advance.

Bardford - on Oct 21 you can't go wrong by visiting YOBB in Fort Worth (the pub in this thread). We'll in Oklahmoa during that time.

Try the Dubliner on GREENVILLE AVE in Dallas 214-818-0911, or the Emerald Mist in Dallas at 972-671-6478 or you might try Poor Davi'ds Pub in Dallas at 214-821-9891. There's sure to be good music at all of these clubs. Poor David's is one of the nation's oldest and bets folk music venues. It's a bit of a dive, but has a great sound system, books top notch acts and has some wonderful history!

Best of luck!

Missed you all, and I'm such a jam junkie, I kept looking at the clock and wondering, "So, I bet they've played 'Roddy McCorley' by now." And "I might have time to squeeze in a song or two if I leave NOW," at 10:00 PM. Once touring is over, I know I'll be heading west again! Keep a seat in the corner warm for me! (Well, on second thought....)

This is gonna sound dumb but does this thread refer to a real session or is it a virtual on a la Mudcat Tavern sorta thing?


Either way, Branwen, I'd recommend the 14" Albert bodhrán. It takes a little getting used to at first, but once you do, you can do anything with it that you can with a 16" drum. What's more, it seems like the tone control is more dramatic. You have to move your left hand more to achieve the same amount of tone variation with a 16" bodhrán. Don't get me wrong, either size of Albert's bodhráns is a fine drum. The 14" is just a personal preference. of mine. I use a foot stool for my left foot. This raises up the playing surface, while still allowing me the smaller drum.

Slán,
Rich

Rich,

It's a real pub in Ft. Worth, with a great friendly session. Amateur that I am, I'm well balanced by some good (and tolerant) musicians.

I went with one of Alberts 16" drums to wean myself off of my 18" Paki learner model. I had thought that I had awfully big paws to be stuffing into a 14", but I completely agree on the sound. After listening to both, I can say that it's entirely a matter of personal preference.

*Sigh* It's the off week for the every-other week session... rats! I've been living at work since last wednesday and could use a night of yeling my voice to shreds...(it's not much, but it's what I call singing...)

I'll be looking forward to seeing all and inflicting my music again soon,
