New section - Mando-Banjo-Plucky - bad name?
« on: Jun 08, 2005, 11:53:04 PM »
It seems like quite a few members play mandolins, banjos etc as a 2nd instrument... So here's a section just for you. This isn't the fiddle forum, it's the fiddle and alternative strings section, so... why not :)

Is the name bad, btw?

Plucky sounds a bit silly or insulting
perhaps 'Plectrum' instead if you mean to imply a plucked instrument?
Hey why not non-bowed like I suggested before?

Fiddle Forum is a fine name. I now live in the Southern United States, and the joke is that violins have "strings" and fiddles have "strangs". What's in a name?
Mando and other instruments are all part of the spectrum... it's all good.
Just so you know, I'm a certified wacko, I make cigar box fiddles. Please visit at www.CarolinaFiddle.com.  I think experimentation and reaching for new ideas is all good.
Best Regards,
Steven (CarolinaFiddle)

Regardless of the name, it's great that there'll be a new section for it. I also play 4-string banjo and I'm starting at ukelele, so I think I'll be visisting the section quite a lot.
Maybe you could call it StringStriker section?

You could get really ridiculous and call it Mando-Banjo-Twangy-Thangs...the name as it is sounds ok to me, as a fiddler and mandolin player.

Umm, for what it's worth. I'm greatful for the new addition and ever so greatful for what it is named presently. "Pluck" is what you do to a chicken after you wring it's neck.

I'm not a phesant plucker, I'm a phesant pluckers son and I'm only plucking phesants till the phesant plucker comes.   ;D ;D ;D


Could be a new take on this old saying about duct tape:
If you can't duct it,  pluck it!  ;)

Why not call anything with strings that's not a fiddle a, get ready for this

                 A PLINKER!
 Maybe that's silly, but an old friend of mine at the Fire Dept. called my mandolin a plinker. I thought it was kinda cool. Probably no one else will though. Oh well, we all like different things and ideas, that's what makes America so great.

I think the name's fine too. Lets be clear, mandos, banjos and fiddles are natural allies. We should all unite against the true enemy who are, of course, the free reed mob  ;D >:D ;D

I spoke to some members at FH-UK last weekend, and the general consensus was not to have this section, since it dilutes what the Fiddle Forum is supposed to be, so I don't. As always, I listen to people, so I don't expect this section to stay for long....

Sad to hear this forum may not last, but I do understand. I would invite folks to the Old-Time and Good-Time Music forum at my website, www.brookfieldsmusic.net. There are forums for most any instrument there. I'd love to get some more fiddlers coming on. I think that the forum is great for multi-instrumentalists.

Thanks for providing a great forum for fiddlers and wannabes like me.  ;D

I understood that, just used the wrong term.  ;D

I think that a non-fiddle section is nice, but I also understand the concern that the forum will be too diluted. I just wanted you all to know how much I appreciate the Fiddle Forum and all those who make it happen.  ;)

I don't see why it dilutes the forum.  What is the forum supposed to be?  I think it enhances it.

Many members also play "Mando-Banjo-Plucky" things & would like to talk about them, especially in how they relate or contrast to fiddle playing.

I hope it stays.
