Mandolin [May. 15th, 2007|11:57 am]
Douglas Spencer
I used to own a mandolin.

I couldn't find it, I looked everywhere. No sign of it at all. *sigh*

A week or two later, I looked again. Still couldn't find it.

I've now bought a new mandolin. I went to put it in the obviously ideal place for it to live.

Guess what I found there?

Three mouldy socks and a bottle of HP sauce?

You've got two mandolins?

Bring them both with you on Thursday - I'd love a chance to play some music.

(I have never played a mandolin in my life, but I'd love to learn how.)

I haven't forgotten that I owe you a harmonica. We'll need to go visit a music shop sometime.

Damn! Or perhaps, hooray!

I only have four mandolins you know (flat backed East German, metal saucepan style banjo mandolin made by a London company around 1910, Ovation electro acoustic and a Suzuki neapolitan style roundback)

Plus a Paul Hathaway mandola.

And a cittern.

And three bouzoukis (what is the plural of bouzouki?), one Romanian, and two from New Zealand (one electro acoustic bass-zouki and a solid body electric)

So I have no idea what you mean ... ;-)

Instrument or slicing device? If the latter, I was thinking only the other day that I could do with one.

Was it my bra? Please say it was my bra. Someone seems to have stolen my underwear. :/
