I’ve been keeping a written diary of the process of recording this from writing the songs and rehearsing to finding a producer and recording studio and recording and starting the mixing process at some point I’ll put it down it’s very interesting to say the least for those who don’t completely understand the entire process other than listen to your favorite music on the radio and go to Apple tunes and listening  to it there’s 1 billion steps in between

It's good to put a face to a name (Sometimes).

the CF Martin AF. No. 6 knows this baby well. It was his grandfathers. It is sweet. I had it repaired and restored. Not a bluegrass mandolin per se, but perfect for one of our songs.

I wrote the melody and orchestrated that   CMe up with the whiskey concept  Banjo player wrote the lyrics.  The recorded version that’s on the ep is phenomenal 

 

that  was our first time together since covid Shut things down. We didn’t even see each other for like 5 months. And then we did a Facebook live gig in the guitar players backyard to try and shake the rust off.

It is indeedie an AK Flat. New they sold for around $12 and now worth like 200 times that. Although it has a substantial sound box, it is not particularly loud nor twangie.

BTW I have been selling bootlegs of the EP in Washington Square Park for the past 3 months!
You can thank me later Dacapon.

Curiously AK Flat mandolins, their bodies were built in a jig. So the bodies are all the same. The necks are all slightly different as they were built out of whatever scraps of wood Martin had laying around the shop.
Years ago I took the instrument to CF Martin in Nazareth, PA right down the road from where my Brother lived. When we walked into the factory and  the receptionist summoned all the craftsmen out into the lobby to see our Mandolin. They were all fascinated by it and checked it out as to how it was crafted, the workmanship. We were then treated to a tour of the whole facility including the museum. There was another AK Flat in one of the show cases and you could see the differences in the neck and head. But what really caught their eye was the case we had. It was in near pristine condition which they thought was quite exceptional and rare.
I struggled with giving this family heirloom to Dacapon. But in retrospect I knew I had done right by Grand Dad and the Mandolin as Michael has treated her with the care and respect the instrument deserved. I could not be more pleased that he has included her in one of his lovely recordings.
Thank you my friend.

Don't you have people to handle all this shit for you???
Cut me in for some royalties and I'll handle all this stuff.

Wait a second, it's a bluegrass band, never mind........
Let me know when you get into pop music.
I hear Britney Spears might be available for singing lead.
