The Mandolin King – Preview

Here is something you don’t see often, a twin mandolin.


See the preview for the Manodolin King.



Cruz Quinal, “the mandolin king,” lives near CumanĂ¡, Venezuela in a mountain valley surrounded by sugarcane fields. Perpetuating 16th century Spanish traditions of guitar-making, Cruz fashions such musical instruments as cuatros, marimba, escarpandola, and his own creation, a mandolin with two fretboards. He is an accomplished musician as well. In this moving portrait, Cruz compares himself to a decaying colonial church across the street: revered yet neglected, the village altar stands, paint peeling, under the open sky. a film by John Dickinson distributed by Documentary Educational Resources

New electric mandolin — “Maid Behind the Bar”

Take a listen to this electric mandolin – you can hear the difference between the electric model and a regular acoustic model.


This is a video that’s a two-for. On the one hand, this is a new electric mandolin (an Epiphone Mandobird IV) given to me by my late uncle, Robert Thacker, who played a huge role in my taking up music. On the other hand, it’s a tune that’s been recorded many times before but was requested on mandolin by the user Guitar1201. Hope you don’t mind that’s it’s on an electric, buddy.

A Bowl of Bula with Mark O’Connor on the Mandolin

Here is Mark O’Connor doing one of his best pieces on the mandpolin.



One of Mark O’Connor’s mandolin signature pieces! “A Bowl of Bula” Mark O’Connor’s mandolin playing in this video from 1991 features the deft dexterity of both hands and powerfully loud strumming. O’Connor wrote this mandolin piece in 1984 while in Figi. To hear a group version of this song, link here to a 1987 video. www.youtube.com O’Connor became the World Mandolin Champion in Kerrville, TX as a teenager in 1982. Mark plays violin exclusively as of 1997, giving way to a bursitis and tendonitis condition in his right arm that would not allow him to play the mandolin or guitar any further at his top form. But the condition allows Mark’s violin bow arm technique to operate free from injury, with no hindrance. www.markoconnor.com http twitter.com www.facebook.com

All I did was take the fridge to clean behind it. Is supposed to be a quick, easy, but the end result was an urgency, a priority task repair. When the front of the refrigerator toppled, the extra weight did roll machines dig the kitchen floor vinyl and made a noticeable gouge in the center of the track.

If you have vinyl flooring anywhere in the home is likely to need repairs at some point. Pull on the washer, dryer or refrigerator from the wall, drop a heavy pot or Goofy on any number of innocent actions and results may be visible damage. Murphy's Law in relation to the vinyl coating is very emphatic: accidental bumps, cuts, cuts and scratches always occur in the most visible place possible or ostentation. Never going to happen in the mud or utility room, where nobody cares.

Repair vinyl flooring can be easy, depending on where the damage could be and how big it is. For some of the smaller sites, the solution is simple: Just take a spatula, clean the damaged area, as well as possible, and some of the adhesion strength of soil or under the edge of the flap nick. Use some heavy weight, like a brick or heavy book, to celebrate the repair until dry.

Sometimes an amendment curl or drop. In this case, the cleaning and scraping of the edge, and apply the adhesive layer. Then, the pile of bricks, heavy books or other plans, items weighing the repair until the adhesive established.

If you have storage space available, always keep the remains of floors, carpets and paint for minor repairs. If you do not have leftovers, cut a piece of vinyl a less visible, for example, in the refrigerator, inside a closet or behind the pantry door.

major repair can take more time and energy. Start by examining the wear patterns of the flats. If the damage is in the middle of a heavy traffic area, the combination of the word can be difficult. A small piece of new material will stand out as a sore thumb and may seem worse than the damage.

In these cases is probably higher Patch the best option. Their quality of care. If there is a pattern, such as grids on the ground, it is easier to hide the repair. Place patch in the play area damaged, and use a ruler and a knife to cut the two pieces together.

Raise the injured, and scrape a lot like adhesive residue old as possible. In then apply an adhesive coating on the patch and carefully position the play was old. Use bricks to keep the edges and corners, until the start of the adhesive.

If you cut the adhesive with precision cleaning of surfaces behind carefully and made the plane dry adhesive, the repair work should be almost invisible, and last until all the soil is replaced.

help with double substitution of the test chemical reactions?

7. when soap is added to hard water, soap scum forms solid. when water is added to baking powder, carbon dioxide bubbles. When lemon juice is added to the domestic use of ammonia solution, water is one of the products. you know how to tell a substitution reaction occurred twice in each case. please help! minimum, but a good explanation please.

When a metathesis reaction occurs at least one of the products will not be in the same phase as the reactants. In this case, all reagents watery, or rapidly form an aqueous solution. However, in the first case, you have a solid product in the second, receiving a gaseous product, and in the past, yields a pure liquid. This shows that you get the replacement of ions, followed by precipitation or decomposition. It is a simple substitution, without However, since you can not clean items back, which means it has to be double exchange.
