Skaky Video Series #2 – Cold Rain and Snow

I got some good advice (thanks, O3) about correcting shaky video that finally got me to start learning some basic techniques with Adobe After Effects. This video is still shaky, but much improved from the raw footage. After fiddling with this for way too long, I found the cheesy rain and snow effects. Then I knew it was time to stop.

The event is the Richmond Folk Festival, on October 10, 2010. Tony Rice and Peter Rowan are performing “Cold Rain and Snow.”

    I’m getting String Fever again, maybe we should start a Mandolin Orchestra? It’s something that I ponder time to time.

    Check this out, and notice all the great old photos of these string players in canoes and boats :

    You’ll especially like this link to Door County :

    If you got the patience you could show me how to play “Cold Rain & Snow” on Guitar and mandolin.

    I heard a mandolin piece on PHC tonight that I might listen again to tommorrow during rebroadcast that was really beautiful.

      That song pretty much just goes back and forth between Dm and G. I’ll check into it furthur and see if it has any other parts. Happy to play it with you sometime.

    I’m going to pop by soon to try to get a portrait of Weezie and your mandolin. I’ve always liked the sustain your instrument has and after reading this I can see why.

    Kentucky Artist Collection “Oval Hole” A-Model Mandolins

    This Kentucky mandolin is sweeter than black-strap molasses.

    In the early 20th Century, mandolins like these revolutionized the way music was created in America. As an orchestral Instrument the mandolin enjoyed an unprecedented popularity and the instrument of choice was the flat-backed, oval hole mandolin, most often constructed in the A style configuration. Most of those mandolin orchestras are no longer with us but the popularity of the instrument has not waned.

    Oval-holed mandolins are a bit less percussive than their f-holed counterparts and produce a warmer quality of tone. It is this richness of tone that has drawn so many artists to the KM-170 Series Kentucky Mandolin. In keeping with tradition and design the neck joins the body at the 10th fret. The slim, fast neck is constructed of a single piece of maple and is re-enforced with an adjustable truss rod. The neck is attached to the body with a complex dovetail join for maximum security and sound transmission. The bridge is adjustable for easy adjustment of string action. Tuning is quick and precise with the M-120, 14:1 ratio Gotoh tuners. The snakehead peghead shape is overlaid with Indian rosewood then inlaid with pearl and abalone in the unique arrowhead design.

    Kentucky KM-174 Standard A-model Mandolin with Oval Soundhole Features:

    Solid, hand-carved and graduated spruce top

    Solid, hand-carved and graduated flamed maple back & sides

    Solid one piece maple neck adjustable truss rod

    Nitrocellulose lacquer finish available in three color options

    Rosewood headstock overlay with mother-of-pearl Inlays

    High quality, nickel-plated Gotoh tuners with engraved plate

    Traditional rosewood bridge and bone nut

    Dovetail neck to body joint at 10th fret

    The KM-174 delivers visual appeal and sonic power.

      Yeah that mandolin still sounds great even after that guy dropped it at that party that night and cracked the solid, hand carved, flamed maple sides.
