Who do you pick with?

    When I bought my first mandolin, I most wanted to play with other musicians. About twenty years later, I still don't play out that much, but I'm still working on it.

    I went to the iCoffee jam with the High Lonesome Strings last month and had fun. There's one tonight but I won't be able to make it. Event page here. Very nice folks.

    I also went to the first-ever jam of the Piedmont Old-Time Society this month at The Green Burro, 106 W McGee St. The second-ever one will be Thursday, May 7th, ~8pm to 10pm. I think some folks came earlier to go over songs and such. A bit younger crowd but also fun and very friendly.

    What about you?

    Hi Tim,
    I've been playing mandolin for only a year and a half, but I am totally smitten with the instrument. I've played guitar for about 30 years now.

    I go to a jam the first Thursday of the month at a church. I play at lunchtime with a mando friend sometimes. I play with a guitar friend every few months. I've been to a couple High Lonesome Strings events, but never seem to make it to the monthly jams. This summer I'm determined to get out to play more. I don't think I can get better without playing with folks.

    I went to the Kaufman mandolin camp last year, and I'm going back. I had a blast. It's a solid week of music, and there's always somebody to play with. I'm with you, practice is good, but playing with real people is what I like best.

    Hi folks,

    Started learning mando two years ago, I have brother who picks some guitar and we play once a month or so. I just wish I had more time to get together with other folks.
