    Yup been out of circulation here myself as well - -I think someone said it -- its seasonal. This has been a pleasant summer in Ohio and everyone is out doing things -- I think we are in for a cold snowy winter and that is when the chat will pick back up!

    Hi Everybody,

    I am a seriously green-afied new mandolin player. I have a Michael Kelly mandolin. Can play a few BG tunes while looking at the music... looking to get going here. Anybody in the Cleveland area?? I am in Cleveland Heights. Also looking for a teacher if you know of someone to suggest. Thanks! ~Brooke

    Welcome Brooke! There are several Cleveland-area pickers, they should be chiming in before too long.

    Hi All,
    I'm newly registered but have been reading the forum for awhile. I'm posting with some information for Brooke. This post may not be as soon as Tracy was thinking it would be, but here it is.
    There are a couple of picking circles you might be interested in here in Cleveland. One is right in your neighborhood at the Fairmount School of Music on the first Sunday of the month starting at 2:00pm going until at least 4:00pm. The room where we pick is upstairs of the Roots of American Music store front, the door upstairs is just to the west of ROAM. It's east of South Taylor in among the store fronts on the north side of Fairmount Blvd.
    The other circle I know about that you might like is at the CanalWays Visitor Center in the Metro Parks off of E 49th south of Grant Ave. Hank Mallory works at the nature center and hosts the circle there once a month on a Saturday, sometimes the 3rd, sometimes the 4th. This month's circle is October 24th. Starting time is 1:00pm. Generally 3:00pm is the official stop time but you know how that can go. He's been having themes through the summer, which has been a great way to come up with and learn new songs. This months theme is 'John Prine', but really any song will do. Best to have 4 or 5 songs ready, three to four chords in a song to keep it fairly simple so we can all join in. If you're not comfortable leading a song you can pass and just play along. Both circles are relaxed and welcoming to all levels of expertise. They are a lot of fun and I hope to see you at one or both. Jim

    Awesome, John! There may be several of you coming from the Columbus area... do you want me to put you in touch with each other and see if you can't get a carpool going?
