    Re: Transcribe or Amazing Slowdowner?

    Thanks, sblock! I needed a thorough explanation like you've given. I use technology every day in my work, but don't do things like this.

    So with the right browser, I wouldn't need additional software?

    Re: Transcribe or Amazing Slowdowner?

    I'll check into that, but I'm mostly interested in changing YouTube video keys.

    Re: Transcribe or Amazing Slowdowner?

    Maybe this will help someone. I use Windows and Android, so am looking for applications for those.

    Re: Transcribe or Amazing Slowdowner?

    I'm looking at Transcribe and thought I would revive this thread. I'm interested in the slowdown feature, but am most interested in converting YouTube videos to my preferred key to play along with. ...
  6. Re: What are, celtic-, bluegrass-, classical etc. mandolins?

    I've been wanting an oval hole, though have never played one. How are those for classic country, which is primarily what I play, along with classical?

    We were on Fremont in the daytime. (What a cesspool!) No bands, some busking.

    Re: Las Vegas Music Scene

    We didn't bring our instruments (and I'm sure missing mine!). I do think busking might be fun. Maybe sometime when you come to Dallas???

    Re: Las Vegas Music Scene

    No success; however, I didn't pursue beyond this thread. Surely some jams are happening. Some shows are opening in November.

    Re: mandolin teachers

    Jon Hall, Nacogdoches, TX. Also, Gerald Jones, Garland, TX, as long as you're not a beginner or have natural ability. It really depends on what you're looking for, though. My regular teacher is a...

    Thanks so much, Jon. This album is available with my Pandora subscription - and I've started listening.

    Las Vegas Music Scene

    I'm leaving this Saturday on a girls' trip to Las Vegas. Does anyone know of any outdoor performances, jams, etc. we can attend while we're there? We're returning home on Wednesday.

    Re: Building Speed with 16th Notes

    I envy those of you who can play hours on end. I get one hour each day I don't have a lesson. As to jamming, I hope to visit a local group soon. If you've seen some of my other recent posts, you know...

    Re: Building Speed with 16th Notes

    So, is there a distinction between playing 16th notes exclusively and tremolo, other than speed, maybe? I've never struggled much with tremolo. My greater challenge is 8th, 16th note combinations....

    Re: Building Speed with 16th Notes

    I've never known exactly what a "fiddle tune" is. Google gave me a fiddle tune archive, which I've downloaded to my phone. Some of these I've played off and on. So, is it important to memorize these?

    Re: Building Speed with 16th Notes

    Thanks, Dave. This what I'm looking for. My metronome is always going and I do gradually increase my speed. Relaxing is challenging, but I'm working on it. I'm also challenged rhythmically. ...

    Re: Building Speed with 16th Notes

    Thanks for the replies. I didn't intend for this post to be about tremolo; however, I can see how it might be interpreted that way. More and more I'm working on pieces with 16th notes. I figured I...

    Building Speed with 16th Notes

    I'm interested in knowing, if you play a 2 octave G scale with 16th notes, what is the fastest speed you can play cleanly; i.e., quarter note equals what number? For clarification, each note is...

    She told me what they mean for violin, but doesn't know about mandolin. She suggested maybe tremolo.

    I'm working on a piece of music with turns and mordents. Does mandolin observe these notations?

    Re: Specific Pick Direction Question

    The piece is from Musicnotes.com, if that helps. I'll try to post a section tomorrow.

    I do work with a teacher, but she's a professional violin teacher, not a mandolinist. She had me playing...
