    Re: How to practice Circle of 5ths

    It's really the circle of 12ths. Or 11ths, depending on whether you go CW or CCW.

    Re: Where’s the easy-does-it method?

    For me, and not everyone thinks so, mandolin was very hard. Excuse me, is hard. I'm making progress now, but once I abandoned the instrument completely, just gave up. Those high tension double...

    Re: Absolute Silence

    i wonder if a violin mute would work? Be thankful you're not also trying to get in a couple of hours of baritone saxophone practice.

    Re: Easiest Jam Tunes to Memorize

    I use both. You can use notation as a shortcut to learning, but one way or the other you have to hear it to remember it. Use both.

    Re: Easiest Jam Tunes to Memorize

    I won't suggest tunes, but will give you some good news: The more tunes you memorize, the easier it becomes to memorize and remember tunes. Counter-intuitive, yes, but many people will verify.

    I love Afro Blue. And Wave.
  14. Re: Right-hand Exercise Based on Snare Drum Rudiments

    I would buy a ticket to that!

    It might be helpful to add string skips to the exercises.
  15. Re: Looking for some insight into microtonal mandolin

    Not pleasing to me, but I think that if you listened to that tuning long enough it would begin to sound normal.

    Re: Jazz Players

    And remember, you can play just about anything over the dominant chord, as long as you resolve it (Unless you're the bass player or comping).

  21. Re: fun NPR desk concert, shows a nice Kimble and Gibson, and mor

    I love Tiny Desk. Very few Tiny Desk concerts do not appeal to me, and I find myself digging genres that I would not normally listen to. The Anderson .Paak for example. Favorites for me so far are...

    Re: Getting into Jazz Tenor Guitar?

    Are you interested in teaching tenor banjo style chord melody, or more like just picking up tenor guitar as a modern melodic jazz instrument? As in Tiny Grimes, but in 5ths? Either way, I'm in.
