    Re: Gospel Sheet Music or Chord Charts

    My experience is that there about 1000 gospel songs and hymns that are 3 chord (or 2 chord) songs, so they are very easy to pick up if youíll pay attention. Learn the Nashville Numbers and you...

    Re: "What's That Sound?" Del McCoury jam

    I believe that all of these artists have the same agent, hence they are all playing together on these recordings. I attended a show about a year ago in Bristol, TN in which all of these artists ...

    Re: First song to learn on mandolin

    I am mainly working on playing fiddle these days, but I was thinking about this from that perspective recently, and I would recommend someone learn songs that will easily translate to picking up...
  5. Re: Octave Mandolin question: Teardrop versus mando-guitar?

    [QUOTE=Tmcmakin;1784491]To be a bit more exact, I already own a teardrop shaped OM. It's the Gold Tone 800+ and I like it a lot. It's very resonant and plays well after a setup. However, I have an...

  9. Re: Thoughts on starter fiddles/transitioning to fiddle

    I’ve been playing for about 10 years now. I tried to learn without lessons, which was a mistake, so I’ve gotten a bit straightened out, and play publicly on occasion. I believe it is the hardest...

    I suggest you try Gianna Violins. I believe you can find them via their website. Not so sure about the location these days. Steve Perry owns the company and is a member here. I called him up and he...

    Re: Get Your 4 Year Degree in Bluegrass

    It is certainly my understanding that Sierra went to Berklee to pursue a career in music (I think that's all they do there). She had a scholarship. Seems to have worked out nicely. I do not know why...
