    Re: Top 10 (12?) choro to learn

    I guess the prime recommendation to anyone not entirely familiar is to listen to lots of choro. Total immersion. I wish I could go to Centrum one day or at least get Dudu to come back to the east...

    Re: Top 10 (12?) choro to learn

    Yeah, ain't it cool? That the style I dig - he's even covering 7 string guitar style.

    Re: Top 10 (12?) choro to learn

    I can see that however the players I have seen specifically Douglas Lora (who will be at Centrum) does considerably more than chordal rhythm. I can watch a top level mandolin player like Dudu Maia...

    Re: Top 10 (12?) choro to learn

    I looked more closely and noticed the list included a couple of ringers, recent tunes by Dudu Maia—-Libertad Coronha and Vai que eu to te vendo. Dudu had some tunes available for download from his...

    Re: Top 10 (12?) choro to learn

    If one was a beginner on each instrument, I'd agree.

    However, if you already play violao and bandolim ( guitar and mandolin) then learning choro style on both would work, as they would re-inforce...

    Re: Top 10 (12?) choro to learn

    One of my favorites and one I actually managed to memorize (but not to lay faultlessly up to speed) is Diabinho Maluco (Jacob).

    I don't know where the OP lives but I would highly suggest getting...

    Re: Want to learn Jazz mandolin

    Not sure just what David means by "important" but here's Paul Glasse, Austin home-boy.

    Re: Top 10 (12?) choro to learn

    Yes, by all means listen all you can to live bands and recordings. Lead sheets will give you the notes, but can't teach you how to function in a band. Aside from Jacob do bandolim's recordings that...

    Re: Top 10 (12?) choro to learn

    James,

    I've been to centrum before. There is a strong emphasis on learning by ear. I would recommend you pick a song that you really like and jump into it. Dudu will help refine your...
