    Re: Pig Jicking?

    She demands it of her students. Nothing wrong with that. When you hire a teacher you are hopefully a fan of her playing, and are paying for her knowledge, her method. Later, no longer her student,...

    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: Easiest Jam Tunes to Memorize

    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.
