    Re: Arm rest. Y or N?

    Re: Caterina Lichtenberg‘s On-line course

    I’m a subscriber as well. I’m pretty sure it is one of the only online course for classical mandolin out there. As Kurth stated, you should be able to read standard notation and have more than an...

    Made this recording a few years ago. I learned it by ear from the original tv theme. It’s not terribly difficult to play.

    Re: Bach E Major Prelude fingering

    I was in a class with Caterina Lichtenberg and asked her this very question. She uses DDUD. It helps to play the first 4 notes of bar 17 DUDU, then start the pattern on the 2nd beat. I really like...
