    Re: taking a break at the jam

    OK, Mark, I had some time today. Sorry that my strings are 3 months old so the mando doesn't sound its best. The Monroe break at the end of the video is more advanced, but I thought I'd give you a...

    Re: Reasons to avoid jamming

    Re: Playing Melody in Irish Sessions

    Being able to play up to speed on your own and playing up to speed in a session are two different things I find. Once you add the new variable of other players (and the distraction of other players!)...

    Re: Take on Me

    First of all I apologize for my bad English ...
    I can not hope to sell music through this site by posting videos of guitar ... this is possible, if anything, when I post videos of mandolin.

    Re: About those 48 hour approval periods....

    Once you saw it had more issues than what was palatable to you, you needed to make the decision to return it then and there. That's all the "approval" period does for you. It protects you from buying...

    Re: considering quitting the mandolin

    Hi Kevbuch! In life I've learnt nothing worthwhile comes all that easy!

    Re: Celtic - what should I listen to?

    One hint, since you obviously get rained with good directions already: don't try to do it all at once. Instead, pick one simple tune you like, learn to play it slowly but steadily (your first and...

    Re: Ways to sneak a mandolin in the house ?

    Can I say that threads like these sorta bother me?

    Why does one have to "sneak" one's instrument(s) past a (presumably disapproving) spouse? Shouldn't there be a prior arrangement about what's...
