    Re: Harmonized scales

    I sure do Niles! Any serious improvisor has spent a lot of time on scales. BUT not just straight up and down, doing them in MANY patterns. You see the notes of the scale better in your mind if you...
  2. Re: Ricky & Marty Play Bill's Mandolin on "Big Night"

    I've gotta say my highlight was Carlene and Marty at the end too. Will The Circle Be Unbroken has been the closing song of so many bluegrass festivals and events in my life - hearing those two play...
  3. Re: Breaking down "the old home place" mando break

    First time I saw these, Wayne really brings the concept to life from the perspective of an actual "learner", as opposed to an accomplished player, which is a refreshing change. His real world...

  7. Re: Anybody going/been to Alan Bibey Mandolin Camp?

    To complete a triumvirate of the usual AB Camp suspects on this forum, I too will be a returning 5th-year attendee. Wary? You bet, but Bibey has as good a plan for safety as can be had at the moment,...
  8. Re: Anybody going/been to Alan Bibey Mandolin Camp?

    Like AlanN, I have been to every year of AB Camp so far.

    Re: Question for Experienced Players

    I agree with you about speed, and yes, bluegrass players who can show speed usually do. It is
