    Re: How to remember tunes?

    I agree with a lot of the suggestions here. I think it's best to internalize the piece first, then learn how to play it on your instrument. A book I have, "The Musician's Way" suggests using a piano...

    Re: Live from Here is no more

    I was hoping to finally attend one of the “Christmas” shows this year, and was hoping for a return to Tanglewood.
  5. Re: APM cancels Live From Here amid other layoffs and cuts

    LFH was really starting to push for donations directly to the show from listeners, at least in their email newsletters and in the youtube chat each week, which I did. They had just started up a fan...
  6. Re: APM cancels Live From Here amid other layoffs and cuts

    As I said in the other thread, almost everything about my current musical life can be traced back to Chris taking over PHC/LFH. Sad about this.

    Ugh... just saw the post from Thile on twitter and came here.... Very sad about this. Thile and Live from Here/Prairie Home Companion made me love music again after feeling burned out for while....
  8. Re: How to approach practicing and improvement?

    Check out the book The Musician's Way by Gerald Klickstein (Amazon link). For me it had great advice on structuring practice and how to approach learning difficult pieces. Applicable to any...

  10. Re: Celebrating The Mandolin Pickers Guide to Bluegrass Improvisa

    After playing the guitar for 30 years, I decided to take up the mandolin a few months ago. I got a bunch of mandolin books from the library, but The Mandolin Pickers Guide to Bluegrass Improvisation...

    I asked Jake on Instagram and he said the plan right now is for guitar only, though he may decide to add mandolin and banjo parts later.

    Re: Jake Workman, new album Landmark

    I don’t know which instruments will be included, and unfortunately I can’t find where Jake mentioned it.

    It's a great album - I also saw via Jake's Instagram that a book of transcriptions is in the works.
  15. Re: Going out of the country...personal item/carry-on?

    Just an update on this - I had no trouble flying Southwest with the Rover travel guitar.
  16. Re: Going out of the country...personal item/carry-on?

    I don’t want to fly with my Eastman either. What Rogue do y’all recommend for a knock around traveling mandolin?
  17. Re: Going out of the country...personal item/carry-on?

    I’m about to fly with a carry-on Washburn Rover guitar in a big bag for the first time. It’s longer than the typical carry-on rules would allow but the airline specifically allows small instruments...

    For you guitar players out there: Is there a site similar to this one but for guitar? With news, discussion, learning resources? What are your favorite guitar sites?
  20. Re: A newbie player looking for an affordable entry level mandoli

    I was in this boat earlier this year - a guitar player for 30 years - also thinking I'd by a sub-$200 mandolin, and after reading and researching, came to the same conclusions that people are saying...

    Re: Picked up a fiddle recently..

    My sister-in-law has a fiddle. Now that I can play a bit of mandolin, I'm excited to try it out. I'm sure I'll be terrible at it.
