    Re: Reasons to avoid practicing

    I don't need to practice today, with my instrument that is. I am practicing with my mind, working on arpeggios, while I fix the garbage disposal. And the NCIS marathon on the television.

    Part of the happiness was that we could indicate the difficulty of finding resources with our lack of progress, (which was just as likely due to lack of practicing).

    Re: Hand painted mandolins on the Cafe?

    Depending on what you want, it may be an advantage to get someone to artist up your mandolin.
