    Re: only been playing a short while

    Good advice from Fred. I'll add that the mandolin will require more noting accuracy than the guitar due to the closer fret spacing and string spacing. Common sense really, but it took me a while to...

    Re: Astroturf Noise

    Sorry, but definitely not for me. My musical mind runs on a more simplistic path. If I can't grasp the melody, the timing, etc it just doesn't click with me. It would be interesting to know the...

    Re: Workshop Topics Suggestions

    Wouldn't hurt to mention some basic music theory. Time signatures, major vs minor, what playing in a key means. I'd keep that very brief but it is beneficial to know there is some basic language...

  14. Re: Tips on getting more volume out of a 3 week old Mando?

    Agree with Jim Garber above. Playing and practicing with proper tone will be more beneficial than banging away for more volume. If it's volume you want amplify it with a pick up, mic or whatever. ...
