Re: Good sources for music when learning
I'll go along with Jeff's advice. The one thing i'll add,is don't be afraid of 'trying to pick fast'. I'm self taught,didn't know of another player within a 100 miles of me & had (still haven't) no tuition books. I did buy the tuition DVD by Chris Thile,the only one they had in the store,simply for the info.on it ie. - how to hold the pick,wrist action etc.. I did as Jeff suggests & listened to all the Bluegrass Mandolin stuff i'd got on recordings & worked a few of them out by ear. I also ripped them onto my PC as 'pick along' tunes.Those tunes & I'net Radio stations,have been my sole source of music to pick along to.You just have to try to play it fast to keep up.Believe me,it will come. As in all things,it's practice,practice ........,
