    Re: Neapolitan Serenades

    Maybe they occasionally have performances where they would need your level of maturity Jim. It’d probably be worth it for them to fly you in. And you’d be happy to play all night and eat lots of...

  5. Re: Balancing practice between two instruments...

    I’ve played the guitar for years and years, mandolin for three or four, but badly.
    Then I bought the Octave two months ago, and am determined to really master the instrument.
    So I play it almost...
  6. Re: Best app for generating natural-sounding guitar rhythm tracks

    Chordbot is actually not so bad, it’s free and again it takes a bit to tweek it to play reasonable guitar-like chords and alternating bass. But you can get there, in the end.

    Re: How Much Better Does It Get

    Playability is a funny one because you can set up even a Rogue to play well.
    The Eastman MD 305 is a nice one. Can you post a couple of simple tunes to the Song a Week Social Group?

    Re: New mandolin for an old man

    Yes, congratulations, more music is always a good decision! :)

    Atlanta?
    Isn’t that where... oh no, we’re not going to see a whole load of Disney film remakes with everyone from Tom and Jerry to Cinderella playing Gibson mandolins?

    Re: Tab of Fifths

    Thanks mmuussiiccaall

    Re: Ceccherini photos

    I have this problem too, usually I can only see maybe half of the vids on tune a week, a lot of the tunes that are older than about 2017 are seen as blanc (white) space.

    I’ve grown used to, Tack - a - meenie.

    Re: Loud, or Not So Loud?

    9pm for me. I have my neighbor’s schedule worked out, and I play rather than practice when others are around. No repetitive exercises for example.
