    Re: Why Mandolin?

    Re: Tiny Moore Tuesday

    I'm sorry I misunderstood your comment, thinking it was not made with the highest admiration of Hayes efforts. Print can sometimes transmit so little information.

    And you're upset some free learning material isn't published? You can always buy a lesson on his site that fits your schedule.
  11. Re: Would anyone be interested in a Blue Chip pick shootout?

    That's a fairly small sample of picks you listed. I have about 30 different ones in front of me and many more in my pick jar. The traveling pick samplers have over 100 different picks.

    Re: Help me narrow down my search

  16. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    Notation tells you which pitch is to be played, with time value. It does not tell you where the pitch can be found on a fretted instrument. This is often quite a problem for beginners with no prior...
