    Re: online jamming?

    It's a great idea if you are connected to the fastest network with the fastest equipment, but realistically the network lag will kill a jam. Real-time streaming of music video and sound is very...

    Re: online jamming?

    Re: Different ways of learning

    While I follow many of the techniques and use the same sources enumerated above, there is a phenomenon that I sometimes experience and I wonder if any of y'all do as well. I sometimes listen to a...

    Re: Different ways of learning

    I need to read about the style I am trying to learn because my brain likes to learn logically. I have tried for YEARS to learn to play by ear, it (so far) has never worked for me. I read music and...

    Re: Different ways of learning

    My learning is generally a combination of ear training, music reading and playing with others. The playing with others gets me hearing pulse and tunes I wouldn't come across playing simply from sheet...

    Re: Long Journey Home/Two Dollar Bill

    Confidently played & sung. I like your nice, easy approach to playing (as contrasted with my caveman grip!).

    Thanks for the tip about Grasstrax as well.

    Re: Different ways of learning

    I agree that my learning is a mix of many approaches. I've become much better at learning by ear, but that's taken me a long time. If I hadn't had the option to learn some basic tunes from sheet...

    Re: Different ways of learning

    Be careful with “no one right way to practice”. While it is true that there are many ways to practice effectively, there are also many ways to practice inefficiently or even counterproductively.

    Re: Different ways of learning

    I've never ever wanted to duplicate note for note much of anything. The way I learn is watching YouTube videos. Since I write and sing, I pay a lot of attention to singers who play guitar well, and...

    Re: Different ways of learning

    To keep things interesting, I take several approaches to learning.

    Of course I learn specific songs to be able to play with others or just to enjoy playing and/or recording on my own. Learning...

    Re: Chris Thile's new pick

    Notice how forward the pick is in his thumb/finger grip. For me it is an optimal position for a loose pick grip.
