    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    I'm a new subscriber to Peghead and the Beginner Course. I've picked up several techniques already that I'll put into practice. Looking forward to continuing. After this, and possibly the...

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    As far as subscriptions go, I recommend ArtistWorks lessons. I love the platform how you can send in a video and the teacher will personally get back to you with a response. If you’re also looking...

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    I really enjoyed my time with Peghead - I found myself switching instructors every 3 or 4 weeks and thus in a couple months I went through the instructors and lessons I was most interested in and had...

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    I did PegHead nation a while back for Chad's Music Theory for Instruments Tuned in Fifths course - I'm not one to enjoy a video of someone teaching me note by note how to play a song, so none of the...

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    I really hate artistworks.

    Mike Marshall is great. I'm sure all their instructors are great. The software is slow and clunky. If there is ever an issue it will break in their favor. I signed...

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    I would love to use a one-on-one instructor, but unfortunately our family's schedule is very busy right now. It's almost impossible to lock down a regular time, especially if that instructor is...

    I am currently using 4 different online mando sites: ArtistWorks with Mike Marshall, Peghead Nation with Joe K Walsh, Soundslice with Don Stiernberg and taking Matt Flinner's current swing course.

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    Peghead does let you switch your course twice a month. I wish it were like Truefire.com where you pay $29 a month, but you have full access to EVERY course on the entire site!

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    Matt Flinner's courses are wonderful. Different approach from Peghead etc., but very well executed and worth every dime. Plus past courses are very reasonably priced and you can get them a la cart.

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    I'll give a +1 for Peghead Nation. I have been subscribed to Sharon's Intermediate Bluegrass course for a few months. I really like having the video so I can see what she's doing, plus she gives a...

    Another vote for Matt Flinner. I find the structure of his courses suit my learning style. Each course (videos, charts and mp3) can be downloaded and saved. I’m still referring to past material. He...

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    My two cents. I used Peghead Nation (the beginner bluegrass mando course) for several months. It did help me but I felt that the cost was a bit high for what I was getting. Once I learned the song...

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    I'd also like to know the answer to that. It looks to me that you pay for each course separately on Peghead.

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    Peghead Nation is awesome. They let you switch course up to twice a month, so I pay for one course and browse around a little. I have no experience with Artist Works, so can't compare with that. I...

    I've used Artistworks and Peghead. I like Peghead quite a bit. Accessible. Notation/tab with most stuff. You can switch back and forth between instructors at will. Versatile. The lessons are well...

    Re: Subscription Tutorial Sites

    As a "mandolin omnivore" crossing several styles, I really enjoy PegHead. Am a fan of Joe K. Walsh's teaching, but I guess it depend in part what level you are, and what you hope to learn. The...

    A while ago I was reading a interview with a former Weber employee and he stated that the Bighorn was consistently their best sounding mandolin (or at least it was his favorite). I've only heard...

    If I hadn't just bought a Weber Yellowstone 2-pt which I am still very much in love with, I would be all over that Bighorn. In fact, I am sorry to know about it. Just go away. I don't NEED that...

    If you are a reader, I'd say there is no need for you to start using tabs. Tabs are to show non-readers where to put their fingers to get the notes, and from what you say you already are quite...
