    Re: If you jam . . . .

    Just a moment. Most of the songs and tunes one will face in a jam have only two orthree chords. The root, the 4th(IV), and the 5th(V). Hundreds of songs/tunes. IOW, if you know the key, the first...

  4. Re: What Do You Use for Editing Standard Notation

    I like Finale too. Never really worked with anything similar. I like once one declares a time signature, it won't let you cheat. Don't know if any other apps work like this?

  10. Re: Learn to play multiple instruments at once?

    I learned mandolin and fiddle pretty much at tthe same time. Tuning is the same, but a bow is not a pick. Fiddle technique is a bit demanding, so it sadly dominated. Banjer and guitar are departures...

    Re: How to build a solo?

    Yes indeed, play the melody.
    The melody could be within the chord tones. You can find it from notation as well. It takes a bit, but if you can play what you hum, and vise versa, you'll be ready...
