    Re: Recording App for Android

    It seems like I'm answering my own posts these days. Once again my teacher came through. The app I use for a metronome also has a recorder, which I knew. There's a tiny little pencil in the upper...

    Re: Sheet Music w/Lyrics and Chords

    No one responded to my post, so I asked my teacher for a recommendation. Why didn't I start there? Because she's a classical violinist and I figured she wouldn't have a clue. Seems I was wrong! ...

    Re: I Hate Playing Chords

    Steve, I do understand moveable chords. In fact, a teacher in my area has had me playing a barre A chord, along with D and E with the same shape. I detest that barre A. I get no D string sound at...

    You caught me, Phil! Seriously, my cellphone battery wasn't staying charged. The guy at the Verizon store said I should be cleaning out my history: phone calls, websites, etc. every day. Still...

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    Thanks, Louise! I've enjoyed reading over all the responses to my post, but you really hit the nail on the head for me! Maybe you and I are the only ones in the Café who don't memorize and/or play...

    Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    4 years into learning mandolin (my first instrument), my mode of learning doesn't include tune memorization, but, rather is solely involved with reading sheet music. Do others learn this way...

    Re: What's on the grill for the 4th?

    Ribs - on Saturday. Invited friends over to play Hand and Foot - with partners. But when I went over the number of people we'd asked, I came up with 7. Now I understand why my mandolin teacher...

    Re: Musician Jokes

    My husband says none of these banjo jokes are funny. Then he asked me: what do you call a mandolinist with a warped mind?

    A banjo.

    Re: Any arguments AGAINST MAS?

    Good question. My teacher taught my son violin from 2nd through 10th grade. Over that time she and I became really good friends, and when I mentioned I was considering learning to play mandolin 4...

    Re: Any arguments AGAINST MAS?

    There's not really a question, here, but I'll respond anyway. Yes, I believe my teacher may own only one violin. It's a very high dollar instrument, I'm sure. Among other professional...

    Re: 3/2 Time Pick Direction

    The arrangement I have is by Matt Merker - and the time signature keeps shifting, as you have said, JL. My teacher (who is a classical violinist, not a mandolinist) had me change all the 3/2s to...

    Re: Easiest keys? major/minor

    My teacher says G and D major are the easiest. I'm working on C major, which she says is one of the most difficult. Not sure if she is referring to major keys or all keys.

    Thanks to a MC member, last May I saw Andy on a trip to New York City. His group plays regularly at a synagogue (in Brooklyn, I believe). There's no charge, but a donation (of $20, I believe) is...

    Too often I forget about Google! I like what Mark sent and will check it out from my desktop.

    Simon, have you tried the Violin Cards app? Maybe it would provide what you're looking for.
