    Re: Transposing tunes composed for horns

    Learning to play in F Bb Eb etc is a good idea. I have a couple of thoughts.
    First, if you like swing music, Django and Stephane generally played in G C F and
    associated minor keys. There's a lot...

    Re: If You Don't Perform In Public....

    Why do people want anything they desire? Even if you aren't a performer, why not have a high quality mandolin if you can afford it? I think we should allow people to do that. :disbelief:
  9. Pasillo: Campanas by Adolfo Mejia [Trio Colombita]

    This isn't played by a mandolin, but the sound is close.
    Its one of the most beautiful melodies I've ever heard.

    Re: Want to learn Jazz mandolin

    It depends on how traditional you want to play. I'd suggest starting with swing
    music standards and blues from the swing era. If that's the goal, begin listening to
    [and learning] the blues solos...

    Here it is with Hamilton, who does a great job of course.

    This is good. I'd add one thing: find different versions of a tune you know.
    Learn several versions and be able to substitute sections between them.
    The sections can be 2,4,8 bars. This process of...

  19. Re: Chord Tone Scales: Bridge to Practical Application

    Yes, but here's the problem. One can play a song in G and use only the G pentatonic scale. The result IMO are notes which aren't wrong, but don't really highlight the chord changes. Some very famous...
  20. Re: Chord Tone Scales: Bridge to Practical Application

    IMO the practical application would be in creating practice exercises. Using common chord progressions and getting used to the sound of playing chord tone solos through them. Playing notes which best...

    Re: Get Your 4 Year Degree in Bluegrass

    Sure they can. People study various performance arts--dancing, playing music and many others. Entertaining and making a connection with an audience can be taught. Doesn't mean everyone can learn it.
