    Re: If you jam . . . .

    Lucas, thanks for pointing that out. A couple of "pros" on the Cafe, as well as a local teacher, have checked my action and all say it's fine. I think my strings are fairly light. I'm aware I press...

    Re: If you jam . . . .

    Sorry. I should have been clear that my question referred to when I have the lead. Otherwise, I can pretty well hear the chord changes and might even guess the correct chord to play.

    Re: If you jam . . . .

    OK, so no one seems to be offended by 2 finger chords. Does the same go for music stands? Honestly, based on a music camp experience a couple of years ago, I just don't see myself memorizing pieces....

    Re: Developing Finger Independence

    I've been slowing some things down a bit and really focusing on that 4th finger, keeping it under control. It's helping a lot, as I can see out of the corner of my eye. My teacher says she can tell...

    Re: Developing Finger Independence

    So any suggestions for keeping 4th finger (pinky) over the fretboard, as opposed to allowing it to do its own thing?

    Peter, your post aroused my curiosity. What do you mean by marking up a piece of music?

    Re: Developing Finger Independence

    Maybe that explains why I struggle so much with 3 finger chords.

    Re: Developing Finger Independence

    Apologies to Brad! As I look over the entire workbook, I see there's one page with some serious notation. Not sure of the context, but will when I get to that point???

    Re: Developing Finger Independence

    Mark, I've enjoyed many of Brad's podcasts. I've downloaded the book and will listen to the podcast. I wish Brad included standard notation in his materials; otherwise, the ones I have are excellent.

    Developing Finger Independence

    My teacher is wanting me to work on strengthening my left hand 3rd finger so it may act independently of both 2nd and 4th fingers. She showed me an exercise where I tap each finger separately,...

    Re: If you jam . . . .

    I just realized how rude this sounds! For those who might care, I'm not that person! I loved playing at the senior center, but decided I needed to cut back on my schedule. By "more sophisticated...

    I do like that 3 finger chords are movable. Forgot about that being a reason to learn them.

    Re: If you jam . . . .

    Thanks for all the input. I asked my question because I can easily play 2 finger chords, but adding another finger is terribly challenging for me.

    The problems I have with 3 finger chords are...

    If you jam . . . .

    If you play in a "friendly" jam, are you put off by mandolinists who primarily play 2 finger chords?

    If Soundcorset does this, I sure don't know how to make it happen. Would be nice, though.

    Sorry, Doug, but I don't understand the question. Just like Excel, it probably has features I should, but don't, use. I only use the metronome feature, with the possibility of using the record...

    Interesting! I found it but it was not on my phone, so I had to install it from Samsung.

    Thanks for the info, Jake.

    Recording App for Android

    Do you know of a good recording app for Android? I'm specifically wanting one where I can include a title, such as name of piece and date recorded.

    Moonlight Sonata

    Is there an arrangement of Moonlight Sonata that would sound good as a mandolin solo?

    I should probably try it before posting, but am curious and can't play right now.
