    Re: 2019 Tune-A-Week Project

    Re: Storage: Case vs Hanging on the Wall

    I've been keeping my instruments in their cases since I was 11 years old (except for my drum kit!) and I average a couple of hours a day playing - only thing that interferes with that is extreme...
  6. Re: How did you feel about your new build Mando?

  7. Re: Joining the Girouard club - commissioned a build!

    I'm with Sean on this - I really liked my MTO and had to sell it to help pay for my Girouard but honestly don't miss it at all, it wouldn't get played if I still had it.

    Re: 2019 Tune-A-Week Project

    Difficult to choose a favourite amongst them, but I definitely love the two jigs by the Kane sisters "Three Deer and a Hare" and Pangur Ban" - from the moment I heard those tunes I wanted to learn...

    Re: 2019 Tune-A-Week Project

    I think the thumb movement would be some of my tenor banjo technique overlapping here - it's something I'm actually trying to eliminate from my mandolin playing but it's proving difficult since the...

    Re: 2019 Tune-A-Week Project

    Cheers John - so far been able to keep the pace up - may get a bit more challenging at the end of June as there's a slight chance that I'll be heading home to Ireland for a few weeks. Won't have the...

    Re: practice advice: speed vs repetoire

    I think it's possible to do both - they're not mutually exclusive. I would set aside some tunes that you know really well and that are also a little more straightforward as regards arrangements and...

    Re: Grieving Sally Goodin

    Sorry for your loss Bob - I've felt that pain myself. I also work with dogs (dog trainer) for a living so on a daily basis see what a huge place they have in people's lives, not to mention my own.
