  2. Re: Long term planning for 1st mandolin and uke GDAE in the meant

    R. F. Charle was a well-respected music store in Paris. It looks like it was taken over by these folks but they do have some older mandolins, not necessarily budget ones.

    I have heard that APC, a...

    Re: Flora MacDonald

    I have music to a Cape Breton/Scottish reel, not jig, called "Flora MacDonald." I'm not set up to send it electronically right now, but if you send me a PM, I could copy and mail it to you. I don't...
  5. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    I never cared much about reading notation, until I started learning things that tabs were not readily available for.
    For example, I got into some Brazillian Choro thanks to Mike Marshall. He tabbed...

    If anyone needs to escape to North Carolina let me know, we are closing on a new house soon and will have some extra space.

    I read a biography of Joni Mitchell. In it, the author said Joan was a speaker at a conference for music and art teachers, with a title along the lines of "Producing the Next Mozart and Van Gogh."...

    Re: MuseScore software

    I use MuseScore and like it a lot. I upgraded to v3 last week and noticed that it doesn't overwrite v2 if you install in a separate folder in Windows so you can run both versions. I upgraded because...
  9. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    Perhaps that's because the guy who plays jazz piano probably begins by relating all the notes--by sound, and not by spelling--to the key. Not by thinking about note names, and memorizing all names of...
  10. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    I’ve been writing a series of lessons on music theory where I attempt to teach the concepts using the piano keyboard, the guitar fretboard, and the mandolin fretboard. I don’t know how successful the...
  11. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    I agree with your sentiments in this post, but this one merits further comment. I don’t find the ability to recognize interval patterns on various instrument fretboards to be limiting at all. Could...
  12. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    What you say re: graphical layout is a valid point, but it merely reveals differences in the graphical layout. Goes to pros & cons, strengths & weaknesses rather than the general triumph of one over...
  13. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    Notation tells you which pitch is to be played, with time value. It does not tell you where the pitch can be found on a fretted instrument. This is often quite a problem for beginners with no prior...

    Re: Octave Mandolin - capo question

    Why you would buy an octave mandolin, then want to make it sound like a mandolin? I do love playing mine capoed at the fifth fret. As Mike says, CGDA.

    Does anyone in your vicinity do artwork, or photo mounting, and use a spray-can based adhesive? In my experience, the overspray from these cans can get lofted easily into the room air and deposited...
