  1. Re: Gender and age distribution of mando players

    For a little extra data, I looked at the last 50+ video exchanges on Mike Marshall's ArtistWorks site. The female student percentage was roughly 40%. Closer to 50% recently. Ages ranged from kids to...

    Re: Northfield is simply nailing it lately

    I will say that prior to last summer I was a bit more skeptical (and uneducated) on Northfield.
    After going to Swannanoa Gathering and spending several hours talking to Adrian, I was sold on it....
  6. Re: Mike Marshall's Virtual Mandolin Orchestra

    It was great fun to participate in, as is Mike's class anyway! Martin did a fantastic job putting it all together.

  10. Re: Jazz Mandolin Appetizers -- original tune names

    I bought this before I knew a thing about playing jazz/swing. It was helpful but a little over my head at the time. Now that I know one or two things about playing it I need to go back to it.

    Sherry, you might try out an online teacher that can see what you're struggling with and help out.

    Re: I Hate Playing Chords

    Sorry, don't have a tab but this video might help a little bit at least to grab a few positions he's using. It's very E major scale based.

    Re: Conference Call Jam Session !!

    I've joined in on a couple of Matt Flinner's Zoom jams and they are a fun escape from cabin fever. Everyone is muted but Matt and he sings and alternates playing breaks and rhythm for you. A great...
