    Re: 2019 Tune-A-Week Project

    Week 25 for the Tune A Week Project - a lovely four part jig called "Kit O'Mahoney's", but I only played it once through because I wasn't quite confident of getting through all four parts again...
  3. Re: Stolen - Weber Fern A-style - Oakland, CA

    Sorry to hear this - break-ins suck! If you're not already doing so, make sure to post this in the classifieds as well under the "Lost and Stolen instruments" section. If the thieves don't really...

    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...
  9. Re: How did you feel about your new build Mando?

    I've had my Girouard for about six months now - I loved it when it arrived and I love it even more now. Everything about it is awesome - there isn't a single thing that would make me wish "If...
  10. 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

    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...
