    Re: Faraway Grandchild

    You’re breaking my heart, Bren! Just beautiful! Is that tune available on paper?

    I haven’t seen my two grandsons in two weeks, except on FaceTime. They are 3 and 1, probably the most fun ages....

    Re: Help - Right hand wrist speed question

    I just read through this whole thread. I only understood about half—or maybe an 1/8th of it. Or was it 1/16th?

    But, thanks, Simon. I guess you were serious. So, you’re just playing beats for each...

    Can’t disagree with that, Bill, but if you sound good on an Eastman, you’ll sound better on a Loar...or a Collings, or whatever.

    This will be an open ended conversation. I won’t go through my own...

    Same here, actually. Adding the capo has no downside. Just assistance.

    Useful Tip For Changing Strings

    If you are like me (and I know I am), changing strings on your mandolin is not your favorite task. Iíve been doing it successfully for 40 years, or so, but I often wish I had a third hand (one that...

    To A Higher Standard

    Not quite sure where this thread should go, but this seems like a good choice.

    My youngest son played percussion in his high school band (and later graduated from Berklee College of Music). At one...

    Re: Natural talent vs practice

    Now that I think about it, I bet that the more natural talent one has, the more they want to practice. If I acquired a sudden burst of talent, I don’t think I could put my mandolin down. Even now, if...

    Re: Natural talent vs practice

    I have “some” natural talent. I think it usually takes some to keep someone at it, but I’m 71 and I’m positive that all the practice I’ve done (a LOT) hasn’t made me 10% as good as Sierra Hull (or...

    Re: Online percussive dance tutorials?

    I agree about that “Squirrel Hunters” video. That thing ROCKS! Is it even possible to get that kind of a groove with a mandolin? That mandolin player didn’t take a break.

    Thanks for the info, Jack. I guess a French/Irish group is no more unlikely than an American/Irish one.

    Sometimes You Do Get What You Want

    I’ve been a Cafe member for a long time, but I’ve been away from it—and playing music—for the past 8 or 9 years. (When I left, I think Jim Garber only had 10,000 posts!) Stuff happens....
