    Re: Peghead Nation vs OAIM for ITM Lessons

    Mike, have you tried one or both yet? I'm facing the same decision as you.

    It's not a question of price. Both look like good value. My problem is that I only have time for one course. And that's...

    Re: Help with video conferencing

    Bill, you neither checked whether only free software was meant, nor did you make any concrete suggestion about which commercial products would suit the requirements.

    Re: Help with video conferencing

    This may sound obvious, but what about Skype? People teach music on it, so the sound should be bearable. And video conferencing is possible on Skype now, although I don't know the practicable...

    Re: Some very fine Nancy Blake mandolin

    Absolutely brilliant. But is she playing with her fingers? I can't see a pick in any shot. And why does the audience applaud before the tune is over?
  7. Re: Handel: Sarabande in D Minor (La Folia), mandolin quartet

    I can see what you mean about the second version being bassier. I like both. My slight preference would be for the original, but then I'm listening on earphones too right now. I'm sure you're right...
  8. Re: Handel: Sarabande in D Minor (La Folia), mandolin quartet

    Yes, I enjoyed it very much! This tune is new to me. I like it.
  13. Re: A song of hope... that I needed to hear.

    I like your playing and your voice. Thanks for sharing this with us, and I hope you come out of this crisis healthy and back in gigs and musical employment.
  14. Re: Stefan Sobell mandolins and other instruments

    Congratulations! Does it sound as good as it looks? With a Sobell, perhaps even better?

    I love triplets, but you need to be special to play them as well as these two. So much lift and energy!
