    Re: Can't Find a Post!

    You caught me, Phil! Seriously, my cellphone battery wasn't staying charged. The guy at the Verizon store said I should be cleaning out my history: phone calls, websites, etc. every day. Still...

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    Thanks, Louise! I've enjoyed reading over all the responses to my post, but you really hit the nail on the head for me! Maybe you and I are the only ones in the Café who don't memorize and/or play...

    Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    4 years into learning mandolin (my first instrument), my mode of learning doesn't include tune memorization, but, rather is solely involved with reading sheet music. Do others learn this way...

    Re: What's on the grill for the 4th?

    Ribs - on Saturday. Invited friends over to play Hand and Foot - with partners. But when I went over the number of people we'd asked, I came up with 7. Now I understand why my mandolin teacher...

    Re: Musician Jokes

    My husband says none of these banjo jokes are funny. Then he asked me: what do you call a mandolinist with a warped mind?

    Re: Any arguments AGAINST MAS?

    Re: 3/2 Time Pick Direction

    The arrangement I have is by Matt Merker - and the time signature keeps shifting, as you have said, JL. My teacher (who is a classical violinist, not a mandolinist) had me change all the 3/2s to...

    Re: Easiest keys? major/minor

    My teacher says G and D major are the easiest. I'm working on C major, which she says is one of the most difficult. Not sure if she is referring to major keys or all keys.

    Thanks to a MC member, last May I saw Andy on a trip to New York City. His group plays regularly at a synagogue (in Brooklyn, I believe). There's no charge, but a donation (of $20, I believe) is...

    Re: Fingerboard Diagram

    Too often I forget about Google! I like what Mark sent and will check it out from my desktop.

    Simon, have you tried the Violin Cards app? Maybe it would provide what you're looking for.
