  1. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    In my opinion...Learning to play by ear is much more musical than learning by notation or tabs. It means you can hum or sing the music and have memorized it. This a far more direct process than using...
  2. Re: Practicing the swing feel for Irish music

    I think the key is to slow recordings of music down to where you can play the rhythmic feel. Gradually increase it to whatever speed you like. Pick a few favorites and play along to get them as exact...

    Re: 5 string in jazz combo question

    This may be true if the electric mandolin can phrase in the style, playing solos in a linear way. I don't think this is true playing chordal rhythm. IMO "tuned in 5ths" can be very "white bread"...

    Re: Picking technique on electric mandolin?

    Definitely. I don't play above the 12th fret on my electric mandolins because it doesn't sound good through an amp. [Generally avoid the E string up there too.] With more frets, it pushes the pickup...

    Re: Learning Song Variations?

    Create fills on half or whole notes. For example, play an eighth note on the melody
    note for "grace". Add 8th notes and 8th note rests so you fill the space naturally
    between "grace" and "how"....

    Re: Still cant play a break!

    Does playing a break mean improvising or playing a melody with some variation from the
    tune? Both are valid, and you can always create your own variation. Try doing it for your
    favorite song. One...

  10. Re: What do you do when you're Just. Not. Feeling it?

    Yes. Makes a lot of sense. Slow it down to where you have complete control over the notes and timing. Then gradually increase it to the speed where it sounds best.

    Re: No motivation

    It sounds like you miss the social aspect of music. I think most people do, especially
    if they perform. Its a situation where you can only do part of the total experience. I've been working on...

    Nothing wrong with working up a solo and playing it. Even better is to practice so you have the ability to depart and "spontaneously amend" the notes. Keeping the original solo as something you can...
