    Re: Disappointment

    Disappointment with the dollars still in your pocket is better than disappointment without. You read the writing on the wall. You did right.

    Re: If You Don't Perform In Public....

    Music is more enjoyable if you play together with others. That counts as "public" for me.

    And some who play alone in a room play in public anyway because the walls are too thin. Musical quality...

    Ok, now you've got me wondering what your original guess was??[/QUOTE]

    Yeah, I am wondering about that, too. It cannot be worse than the bridge you already told us about. Don't be shy.

    Public performance has got nothing to do with it. Audiences are not staffed with instrument experts, so you can take your laminated cheapo to Carnegie Hall and raise everybody out of their seats with...

    Re: General Mandolin Post

    Interesting story. In all those years I played a TB it never occurred to me to tune the head :disbelief: since it would be out of harmony with the majority of notes I played anyway. Talking about...

    Re: General Mandolin Post

    There is no need to feel driven into perfectionism just because others talk about it.

    However, if the feeling arises anyway, it might originate from something else missing or not good enough in...

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    Two disjointed parts of memory involved here: music goes into procedural memory, words go into declarative memory. The same person can be good at memorizing one and bad at memorizing the other. This...

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?
