    Re: On-Line Jamming Apps?

    Yes. JamKazam works very well. It requires a WIRED (no WiFi) Internet connection (Ethernet cable), an audio interface, microphone and headphones. Also it requires patience. :)

  2. Re: New to playing Celtic music but I see its big locally

    THANK YOU SO MUCH for that, Jill!! Holy cow! Not only is it great music (as you said) but the list of videos seems to go on endlessly. Hours and hours of really fine Irish trad.

    Re: Kimble A5 into new Collings mandolin case

    My 2006 Kimble A5 fits perfectly in the new Collings case. Very nice fit. The mandolin doesn't move at all inside the case.
