    Sherry, that's why you need more mandolins
    Wine's not a bad interim suggestion, though


    BTW, When I need to download from my phone (android) I connect it to my pc (windows) with a usb cable, navigate into the phone like it was a drive, then copy and paste (CTL-C -> CTL-V).

    Today I had a lovely video call with two fellow musicians to try and figure out how to play together remotely on Jamkazam. It was nice just talking to each of them but we came to the conclusion that by the time we figured out the optimum time way to do this the pandemic will be over. On the other hand, we could have been practicing our instruments with the time we spent figuring out the tech.

    As far as your question, Sherry, I assume you need to both multitrack *and* video yourself. One or the other is easy. Both are more difficult but doable if you have the time and patience.

    Actually, Sue, I had planned on upgrading after 5 years of playing. I hit that milestone last May, only to decide I know nothing about buying an instrument. There are tons of posts on this subject in the Forum, of course, but until I can play a variety of mandolins, I think it would be unwise to settle on one. Playing a bunch of (or even a few) instruments is an opportunity I don't readily have. One of these days I'll make a trip to Fiddler's Green or Nashville or Missoula. Until then I'll be content with my little Alvarez A-100. Plan to take it to the luthier today. In the meantime, I'm making tables of content for my sheet music binders. Excel I can handle!

    I hear you. You're alot more disciplined and analytical (not to mention practical) in your approach than I have been, plus I was being a tad facetious .

    If I decided at some point I wanted something that was more of an investment, though, I think I'd want to do the same thing. Maybe someday. I don't have big bux into any of my mandolins, and the luthier I know is 2-1/2 hours away in another state. The other day I was thinking that one of the tuners was having a problem on my Stradolin, and it would probably be springtime before I could make the trip to have it looked at. So it was nice to have a backup.

    BTW, did you get your files transferred? If not, I was thinking it could be your USB cable.

    This may have been suggested already. You can record the audio on your phone and save it as an .mp3. Copy the file to your PC, then play it back through good speakers and record a video on your phone while playing along.

    This won't give great quality sound, but it may be good enough.

    You facetious, Sue? Must be that Billy Jack influence. Lol

    Why don't you visit me in Texas and we can walk to the luthier?

    As to the audio file, I can see the file in my phone on my PC screen, but I'm unable to copy and paste or drag it. I've emailed the file to myself. This afternoon I'll see how that works out.

    Tom, I tried to do that very thing. See my previous response as to how well that worked out. Maybe the problem is the app.

    The microphone with my webcam doesn't work. Would this mic work with it?
