"Thanks! Looking forward to continuing the journey. Been working on learning by ear more recently, but nothing structured. I have found learning tunes by ear to be easier on mandolin than guitar, but I suspect I mentally convinced myself of that…"
This group is for those interested in learning to play what they hear. All levels welcome - hope the advanced can help the beginners. TAB'ers are welcome too, whether looking to change their ways or simply interested in the discussions.
Guess you're not at kamp either! Hoping to make it next year...and drag Mark Thatcher along too. I'd be interested in the tune of the month. I'd like to start playing some of the sessions around here (yes, there…"
Haven't heard of a vol II. I asked Adam one time (at Kaufman Kamp) why he did it that way for Ragtime Annie and he said he judged that there was no real benefit in terms of making it easier to go to the capo…"
"Cool website - thanks for doing that. I will also jump on the Adam Granger book (and CD's). I call it my flatpicking "bible" (ask Mark T.). So many great tunes all in one place - I actually have two copies because the first one got so…"

Hey Dan, it's nice to know that others are checking out our tunes. I checked out your page and enjoyed the tunes you posted too. I hope that part of the network continues to grow. Keep in touch - I'll let you know when I add more stuff to my page. Gary
My office is still in Pulaski and I'm there a couple of times a month. Last month I actually moved from California back to Virginia, but I live in the northern Virginia area and commute down to the office in Pulaski a few times a month to help out down there. So I look forward to your move to the Blacksburg/Radford area. We need to get together and pick!
Hi, Dan, Oh, great! Just Great! ..more competition for the guitar contests moving this way! :) I'll hold open a pickin' chair and there should be a few tunes left to play, by the time you arrive! :) Just finished putting out a music fire, someone called desparate for Def Leopard, Hysteria, guitar tabs, and would you believe, ha, it was the pastor from the local church? So funny!
Hi Dan. What you are hearing is a recorded rhythm track with a click track. The camera that I am using to make the video is emphasizing the click track and de-emphasizing the rhythm. I record rhythm tracks for songs I'm learning at different speeds. I've found that it's better for me to use one track as a dedicated click track, then when all my tracks are finished I just leave it out of the mix. What you were hearing is one of my practice tracks @ 220 bpm. I was just playing it back on Windows Media Player. I'll post some backup tracks if you want. See if you like them. Later, Gary
"Thanks Mike. I have to prove to myself that I can play the material as written but once I've done that I start to allow myself some leeway to have fun and drop in my own bits. There's not too much space to do that in SK's version of…"
