"Hey ganon, I am working on Volume 2. It is slow going but I am making progress. I am better able to pick out chord changes at jams. Still have a long way to go, but definately making progress!"

"Thank you, Gannon. I will check out ASD. I have quite a number of songs recorded from local jams. Slowing them down would certainly come in handy to help learn versions unique to this area. Sandy River Belle is played in D around these parts, for…"

Hi Lora, welcome to the Ear Learning group. Has been quiet here for a while, but I think an important subject that is not well addressed on the 'other site'. Specifically, I'd like to find guidance for how older people can actively improve their 'analytical' hearing. Seems many of those that are good at it assume that it just happens 'organically' with enough exposure - I'm not so sure.

Bob Mesher replied to Bob Cron's discussion Norman's Preferences
"All I remember was when he had a Martin with flush frets on it (i.e. just markers for a guitar that was designed for slide only) and he had it converted for flat picking. "
