I am very excited to have gotten in songwriting. It is another option that will keep the demand for the academy even higher. Although it might take several years for people to be able to take full advantage of it. Just like it has been on my list forever to build a mandolin. It just has not been my top priority. It may be a year or two before I can afford or prioritize to take voice, but it’s on my list. I am glad you seperated voice and songwriting by the way. I think it was a good move.
It’s my favorite! I have had a whistle for 6 yrs now…but really only started seriously playing everyday 2 yrs ago. I go to sessions every Sunday here. I’ve had several friends who play Celtic tell me “you’re going to the Dark side”…ha-ha…but I love music especially when it involves group playing and singing/dancing! It’s so rewarding and just plain 'ol fun! Thank you so much for the song list! I will download the music sheets & start more listening on youtube. Hopefully in the next month I will have a dozen or so under my belt! Please let me sit in w/ you all!!!
MAN…I have to sit in on this jam…I just love to here the whistle on celtic tunes.
Oh yeahhhh…I’m so glad you like Celtic tunes, too! I’m playing a crazy 7 hr session tomorrow (because of Monday holiday)…and I can’t wait~
Oh…I am practicing fiddle right now & could NOT resist posting this…everyone check it out!!! So fun~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDZ9PN5K06Q
I have heard that if you are building a mandolin, It will take almost all of your time at the academy.
(If not all of your time) You are the only group that starts on Sunday. Mandolin building
was my second choice, and I sooooo want to take it. I can’t wait to hear your notes after you’ve
My son built a mando last year. he loved the class and want’s to build a octive mando
next time. This year he’s in a mando class to learn how to play it better…
Now, he has changed his magor in collage to music.
I keep trying to place the face and the name. Who was the blonde man with the mustach that helped breakin the new Mandolins at the river along with Steve and Darrell??? He looks so familiar to me, is he a local?
I heard him playing at camp one night and thougt he was really a skilled musician.
I use my RGA song book all the time :thumbsup
I still do not quite understand one thing, don’t laugh, what do you mean when someone says, " In the key of G-3357(or whatever number), what do these numers represent? I know that it is some sort of universal language for bass, mando and others but not sure how it fits for me and my mandolin.
Humm, RGA mandolin players in the river with mustaches… Maybe it was John Moore (guitar/mandolin player for California)? Or Sandy Munro (long-time academy guitar instructor who lives in Aspen)? Those are the 2 that come to mind immediately.
