Thread Name: I'll never learn mandolin because....
Subject: RE: I'll Never Learn Mandolin Because.....
Bedub, another less technical suggestion (for those of us unversed in MIDI lore) is to put on tape (either yourself, or utilize your favorite guitarist) a WHOLE bunch of breaks in a row. Just the backup for the same tune over and over and over and over...:) Hope you can find a guitar player who's nice enough to do this for you. If you know a couple chords and can strum, you can do this yourself. I am a fiddle player and while I like the sound of my instrument, I really needed the practice of having to keep up with someone else...even though it was a recording. Actually, I found that keeping up with the recording made it a LOT easier to play with real musicians...real people can skip ahead and cover your mistakes for you. :)
