In light of my comment in the Mudcatters are losers thread, I had considered calling this one Guitarists are idiots or Why are guitarists like that?, but decided against it.

I don't think I've seen any threads about this before (unless I've started one in the past, and forgotten - a definite possibility). Here are all of the good instructional mandolin links I've been able to find. Does anyone have any others?

Paul.

Yeeee-haaaah!! I just got a mandolin two weeks ago, and I've been scurrying around trying to find stuff like this. Thank you so much, Paul, for putting these links up. I hope some more folks will do likewise, cause I could use all the help I can get, being a rookie and all.

(P.S. I forgive you your, shall we say, provocatively entitled, thread this morning ... *BG* ... this more than makes up for it!)

Hey Áine.

Glad to help. If you want some really good information, you should join the Comando mailing list (CLICK). There are a lot of folk on there who really know their stuff. You will receive between 20 and 80 emails a day, but after you get used to the various characters and subject lines, you will quickly be able to separate the grain from the chaff. I unsubscribed a few months ago due to an extremely busy schedule: tax season (you won't tell any of the other folkies that I'm an accountant, will you?), first baby on the way (he was born on June 6; now I'm REALLY busy).

Another thing I can't recommend enough is to take some lessons. I had played the guitar for years, then traded it in for a mandolin three years ago. I just pissed around for two years, then started taking lessons in August/99. My improvement has been phenomenal (although I'm still no roaring hell). I stopped taking lessons in February (see reasons above), but now I have a good solid knowledge-base to build on. If you have the time and money, TAKE LESSONS.

If you would like to correspond on mandolin-related topics, send me a personal message, and I'll give you my email address. Even if we're both mando-idiots, we might surprise ourselves with what we can learn from each other.

Paul.

Dear Paul S.,

I do believe I feel a song comin' on ... "I wanna be a mando-idiot, just like my old mother" LOL! Thanks so much for the offer of help, and a PM is on its way to you. I'll check out the Comando list this afternoon. Does this list do a 'digest' format, where they can send you all the messages in one 'bulk' email?

And Congratulations! on the new baby!!! What wonderful news! Give that lil one a big folkie kiss from Auntie Áine, OK?

And I agree that LESSONS would be a great idea. I'm totally self-taught on my guitar (and believe me, I'm no 'great roaring hell' either), so I think I'll find a teacher around here. In the meantime, me and Mel Bay are havin' a lot of fun!

I seriously reccommend lessons too. You get a lot more than you can from a book: an expert (more or less!) to show you what you're doing wrong; live examples of styles etc.; encouragement; and, most importantly, the discipline and incentive to make you work even when you don't feel like it.

TablEdit is worth getting too. It's a brill tablature application with automatic chords, animated fingering, and all sorts of things. There's a free demo version, or you can pay for the full works (50 dollars, I think).

Keep on pluckin'!

Steve

Paul S. - Well, I've signed up for the Comandolist thing. Kinda takes me back a few years ago when I signed onto the 'Cat for the first time -- it'll take me a while to figure out what everyone's talking about, but I'm sure it'll be worth the trouble! And I checked the bulletin board on Mandolin Cafe too, which looks to be a very good place for information. Thanks beaucoups for the links!

L.R. Mole - LOL!

Steve - I've taken a look at TablEdit a couple of times -- now that I've got a personal recommendation, I just might give it a try. Thanks for the tip.

Thanks again everybody for the great advice and help!

Hey everybody! I started a thread called Fiddle Tunes-Help, but I should have added "Mandolin" to the title. I'm trying to find the names of some old country tunes (not Bluegrass) that I have on a tape my father-in-law gave me so I can learn them on my mandolin. If y'all would read the thread, I'd be very grateful.

Thanks! -- Áine
