FOUR YEARS! 7 years 2 months ago #8074

WOW! I've been playing the mandolin for 5 years? Doesn't seem like it.... but time flies when you are having fun...right?
Godbless, I really like my mando! and all the memories it brings me but I must confess the fiddle is right behind....so challenging and soooooo much fun too.....and sooooo unforgiving..... :lol:

Indeed. The fiddle is a cruel task master. The technical idiosyncrasies make you almost loathe it, yet it just makes you want to spend more time practicing! It's somehow addicting....It's a happy captivity.... :) And it does get easier (though some days are better than others).
You're doing great with the Bach Double by the way (are you in book 4 or just learning the part for the concert? I've been waiting to see a graduation recital ;)). It's odd to think of how many people there are in that ensemble that I remember when they started taking lessons! It's awesome to see how everyone is growing (the kids physically, and the adults musically). I can wait to see where everyone (myself included) ends up going with it.

What are you saying? :blink:

:) But kudos. Book 4 is fun. Book 5 is fun, too. Book 6 is fun once you get out of the technique induced depression.....
