  • Re: Fine Thank You Very Much

    Anyone got an ID for the first tune on track 11 (track is listed here as Gan Ainm/Corey's, and on the album as Traditional Jig/Traditional Reel)? more…

  • Re: Common Fiddle Scales

    Lot of good ideas in this thread. Going to check out the Music Wrench app. more…

  • Re: Hearing fatigue

    I've recently gotten into the habit of wearing some kind of hearing protection when I practice the fiddle. It doesn't have to be anything heavy-duty... just a regular pair of lightweight headphones or earbuds (not connected to anything), and that seems t... more…

  • Re: please help me and fill out this music survey

  • Re: ITM, classical arrangements

    I guess there's some uncertainty about who wrote the song, and whether it's Irish or English, but here's "Lillibullero": more…

  • Re: Virtual session for the tech savvy posters

    The Jamlink looks really interesting, but I'm skeptical of the idea that the latency is "low enough not to matter", as their marketing copy suggests. What I'm reading is that the latency can get down to 6 or 7 ms (if you have two people with fast Interne... more…
