tunebook 48 tunes.

Australian born. Lived most of my life in the remote parts of the country. Very amateur mandolin player. Been interested in music all my life, but had little opportunity to learn due to study and then work commitments. Decided on mandolin as it was easily portable and had frets that let me learn where to put my fingers to get the required note. Live and work some 500km from the nearest major town and so I use tune books with musical notation to learn tunes. I enjoy the songs of Ireland and Scotland and try make my playing fit the music I hear in my head. Have a good teacher, but can only rarely access him when visiting the city
