Thanks Mike, the Physical Therapy really helped. I’m still only about 95%, there’s a dull ache that just won’t go away, but it’s not preventing me from playing. I have been listening to Jay Ungar on Youtube and trying to find the notes on the mandolin, and have the first part done, but bits of the second section still elude me.
Rick, those tunes are on my list too. I’ve been playing both on guitar for years. I need to add more vocal numbers because I’m getting ready to search for a new BG jam to join. I had been doing one near where I work before my elbow flared up, but it was getting stale and there were just too many players playing way too loudly.
I’m also debating whether to attend a Mandolin Camp this spring:
I actually attended it 3 years ago, with just 6 months of mandolin under my belt. It’s too much, too fast, and an awful lot of money for just 2.5 days, but the lineup is pretty astounding, as it was 3 years ago.
