Long Haired David Posted February 1, 2011 Share Posted February 1, 2011 Hi there. I have been messing around with my concertina for about 18 months but have been practising seriously since Christmas and I think that I am progressing quite well. I have gathered quite a lot of simple music by downloading pdfs from the internet and have been buying simple mandolin books etc that have tunes in C/G. However, I have a question. When practising, I am doing three things: 1. I am running through the books playing a variety of tunes that I know from my folk guitar days 2. Trying out tunes that I don't know by finding them on Youtube and then playing from the music 3. Concetrating on a small number of tunes that I am trying to 'perfect' Now, the question. Am I better off leaving out (or heavily cutting down on) 1 above and building a small repertoire of tunes that I can play well or should I continue playing lots of tunes 'adequately' to exercise my reading and fingerwork? I have to say that my wife is getting sick of 'Mairi's Wedding'!!!! David Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
