Hi - I found out about this Self Help Group on another forum - How are things going? Is it still a group for beginners, or have you all progressed on to intermediate level by now? Are you still taking in newcomers? If not I would still like to pop over to a session and listen, and watch, if that would be ok?

Hi Jay,

You're certainly welcome to come along, and do bring your mandolin.

Yes, as you might expect, we have progressed and we now play tunes of varying difficulty some basic, some intermediate - as I've said here before, these sessions have helped my progress immensely. I'm sure we can find a few more basic tunes for you to try, as well as offering some advice.

See you there!

Thanks, Steve, I will look forward to meeting up with you all.

Although I'm reluctant to put myself 'out there', I've realised that if I am going to make any significant process in playing, I need to spend time playing instruments with others, other Mandolin players as well as with people who play other instruments, as well as tlaking to others, listening to how they play, watching thier technique, and so on.

I'm very much the same - uncomfortable playing to strangers. However the atmosphere at the MSHG is very relaxed.. we all make mistakes, but most importantly we all have a lot of fun playing/making them (*).

And yes, interacting with other players is a great way to progress.

Hi Jay,
Yes do come along, as Steve says we do get newcomers come along to see and hear us, and as Steve mentioned, we are playing a bit more at Intermediate level. However I am going to set up a beginners group so do come along and I'll discuss things with you......
Look forward to meeting you....
All the best
