leoroberts: In days of yore when folks did wrong will probably have been Kim Jong Il, now he's dead we've still a wrong 'un - now the despot is Kim Jong Un Jul 10, 2015 6:58:31 GMT
Martin: Anyone into flight sims? I just flew from Edinburgh to Glasgow in a jet aircraft, but sadly crashed into a tree at the side of the runway while landing :( Crazy rock 'n' roll living up here :footloose: Jul 10, 2015 15:38:44 GMT
breedlover: Is that accessible on a laptop Martin? Jul 16, 2015 13:47:45 GMT
Martin: Sure is, Andy. The one I'm playing is MS Flight Simulator X, launched in 2006 (rofl) ....works just fine on a lappy, if you don't overload it with add-ons (there are THOUSANDS of 3rd party enhancements available). Base game is £20 on Steam ;) Jul 17, 2015 11:49:50 GMT *
walkingdecay: Mike Marshall's two DVDs on mando chording are seriously underpriced on Amazon. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mike-MarshallS-Mandolin-Fundamentals-Players/dp/B0012OSGU4/ref=sr_1_19?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1437138023&sr=1-19&keywords=mike+marshall Jul 17, 2015 13:05:59 GMT *
walkingdecay: Can't recommend them highly enough as a regime for keeping up or improving your playing. Get them before Amazon notices. Jul 17, 2015 13:08:39 GMT
walkingdecay: Here's the other one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mike-MarshallS-Mandolin-Fundamentals-Players/dp/B0012OSGUE/ref=sr_1_2?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1437138645&sr=1-2&keywords=mike+marshall+mandolin Jul 17, 2015 13:12:47 GMT
ocarolan: Hi Pete! :thumbup: Jul 18, 2015 9:45:08 GMT
Martin: Thanks for the heads-up Pete! Just ordered both, and it's reminded me to get cracking on with Mike's online course as well! I'll be in touch later ;) Jul 18, 2015 20:20:25 GMT
walkingdecay: Hiya Keith! Jul 20, 2015 16:21:31 GMT
walkingdecay: Martin, the first has some really good "fingerbuster" exercises and a good section on arpeggios, while the second broke me of a lazy habit of playing the same few four note chords with extensions and got me into using triads as alternatives. Good stuff. Jul 20, 2015 16:28:38 GMT
breedlover: Thanks Martin. Sounds like a perfect way of whiling away a more few hours on the laptop for no other reason that pointless fun :) Jul 21, 2015 9:26:25 GMT
Martin: Looking forward to them Pete :thumbup: Jul 21, 2015 12:41:01 GMT
Martin: Andy, it's amazing how engrossing it can be - I did Rome to Naples last night, but accidentally ended up flying via Sardinia :blush: Jul 21, 2015 12:41:40 GMT

Martin: Oh yes, and get a flight stick if you can ;) Jul 22, 2015 14:49:34 GMT *
walkingdecay: Sorry to butt in again, but this week's Humble Bundle contains Flight Sim X. Lot of games for $10. Go to humblebundle.com and check out the weekly deal. It's for charidee, but I don't like to talk about it. Jul 24, 2015 12:52:34 GMT *
Martin: Wish I'd seen that, Pete! I paid £20!! Dang! :D I'll need to keep my eye on that site! Jul 24, 2015 13:32:11 GMT
