    Hi John – I am so glad that you posted this lesson.  It’s definitely a tune I want to be able to play.  You must have read my mind!

    Question:  How do I download the MP3s with my iPad?  I don’t have a “right click”.  – n

    How do you bring up a drop-down menu? Should be able to use the same procedure.

    Here are some suggestions for Nancy:

    Get a DropBox account (FREE)

    https://www.dropbox.com

    Whence Dropbox is installed and setup, navigate to the mp3 file, tap and hold the link and a pop up will display list of options, including save to Dropbox.

    Another method is to install iCab mobile:

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/icab-mobile-web-browser/id308111628?mt=8

    iCab mobile will let you download mp3 files directly onto your iPad and store them there. Additionally, you can play back mp3 files within iCab.

    Further, iCab offers Dropbox integration, which brings us back to the top.

    Very impressive playing Arwen!

    Maybe someday I’ll play like that 🙂 years from now!

    I thought you all would enjoy this video of Arwen fiddling live this past Thursday morning. She arranged “Bluegrass in the Backwoods” and “Czardas” into a medley. I included her “Fiddler’s Dream” medley as well.

    This was a special St. Patrick’s day luncheon honoring the seniors in Catawba County, and entertainment was provided by the Cockman Family grandkids. All the ones you see at the front tables are over 90 years old!

    She sounds even better everytime I hear her!  I’m convinced y’all stuck a fiddle in her hands before she even learned to burp!🤣

    Go Arwen!!! That is great playing. Is she still taking classical lessons too?  Was it hard to keep up with her on the drum box? Ha

    Great job by both of your girls.  Looks like brother Ben is doing well. So glad for that.

    John,

    The two jam tracks for BGITB:  MP#2 and MP#3 are not linking with the appropriate backing track.

    Instead when right-clicking and Saving Link, it comes up with “Silver Spear” on both.

    Perhaps you can check this minor glitch?

    Thanks.

    John

    John, thanks for letting me know about that. I fixed the links and also added some slower speeds.
