Thanks, Sam. I look forward to getting back at the videos but I’ve been suffering an almost intolerable toothache for the last couple of days and can’t get into the dentist until Monday afternoon. I’ve been trying to think of different ways to take Tylenol and Motrin. Perhaps I could melt them in my tomato soup or grind them up in my tuna fish….? lolMay 16, 2020 at 8:31 PM #84298
Sam, I’m long-winded and just full of tales to tell…lol…my husband is always telling me I’m typing too much and will wear everybody out with my long posts…I know he’s right, but it’s just hard for me to stop…just ignore all that writin’ I do…lol. You’ll be better off.
Fred…ouch…is it swollen around the tooth? Man, I have had some really bad toothaches and we didn’t have dental insurance or money either one…had some abscesses that did their own root canal…by calcifying over the roots…by the time I had the money saved up for the dentist they were like…well…you’ve done your own root canal…lol…which isn’t recommended…but … yeah…ugh…ouch. My whole face would swell up with that. I know how that hurts…sorry you’re dealing with it.
But hang on…Monday’s comin’! I hope they can fix it all up for you quick and easy!

Thanks, Peggy. I’m tougher than a boiled owl so I’ll pull (no pun intended) through. lolMay 17, 2020 at 11:48 AM #84308rodgerParticipant
Well Fred, it looks like you’re going to put me back in school. I thought I was done with my school days, but I guess when it comes to theory I’ll be agonizing with it when I can’t remember if I found a rope or lost my horse.
We were given a really good arpeggio exercise a couple years ago in fiddle camp, and I’ve been planning on passing it along on the forum, but being the world champion procrastinator I still haven’t got it done. I see you can find motivation to get things done. Maybe we need a lesson on that too.May 17, 2020 at 11:52 AM #84309
Thanks, Rodger. It would be nice to see/hear your arpeggio exercises. I’m sure all the folks here on the forum would agree. Have a great day. 🙂May 19, 2020 at 4:07 PM #84351
I’m starting to get back to working on Part 2 now. It’s going to include the following topics: Notes and Rests and their Values; The Color and Leading Tones; Understanding Relative Minors; Understanding Major Scale Properties; Minor Scales; Flats and Sharps as Key Signatures; Tonic, Subdominant and Dominant Chords; 1st Inversion and 2nd Inversion Chords; Common Tones; and Excerpts from the Partial Series.
Should be fun…….:)May 19, 2020 at 6:43 PM #84352
That sounds like a real handful…looking forward to lesson number two!May 19, 2020 at 9:43 PM #84353BeardogParticipant
Sounds like it will need to be a rather long video to include all that! But I bet you can do it!May 20, 2020 at 12:26 PM #84365
Thanks Peggy and Sam. It looks as though this project will be on hold for a while.
My wife’s mother who is age 95 (96 in August) has had a heart attack and fallen, breaking an ankle in several places, having another heart attack and then a stroke. Talk about bad luck. This wonderful woman has led a beautiful life pretty much free from pain (other than giving birth a few times). She broke a hip at 94 and fully recovered! But this time it’s different. 🙁
Mary and I will be closing up this place here in Arkansas and heading to New York to be available for her and our respective families. We’ll be away approximately 6-7 weeks. We plan to stop in Tennessee on the return trip so as to see our many friends there and we’ll stay a week or ten days before returning to AR.
I will bring my tablet, but all the music notations and printers, etc will remain here. I’m not even bringing instruments as my friends have plenty that I can play when I visit them.
I’ll still be here for a few more days as we prepare to leave. And I’ll check in from time to time with my tablet.May 20, 2020 at 1:48 PM #84366rodgerParticipant
Pray for God’s blessing on your support there Fred. I’m sure you’ll be a blessing….May 20, 2020 at 2:11 PM #84369
Thank You very much, Rodger. 🙂May 20, 2020 at 2:45 PM #84370BeardogParticipant
Sorry to hear, Fred. My thoughts will be with you and your wife’s family.May 20, 2020 at 3:10 PM #84371
Thanks, Sam. I really appreciate that. 🙂June 7, 2020 at 6:28 AM #84689
Oh gosh, I didn’t see this, Fred, because the board isn’t acting right for me and I can’t find discussions going on. I’m so sorry to hear of your MIL’s difficulties.
Hoping you guys will have a safe trip and her recovery will be good and easy for her.
Keepin’ y’all in my prayers. Take it easy on yourselves and I’m hoping for all the best.June 18, 2020 at 10:03 PM #84835fiddlewoodParticipant
