Please Subscribe to My YouTube Channel

I generally post at least once a week, sometimes more often, depending on the weather.  It's been nice outside lately, so I  have not been posting much.  But when I do, I like to make videos that respond to comments and questions from some of the Facebook Groups I manage.  In particular, there are 2 mandolin for beginners groups on Facebook where I get most of the questions.  I've posted some Polls there to find out what people are most interested in learning.  Interestingly enough, most people want to learn chords, scales and how to improvise!  That's very cool.

Please subscribe, dear reader, to the channel.  Once I get to 1,000 subscribers, I can monetize the channel and start making money from it.  For now, I rely on donations through my Patreon channel, and students.
