Re: Zither Sunday November 17,2019

Grüezi Rudi!

Say, what can we do to increase participation here on the Forum?

With over 100 members, you'd think there might be a bit more activity - videos of members playing, instruments, music, etc.

Dank.

Re: Viele grusse aus Seattle!

You know, with over 100 members here, you'd think that there would be more than a handful of members willing to help the beginners!

Re: Viele grusse aus Seattle!

Hi Evelyn. Are you saying you were taking lessons which lasted 50 minutes? or that you were practicing alone for 50 minutes? Rita is certainly experiencing problems when she refers to a one hour lesson each day as a beginner. You were indeed lucky to have a teacher! Tom M. ... where did you hear you...

Re: Viele grusse aus Seattle!

Hi Rita - I'm afraid I don't have positive news. If you search for my previous posts and videos, you'll find the story. Lessons are impossible if you don't have a zither player to work with. I did find one zitherist down near NYC, but weekly lessons would be a logistical nightmare. I also found that...
