Meta: flatpick650 twitter feed

Here it is in all its web 2.0 glory.

I'll be using the feed to document my practice hours, in the idea that shaming myself by publicly showing my lack of practice will push me to practice more.

EDIT: yesterday's practice

Quicklink: All the Good Times / Maiden's Prayer / Red Wing

A quick dump of some arrangements I've been working on.

The Red Wing arrangement is still very much a basic melody / work in progress and will likely be updated.

All the Good Times Are Past and Gone - from Dix Bruce's double-stop mando tab (PDF)

Maiden's Prayer - key of A, rearranged from piano sheet (PDF)

Red Wing - from (PDF)

Jam update and whatnot coming later this evening.
