Mountain Mamas Music Monday - the start of summer edition

Hey Mamas!

I hope everyone had a nice rest over the long Memorial Day weekend. I know that Lorabelle and I are excited that the sun has finally seemed to return for a little while which means that the grass is growing and the birds are singing. And with Memorial Day ushering in the unofficial start of summer, you know what that means... it’s time for festival season to kick into high gear! This also means that Mountain Mamas will be on summer break until August. We’ll still keep the blog going over the summer and we’ll let you know when we’re going to be heading to a fun show or event, but we won’t be holding any workshops until the end of August. So go hear some music this summer, grab some friends for a jam, keep your instruments handy and your fingers limber, and we’ll see you in the fall!

Amazing Slow Downer

You may already have this, but I just recently purchased it so I could work on a tough solo I was transcribing. So helpful! I especially liked that I could grab music from Spotify and then easily slow it down and break it into learnable chunks.


Have a wonderful week everyone!
