Hiya! A friend of mine recently wrote a really nifty blog post/opinion article about her experiences as a classical musician attempting to play Irish music for the first time. It resonated with a whole lot of people; so many, in fact, that it seemed like a good idea to repost it here.

It's a topic that's been much-discussed on this board in many bits and pieces, but I think Lisa did an exceptional job pulling all the elements of the discussion together. So if you're interested, here's the link!

All the best,

Cathy Wilde

Wonderful article! I learned these lessons when I transitioned from classical guitar to flamenco. Luckily I was in a space where I could learn and with mentors who were patient and tolerated my missteps. I very much agree with the need to immerse yourself in the music. I listened to nothing but flamenco for the first two years while the sounds and rhythms seeped into my unconscious. After a while I was able to play things I had never played before but had heard over and over again. Everyone should read this article. Thanks for posting it.
Mike
