Jack

thank you for that advise, I do find it difficult to translate a tune into notes, a friend of mine, who only plays by ear always said you cannot play properly until you can achieve this, which I do believe. Unfortunately he said it will come to you eventually but I just don't seam to be able to do that. Barron Collin of MandoLessons also suggest that you should only learn by ear although he does provided the dots and I usually end up looking at them. His video's also lets you see his finger positions so although you do not have the music you can still cheat.

Your advise is very helpful and I will work on that, Nigel has given us some guidance on the construction of a tune and the phrasing but maybe he should take the approach of not handing out tabs and and encourage us to use our ears. I think you are correct on the willingness to try but again been eager to play something tends to make me take the easy route of getting the music and using that. I will need to take you advice and try harder.

cheers
