    I am hoping that someone will describe how Andrew grips his pick and how he came to use that particular grip. It looks to me like he is holding it between his thumb and middle finger.

    I really enjoyed that, Jody, thank you. Your mandolin is a gem. It's one of the best things I love about playing mandolin, just sitting around and picking solo, slower tunes with a gentle touch, for tone and feeling. It is very therapeutic.

    Thank you, David, very proud to be the first Martin player on these videos, I think Martin made some of the best mandolins ever!

    Fine playing. In the summary of mandolins used last week we'd noted no appearance yet of a Martin mandolin, so this a welcome event to have one today.

    Nice tune, David, and I really like how your Apitius has a lot of pop and muscle in the notes even though you are playing fairly lightly.
