    From your recommendation I made an order from Strings and Beyond for a couple "cheaper" picks. Shipping was quick, nice extras! Came in time for some picking this weekend!

    Re: Mandolin flagship song?

    I'd like to add to this that the Mandolin is used in more genres of music as mentioned many times already where the banjo, to the masses, seems like a one trick pony, which it's not.
