    Re: Dr. Arm for Mandolin

    Some people use an arm rest and really like it. I say more power to them!

    Some people don't use an arm rest and get along fine. I say more power to them!

    It's your mandolin. Enjoy.

    Re: Does my mandolin sound cheap???

    I think your mando sounds just fine. I would agree with the previous posters. Don't be afraid to pick a little harder. It will come along with practice and confidence!

    I like it! To me it's like discovering a new color. My western music ear says those notes shouldn't be there, but they pop up like tasty treats. Very exciting!
