    Re: Payment for Mandolins on Mandolin Cafe

    I wouldn’t risk money without protection. If you can lose your entire sum without concern you might think differently.

    Re: The newest hot mandolin accessory!

    I waited for the school bus once in -24, in the first grade. I had no choice.

    Re: To be or not to be (a bluegrass player)

    Maybe this thread will diminish new threads about the prevalence of bluegrass players or the ‘overwhelming’ bluegrass point of view on the site.

    Or not.

    Re: Playing with three fingers

    Django got by with 2 useable fingers on the 6 courses of a guitar.

    If you can make 3 fingers work, great.

    Re: Givson Urbashi mandolin on Ebay

    It’s sad it doesn’t have those real Gibson self tuners, “when only a Gibson is good enough”.
