    Broke my arm. What can I do while it heals?

    Slipped on the ice and broke my left arm. Can't move my elbow for the next few weeks but I have a decent amount of mobility in my left hand. I REALLY miss my mando. :( Are there any exercises I can...
  10. Re: Sore fingers - but now know altogether 7 chords

    Vanilla,

    Pain in your left hand could (though not necessarily) have a lot to do with how you're holding the mandolin. When you're sitting down, support the instrument between your legs. You...
