    Re: Mandolin flagship song?

    Another really tough spot to be, as a musician, is one I found myself in when I was a youngster: I'd walk in, and folks would ask me to play a fiddle tune. I'd have to tell them, "I'm sorry. I don't...

    Re: Picking both strings in a course

    I'm not sure I know what "float fingers" means, but when I was playing today I made a point to take notice. The only place my right arm is in contact with my mandolin is at the armrest. So maybe I...

    What's in your case?

    I ask from curiosity, and in a search for inspiration: Other than your mandolin, what do you keep in your case or gig bag? I keep an extra set of strings and some picks. How about you?

    Re: Eastman MD305 = AMAZING!

    My only mandolin is an MD305 and I'm quite happy with her. Happy enough that I bought her big sister, an MDO305 octave mandolin, which arrived on Thursday. I'm delighted with her, too.
