6 years. Its been 6 years...and only now am I comfortable picking up, holding, and picking on the mandolin in the most basic way. Competence really is a stumble...one of these days I'll figure out how to fret clean every time.
Still, got my first tune picked at 230 BPM the other day. I feel some sort of limit has been raised.
