Re: Mandolinist, or guitarist playing mandolin?
There's some great insight here. I was just jamming w/ my friend's rock band, and started to cross paths w/ the guitar a little too much. Granted, it was during the verses and we were hitting something like a 2-step shuffle together, but I noticed that clacky thing from me and thought it was just ugly. I think less is definitely more in that situation.
I thing I'm gonna try a few different ideas next time like only hitting the chop on the downbeat, or double-stops so I can stay out of his way if he's gonna take that part.
