Am I biting off more than I can chew?
OK, I "discovered" mandolin 9 months ago when I bought my first instrument. Now I'm completely hooked and wanting to learn as much as I can as fast as I can. Here's some of the stuff I'm trying to focus on: FFcP, mastering double stops, playing up the neck, learning more chords, basic crosspicking, smooth tremolos, improvising off of basic melodies, increasing my speed, improving my tone, and learning as many fiddle tunes as I can absorb. Am I crazy to want it all? Is there a recommended order in which all this good stuff should be tackled?
