    Lately, I've been searching for a mandolin while reading on this site! There's quite a few new and used mandolins in this part of L.A. That's what we call Lower Alabama!

    What luck to find another guitar and that first mandolin within about a week. The Kentucky KM-380 is sitting in layaway for a bit with a decent setup, and those new EJ-74 strings are ordered. Easy songs, that's what I hope to learn, first!

    Good for you! I hope you can get it out of layaway soon and start learning. You've come to the right place.

    Thanks, everyone! It's nice to feel welcome. Most of the playing above the twelfth fret is what I'm seeing in discussions. There's a ton of online lesson videos that help with learning new songs. This will be fun. My 'electric' guitar skills are improving as well.

    Welcome John,

    If you can find a teacher. That has helped me a lot. I played bass for over 40 years before picking up a mandolin and now I know just how little I knew about music.
