    Re: Tchaikovsky on mandolin

    I’d love to hear this piece done with the horn as a solo mandola and then the mandocello play the trombone part and a bass playing the tuba part, but it is a very nice arrangement of the pieces.

    I'm a classical player, and I actually prefer heavier, rounder picks, but then again, I actually prefer the fuller, rounder sound to the tinny, shrill sound. Truly to each their own.
