    Re: Finger style mandolin

    I met a guy at Green Mountain BG&R fest this year who used both pick and fingers and it had a super sweet sound, great affect on the music. He said he grew his fingernails out a bit to do it. I've...
  2. Re: Just tried a Blue Chip pick on my mandolin

    I just got the CT-55 and I wasn't super impressed. I mean, it seems like my Wegen gets a louder chop and the Red Bear Tri-tip I just got has an almost as good chop, and has a nice round sound for...

    Re: Pick comparison

    Hi everyone, thanks for all the input. I think I'm going to go with a Blue Chip and a Red Bear, and compare them to my current Wegen. I'll update to compare them later.

  6. Re: Looking for different mandolin music to learn-obscure/nonstan

    I mean... why should it be "mandolin music" that's your boundary? My main focus has been on jazz for a third of the time I've been playing. People are always a little shocked to see a mandolinist at...

    Re: Old Beech Wood

    Old Beech Wood

    2-Mando Case

    Anyone know of a good 2-mando case being made somewhere? I've read that they often get heavy so it would be nice if it had wheels or a strap.
