    Re: Santa brought a new tailpiece!

    I love this strap, too. Bought it used from MandoMutt. I like the knots, but I also like that it cinches down tight to the endpin.

    Main chords besides those you mentioned are Cm, Dm, Gm, Adim. For modal songs you’ll need Ab. I’m not sure what you mean by “alternate chord.” (I’m not sure why didn’t Google this. You could have...

    I can’t imagine having only one mandolin. I need to have a beater for times when I don’t want to risk a nicer mandolin. I need to have a good spare when my best mandolin is in the shop. So for me,...
