    Re: Picks

    +1 for trying the pick samplers. You never know what you're going to like until you try them all
    (spoiler: it probably won't be the $40 Blue Chip)

    Re: 10-year mandolin anniversary

    Congrats on a decade of mandolin!

    My suggestion is to take a mandolin themed vacation.

    Re: What if I bought the wrong instrument?

    I was quite relieved to read your anguish was choosing between oval and F holed mandolins, because my first impression of the subject line implied that you bought a banjo.

    Re: A trip to Elderly

    Take your credit card! I was at Elderly in the late 90's and saw a Rickenbacker electric mando. The price was out of my league at the time, but I've never seen another one. I sure wish I'd have...
