  1. Re: Right-handed fiddle player, left-handed mando player

    Thanks, Charlie,
    Inspired by yourself and others I've now committed to playing righty. And following Niles' example I've spent a few hours this weekend writing right-handed and I've surprised...
  2. Re: Right-handed fiddle player, left-handed mando player

    Hi Niles,

  9. Right-handed fiddle player, left-handed mando player

    Mandolin Cafe newbie and my first thread. I play fiddle with my local community folk orchestra here in England. I'd like to add another string to my bow, as it were, and learn the mandolin. To that...
