    Been playing mandolin, bass & guitar--
    I have a couple of riff ideas for bass & mandolin.
    Just need to decide on some song structure--I may need to record some ideas & play along to them.

    Re: Emando players: What do you want in an amp?

    I use the amps I have for guitar.
    I like a good clean sound and the ability to sculpt a tone as even different guitars will need adjustment of the amp--so a mandolin even moreso.

    As to what it is...

    Re: Does mandolin improve guitar technique

    While there are differences, learning a different instrument can help you with other instruments--you have to learn to come at things from different angles--and many of the skills are transferrable,...

  14. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    I've got the same 4--although I rarely play keyboards as I don't have a piano or other keyboard at home, and over the years my focus was guitar.
    As well I play bass (& a bit of guitar) at church and...

    Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    I play guitar, bass & mandolin.

    I'm probably best at guitar, then bass & then mandolin-which is also the order of when I started playing each.

    They all have their difficulties.

  19. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    That's fine-your choice that way.
    As a guitar player--I definitely hear the difference.

    And I like it because I am not playing "Traditional" or "Typical" mandolin styles.

    Re: Abbey Road Medley - Bluegrass Style

    This makes me want to try this with my mandolin.
    I have tried parts of it on guitar.

    Re: Gig bags: The Good and Bad

    Generally I prefer hardshell cases or better
    There are some gig bags that are more durable than most and some have been mentioned here.
