    Re: Steely Dan

    I think 'Any Major Dude' would sound great arranged for mando.

    Maybe 'Bodhisattva' as well, but you'd have to have some speed to keep up with the solos from Dias and Baxter

    That one is in my top five MO clips. For more speed, there's some Pickathon clips ("Mailman" and "Rocky Island") where Andrew burns a few. Also playing the Sullivan.

    Re: On holidays. Forgot my pick!

    How long is your holiday? Snipping a corner off a credit card is probably your best bet - though I'd try Mike's suggestion of some folded paper with tape. Maybe the pull-tab off a canned beverage...
