    Re: Inexpensive starter mandolin advice needed

    FWIW I'd echo what Dagger says, I have heard a few decent Ozarks, I can't say the same about Staggs, the ones I have heard have been pretty weak and thin.

    Re: Baroque mandolin

    Good looking and sounding instrument. I like the tune too.

    Re: Olga Egorova on mandola

    Re: Tuner...not Tuners

    Re: Calace method exercise 52

    Hmmm, I think I would find it hard not to start on a down stoke, and since I am going into tremolo and thus picking a lot quicker I think it would be ok. As to what a modern players in the Italian...
