    Re: Any arguments AGAINST MAS?

    Re: Any arguments AGAINST MAS?

    It sounds to me like you may need to buy a little better mandolin, Sherry. Might as well go ahead and do it.

    I have three mandolins here, but two of them have things wrong and are not playable. ...

    Re: 3 hours of practice a day?

    I practice as much as I can, but nowhere near 3 hours a day. I don't see how adults with multiple responsibilities can hide away and practice that much. A kid or student, even college student,...

    Re: RH anchor issue

    Thank you very much, David. I have been wondering if I am doing it wrong, and will go back to square one on Tremolo and see if I can get the hang of it.

    Re: RH anchor issue

    Re: Ten Years In

    I hear you, Mike, and you are not alone. Just have fun playing, and if it isn't fun, quit. I am also just a hack, but I really like the sounds a mandolin makes when you pluck the strings. I keep...

    Re: what would you do

    I would never go back. Life is too short to support people like that.

    Hi Liza.

    The Mandolin Store and Folkmusician are both here on the forum. Both places are great and can sell you a new mandolin with a great setup. Good luck, and let us know what you wind up...

    Re: Slump......slump buster?
