    Have a J.D. and 10 years of sobriety, but no two point. Bought a Collings last year and a Pava recently. Saw a two point a few weeks ago and told myself to slow down.
    Hope you enjoy the Hamlett...

    A decade is 10 years. The mandolin was not used by those bands "seven decades" ago. Please, I am getting old fast enough on my own.

    Re: Where are the Mandola Books?

    There are now several mandola sheet music books on Amazon. Many are composed or arranged by Ondrej Sarek.
    My favorite is by Hans Landau - Mandolin Instrumentals.

    Put it on a short step stool or something and give it a try.

    I took cello lessons for two years. My...

    Re: Why Mandolin?

    My mother forced me to take piano lessons. Years later I learned the teacher did not like little boys. Piano did not last long. Begging for a different teacher did no good.

    Weber mandolins are too bright for me. Have a Weber mandola that is great.
    Tried one Northfield, it was very nonresponsive.

    The only charango I have been around was in a community band in Moab, Utah. It was made with an armadillo shell.
