    The mandolin, in bluegrass, also provides that characteristic bluegrass "chunk" on the off-beats, known as "chopping".

    I've found that once I can't get my A strings in tune it's time for a new set.
  13. Re: What do you do when you're not "feeling" the mandolin?

    Re: Use of the rounded side of pick

    I know a lot of mandolin picks are symmetrical and have all three sides rounded like the shoulders, and that's about where my knowledge ends. I for one prefer the pointier end.
