    Re: Northfield Big Mon Engelmann Top

    In my experience, the difference between Red and Englemann can be subtle, but it can be heard. My red topped mandolin (Bob Schneider) is bright, loud and clear and totally satisfied me. MAS was at...

    Re: I have been playing wrong all my life

    I think it's good that you are now aware of the different ways to manage your right hand, but not everyone follows those guidelines. Any good teacher will find alternatives when their initial attempt...
