    Re: Comfy in our new RV

    kjbllc - I don't think it's unusual to be flummoxed a bit by the way chords sound on the mandolin, at first. Your ear (hearing) will grow along with your skill and with your knowledge of chords. As...

    Re: Comfy in our new RV

    We've been looking at Palo Duro real hard, Russ. It may be one of the first trips in the travel trailer. I agree about Texas State Park scene, it's pretty awesome. I've enjoyed many of those parks...

    Re: Comfy in our new RV

    I whittled everything down to one mandolin and a 12th fret guitar, as I'd intended to travel the country in my old camper van, but then I remarried (to an ex-wife, no less!) so plans have changed....
