  4. Re: Definition of a good mandolin player’s spouse

    My wife bought me my first mandolin thinking I might want to try to learn how to play it.
    More than a decade later I'm still trying and she still hasn't divorced me. I think that qualifies.

    Re: Mandolin flagship song?

    No... Bernie's right. The whole thing is subjective. The first question asked in the OP is: Does the mandolin have a “flagship” song?
    Literally calls for a 'yes-or-no' answer, but obviously any...

  11. Re: Anybody fixed this kind of left thumb aggravation?

    I'm not a doctor (don't even play one on TV) and I don't know what that irritated spot is exactly. My only observation/advice is that thumb placement on your fretting hand is (should be) different on...

    Re: ? Changing strings

    That's a video that I'd like to see too.

    Re: The Darlings Mandolin switch

    The 'Darlings' were actually the 'Dillards' and they helped introduce the (uninitiated) world to the Bluegrass sound through that show. As I understand it, the mandolin you see is not always the...

    Re: Remember When

    Yeah, I think that little intro video Zach posted about covers it. Just learn that in G (the key it starts out). You've got G, Em, C and D chords to work with in that key.

    Re: Remember When

    A nice AJ song IMO and a subtle spotlight for the mandolin. I'll bet if you've already had some success "picking it out by ear" if you stick with it, you'll get it all.
