    I love this stuff. I especially love electric mandolin in the context of Western Swing. If I am not mistaken, there was an Asleep At the Wheel album that had a cut or two of Marty Stewart, playing an electric mandolin.

    From the perspective the general public, the mandolin itself is such a minority instrument, the electric mandolin is a genuine obscurity. I doubt if there are many followers of this stuff that aren't also players. I would bet the most prominent electric mandolin player in the general public today is Michael Kang, and I would bet most if not all of his fans think he plays guitar.

    It is difficult to find a context for electric mandolin that isn't electric guitar envy. But, that said, electric mandolin is so much fun to play.
    Indulge responsibly!

    I won't do the research right now (it's bedtime here in Dubai), but the music as the final credits roll in a western that stars Brad Pitt is definitely (to my ears, at least) a bone-dry Fender mandocaster.

    I may have the wrong movie, maybe it was a way-too-long Billy the Kid thing it's been a long day

    I experienced this very phenomenon last summer. A friend of mine who has seen the band live several times invited me over to watch an SCI/Keller Williams livestream and it took a couple minutes' convincing before he was willing to accept that Kang didn't play 'a tiny guitar'.

    I recorded that! That whole show (and several of the same group) was fantastic.

    Playing 5 string I am really enjoying the low end of the instrument. I've probably always been a natural mandola player, but one has to arrive at these things in stages I guess.

    Bb is one of my new favourite chords. It's so fat on my G5. F major and G minor are two of my new favourite keys.
    And I have noticed myself using ii chords more when writing.

    I would definitely check out Tiny Moore's playing on all the Billy Jack Wills recordings you can find. Super swingin recordings with a great band!
    Here is a link:

    Lot's of great boogie, standard western swing, and just super simple melodic lines that swing like crazy with the band.
