    Default Best Advice You Were Given in Practicing or Playing the Mandolin

    For me, it was advice from Pete Martin that in learning to play the mandolin , there is a difference in playing the the mandolin and practicing the mandolin ! Practice should be slower and I should isolate the more difficult parts in practice.
    My two favorite pastimes are drinking wine and playing the mandolin but most of my friends would rather hear me drink wine! Adapted from quote by Mark Twain------supposedly !

    "Go back to golf."

    (I've never played golf. Maybe this was an insult.)
