    That was awesome! It sounds like Johnny Gimble's mandolin only has four strings despite the 8 string peghead.
    Play that which you feel is groovy, get down with your bad self, and shake your money maker if it makes sense for you to do so.

    Yep, that's what he did, Scotter. Also, he tunes it as a mandola (C, G, A, D). More than you want to know about Johnny's mandolin: http://www.emando.com/players/Gimble.htm
