    Perish the thought! An ukulele is a small guitar. A mandolin is what you get if a violin and a twelve string guitar had a baby
    Mandolin: Kentucky KM150
    Other instruments: way too many, and yet, not nearly enough.

    I once described my dreadnought as a "six single string course octave mandolin in an alternate tuning."
    It got a laugh.

    I am moving toward calling my 10-string an alto guitar. I covers the tenor range but goes higher, with a lighter tone in general. And means they won’t expect to hear either O Sole Mio or Rawhide.
