    Default Viva charango!

    On monday I sprained the dickens out of my wrist on a wet bball court. I'm in a big splint and had to cancel a Wednesday job. But today I looked in the corner of the room at my chrngo and aha it was the one instrument I could play in a splint and we had great session! I'm still week(s) away from fiddle and anything else. I dont think I can do mndln in it.

    I once played a show with a swollen middle finger (that I could hardly bend) on my fretting hand. Luckily, it was dark.

    Here’s to a speedy recovery.

    Is yours made from an armadillo shell? I had one for a while that was the only instrument I've ever owned with hair and ears.

    No I've got a nice one-piece, solid-headstock Zambrano - Peruvian IIRC.

    Armadillo shell-constructed ones tend to deform over time - not the best material for longevity. (To further confuse listeners, I call a chrngo a mandolin with peccadillos..
