    Been a couple years since this thread has surfaced, some of the new guys who haven't seen it should get a kick out of it. It is a time consumer though.

    I've done this. I am also guilty of 90% (at least) of the other posts. I guess I am a mandolin picker....

    If you池e falling asleep next to your partner in bed and you hear a song in your head so you start to strum on their face, you might be a mandolin picker.

    If you know who Ray Jackson is, and tell everyone whenever Rod Stewart comes up, you might just be a mandolin picker.

    ... and if every time someone starts playing "Maggie May," you prick up your ears and wait for the coda riff to see if it gets done right.

    Also, if anyone anywhere anytime someone starts playing "Friend Of The Devil," you pay close attention to everything about it.

    In fact, I went to a friend's gig, and they did this near the start of their second set. I happened to have my mandolin with me - happens - and they kept looking over at me. So I pulled it out in time to take a couple of leads right from where I was sitting. They were quiet enough and my banjo-killer is loud enough that it worked. Now, if only they had gotten the verses in the right order!

    You hear a song - any song, any genre, any instrumentation - and imagine how it could be improved with the addition of a mandolin. And then work out the part in your mind and fit it into what you're hearing.

    Oh, and you wish the mandosmiley emoji could be used in your other web presences.

    Amen to that, Brother. I am not generally an emoji user, but I would sure use that one if I knew how to 'export' it out of the Cafe.
