    If your in a crowd of people, listening to music, and you are the only one clapping to the off beat, you might be a mandolin picker.

    You might be a mandolin picker if you're dumb enough to pay 10 times what your guitar player paid for his axe, and you end up with the smaller instrument...

    You #might be a mandolin picker if you find you're never ready for the next song because you haven't finished retuning...

    You might be a mandolin picker if the tenor banjo player always laughs at how long your string changes take...

    In court, you always take the 5th...

    You can crowd all your fingers on top of a nickel...

    You will read really, really lame humor if it is mando related...

    If you are bewildered by the constant changes of Celebrity maritial statuses but have no problem planning your next instrument upgrade.... you might be a mando picker.

    If someone mentions the Dead Sea Scrolls and you ask if they were finished on the inside...you might be a mandolin picker.

    If you are the only guy in the band who can play his instrument in the car on the way to a gig, you might be a mandolin picker.

    You might be a mandolin picker if you know F-hole is not a curse.
    You might be a mandolin picker if you played fiddle and forgot your bow.
    You might be a mandolin picker if you love making banj* jokes.
    You might be a mandolin picker if you spend your day on this website instead of working.

    I KNOW I'm the mandopicker because when I tell the banjo player he's plays a drum on a stick, he tells me I play a Propiel Pocket Pickerman!

    if you fingers look like a pin cushion after changing strings.
    if when playing Monroe style and asked what note you are playing you say it is implied.

    if you would rather have an 8 pack of strings than a 6 pack of beer.
    if your weekend T-shirt of choice has MAS anywhere on it.

    If your gig bag contains two electronic tuners and no capo.

    if you only get to kick off 1 song out of every 10, and when you do, it's a turnaround in 3/4 time.

    If you think that one mandolin could never be enough.
