    Default Lloyd Loar Mandola

    Great, now I really want a mandola, too! Does anybody know what that first tune is? So familiar, can't quite place it.

    I believe that first tune is the Oopik Waltz. And that mandola sounds like $100,000.

    That's the Opik Waltz, not sure if its spelled correctly my spelling has always been a scandle!

    Ookpik.

    What's the deal with wearing a sweatshirt with a zipper while demonstrating priceless instruments? (Multiple videos and instruments.)
    I saw Homer & Jethro once. This mandolin therapy isn't helping me get over it.

    This week I just received a Weber Gallitan mandola, it may not be a Lloyd Loar, but its way nicer playing and sounding than I was anticipating. I had an Eastman a few years ago that I didn't like nearly as much. Mandola is a nice change from mandolin; a little bit of a stretch but not out of reach, even 4 finger chop chords. It's also fun exercise to transpose your fingerlings to the key of the instrument.
