Thread Name: Mandolin Mudcatters survey
Subject: RE: Mandolin Mudcatters survey
Primary instrument - I've never learned guitar but I recently got an octave mandola to sing with rather than the mandolin.
Used to play with a dance band.English, attempts at Irish, and song accompaniment.
Same only competently (practice would help)
I've had the same instrument since I was 21 (38 years ago). A 'F de Mureda Strumenti Armonici Napoli anno 190 '(that's what's legible on the label. Lovely tone, good action tho now needs refretting again, very plain, not worth much, but I wouldn't part with it for ever so.
