Thread Name: Mandolin Mudcatters survey
Subject: RE: Mandolin Mudcatters survey
i have a mandolin (Mandolute...by Weymann)
which i occasionally play...i used to play
it more before I got interested in nyckelharpa
but i play guitar way more that either of them.

I do not have a pick up in it yet, but plan to
use a "mini-flex" as i have in my guitars. it
is now available thru GHS strings, i think.

i took up mandolin mostly to encourage my left
hand to play melody notes, and celtic music is
the genre i most often play on it (fiddle tunes)

i think it has helped my left hand technique when
i play guitar..
