Thread Name: I bought a mandolin!
Subject: RE: I bought a mandolin!
Hi Peg,

How 'bout that...I just got a mandolin a couple of weeks ago too. I'm a guitar player but took up fiddle a few years back, so mandolin was a natural (tuning's the same as violin). I find playing mandolin helps both my fiddle playing (the longer scale helps stretch my hand and finger position) and guitar playing (have to be more precise with picking and left hand finger position).

Enjoy and good luck,
Dave T
