Subject: RE: Mandolin Help - Pick Direction For Jigs
Dear Aine,

No special hard and fast rule. DUD DUD works well on some jigs, e.g. Kid on the Mountain but is not so good on other, e.g. Cliffs of Moher (where I personally use a DDD UD pattern. I thinks it's better to use what feels comfortable and natural for you for any particular jig.

Glad you have managed to overcome the neck strangling!

All best regards,
