Subject: RE: Mandolin Help - Pick Direction For Jigs
Hi Aine. I've been pickin' mandolin for a lotta years and I have to say unequivically.......YES, and NO!

Gotta go with the mooman on this. Once you get a little more experience you'll find yourself able to make last milli-second decisions on an up or down stroke. When you choose wrong the fun begins. Then you have to REALLY think to get yourself back into the groove.

Great fun though.
