@Eng JR Lupo RV323 ya I thought for a long time that my hands were too large to play mandolin as well, that is why I picked up an irish bouzouki, it's essentially a guitar sized mandolin, easier to play big chords.
But then I realized it was not nearly as versatile, after I sat down with a mandolin, I realized that there are so many variations of chords for the tuning, that you can used more spaced out chords in lieu of the tightly grouped ones. It's a versitile instrument that almost anyone can play. There are some HUGE mandolin players out there
Tuning in 5ths is a lot of fun [how your mandolin is tuned, vs. 4ths for a guitar] for many years I played electric bass tuned C G D A, then later on D A E G which is kind of a hybrid tuning, but it gets you thinking in ways you never otherwise would.
That instrument is a real beauty you got there, best of all: acoustic !!
The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
