@kindascratchy, that's good to know. I didn't know they were tuned the same. That does seem like a great way to add another instrument without having to learn a completely different fingering system. I'll have to look into that. I can also see how it could help one learn the violin fingerboard easier as well, particularly in the higher positions.

Yes, I also use the mando sometimes to pick out the tunes I'm trying to learn. I wouldn't say I'm very proficient on it, but I do know where the notes are and how to make chords. I mostly use it for learning tunes for the fiddle, but occasionally I'll just do some strumming to accompany the boyfriend on his guitar.
Let the bow flow.
