This great! Thanks, Pierre! No one will forget that this is a violin/fiddle site, but since the mandolin is so closely related to the violin in terms of tuning and usage (in bluegrass and traditional music), it's nice to have a place to discuss mandolin-related topics, especially since so many of us fiddlers also play mandolin. This way, we don't have to leave our Fiddlerman home and go elsewhere.

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

Thanks @Fiddlerman - this will be great. I haven't played my fiddle so much since I joined the Fiddlerman site - maybe the mando home will get me going again on the mandolin. Welcome back - glad you enjoyed your vacation.

@Tucson1 - nice mandolins - I especially like the one that looks like a banjo. Looking forward to hearing some of your your mando tunes soon.

No thanks necessary. It's I who should thank you all for this thread. I believe this site will suit all stringed instruments and is closely related to so many of the genres we work on here.

@kindascratchy thanks for that quote from the Wizzard of Oz. 

I just popped in to check out Mando land today. :)
