Dale Hinckley replied to Antonio Cotichini's discussion About mandolin (what else?) in the group Mandolin Players
"Hi Antonio. I'm also fairly new to mandolin and I think that the key to playing mando is to forget about our guitarist's approach to chords, which is to try to sound all the strings when possible. I think mandolin players make much more…"

Dale Hinckley replied to Ralph's discussion Alternating thumb

Dale Hinckley commented on Dan Gabel, Editor & Group Publisher's group Mandolin Players
