New Mando

After the soccer game in Lakewood (near Denver), which we won 4-0 (yea), I drove over the the Olde Town Picken’ Parlor in Arvada. After two hours of playing and looking at Mandolins and some other instruments, I bough a Collings MT2. It looks like the one in the picture, except mine has gold hardware. I don’t think that it’d be a stretch to say that this, handmade in Austin Texas, mandolin is worth more than my other 6 guitars combined. But it is . . . sweet. Now I just need to learn how to play it better.

Diane – I did pick up (not purchase) a banjo while looking around today. I didn’t know that the 5th string which has its tuning peg half-way up the neck is actually thinner and higher pitched than the strings right next to it. Interesting.
