GUEST,sharon g Mandolin Mudcatters survey (70* d) RE: Mandolin Mudcatters survey 18 May 06

Is the mandolin your primary instrument or a sideline?
Currently mainly a sideline- I'm mainly playing fiddle - partly by choice, and partly because mandolin seems to aggravate an RSI problem worse than fiddle. But I still get it out to learn tunes or play on by myself sometimes

Do you perform regularly with others/are you part of an organized group?
Yes, I'm in an Irish music/contra dance band ( Round the House)

What type of music do you play?
Irish and contra dance

What style would you LIKE to be playing?

Are you happy with your mandolin?
Yes, generally. When I played a lot, I needed a fret job after a few years, and eventually the tailpiece fatigued and had to be replaced, but the action, sound etc were acceptable for the price

What type/style/brand of mandolin do you own.
Flatiron A style, about 12 years old
