Cluin Tech: Mandolin-Oval vs. F-hole? (49) RE: Tech: Mandolin-Oval vs. F-hole? 26 Nov 08

One other point... the strap is usually shorter so the mandolin is slung higher on the body, not down below your crotch like some rockers do with their guitars. The higher position makes trills and quick alternating picking easier (from the elbow for less fatigue) than trying to control them with your wrist only at the bottom of your arm extension.
