I'm not sure how many of you guys play these instruments but I do and I've found some great sites to get info on how to play em better. The one for mandolin is mandolincafe.com and the one for banjo is banjohangout.org. There's also a cool site on jazz mandolin I believe it's called jazzmando.com, there's a link to it on mandolin cafe, it has some good jazz theory that can be applied to any instrument. Just figured I'd post this and see if there were any banjo and mando pickers here on jemsite!

yeah man, mando is a tough instrument. I'd love to get the other 2 instruments in the mando family (mandocello and mandola.) I've always been a sucker for wacky instruments that share commonalities with guitar (frets etc.) Personally i dunno how Bill Monroe and Sam Bush and Grisman play as fast as they do on that thing!
