Anyway I was wondering if there was anyone here who has any experience with playing the mandolin who might be able to offer any advice. I am thinking that when the tax money arrives I might purchase the Kentucky km-100. Is this a good choice? Reviews online seem to indicate this is a good beginner's mandolin but I've never actually met someone who's played one.
Also, how about any instructional DVDs or the like? I plan on taking lessens, but would like to at least familiarize myself with the basics of playing (and the instrument itself) before starting lessons.
Any thoughts or advice are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
