    I love Chris Thile's playing on the mando.

    My favorite Mandolin song. I think Wayne Benson is playing an Octave Mandolin for this one.

    Chris Thiles influenced me to buy a Mandolin. He didnt influence me enough to actually pick the dang thing up though :lol:. He falls into that category of musicians I wish would just play the instrument and not sing.

    I just got a Kentucky KM900 for the same reason, but I have actually been picking it up more than my guitars lately. I can only play REM's "Losing My Religion" on it though. I'm hoping to take mandolin class this summer.:)

    A few other mandolinists that I like:

    I've been playing mine more than guitar lately as well, working on the fox and cuckoos nest.





    This one is fun as well

    Just bought a Loar LM400. It's really easy to play and I'm enjoying it alot.

    I bought an old Kay mando last year with a Kelvinator headstock and learned a few chords, but put it down and haven't bothered with it too much. I learned the chords to "Dead Flowers" and figured out a little solo, but that's as far as I've gotten. I need to just immerse myself and learn some more chords and get comfortable with the neck. I would like to bring it out and use it with the band.

    NMD!

    Nice!

    I just threw down for a used-in-great-shape KM 900 last night. Haven't played mando in ~3 decades and am looking forward to getting back into it. Here are some talented young pickers on ACL with a cool Dawg'd up take on a great Tom Waits tune.

    I picked up a used tobacco-burst Michael Kelly Legacy Deluxe a couple of years ago. Solid, hand-carved spruce top, solid flame maple back and sides, ebony fingerboard and bridge. A right proper F5 mandolin. Plays and sounds great! Not bad for two bills.

    First tune I learned was "Boat on the River" by Styx. I've been listening to a lot of Bill Monroe and Jimmy Gaudreau lately. Chris Thile has impressed me with his classical, jazz and bluegrass repertoire.
