    Hi All. Just joined up after lurking for about a year. I'm really a mandolin player trying to look cool by playing electric. The Fender Alternate Reality Tenor (FART) Telecaster is what brought me into the light. I have appreciated the wisdom and wit I've found here on the TDPRI as a lurker - figured it was time to enlist.

    Peace.

    Welcome. Have not been to Iowa yet. But heard only great things. It's been in my consciousness ever since I saw The Music Man as a pre-teen.

    Mando is great!
    We have a bluegrass mando player from Kentucky in our little Rez band! He usually plays guitar and sings, but we make him play mando on occasion!!

    Welcome from Arizona!!

    Welcome

    Do you have a mandocaster?
    I think those instruments are cool

    I’m a guitar player that secretly wants to play mandolin and hasn’t made the jump yet

    I also have mmhmmm banjo fantasies

    I had to try 3 times before I finally escaped Iowa. Welcome from a LeClaire refugee.

    LeClaire is beautiful! It's a place I would aspire to escape to - for a weekend at least!

    I have one of the early 2000's re-issue mandocasters, plus a bunch of other acoustic mandolins. It's a fun instrument, but I do get funny stares from lots of folks who think I'm playing a little guitar.

    I didn’t know they made a reissue, cool

    I’d like to get one so I have something smaller to play when lounging around

    My next build is a solid body mandolin! Likely be a year, or maybe two before completion as I am being "encouraged" to finish a few other things first...

    Welcome! My wife is from Dubuque and I recall one of the best shows my band ever played was in Davenport, so I have some fondness for your state.
