My New Toy
« on: November 28, 2013, 10:27:25 PM »
I've wanted one for a long time and finally caved. I basically said F**K it. I bought my 1st Electric Mandolin. I can't play a lick but who cares. It's so pretty.

Thanks. Ill let you know how it sounds and plays when I get it.


That other band I love (Yarn) has a full time Mandolin player named Andrew Hendryx. He only plays the Mandolin. He plays it like the lead guitar. Aside from your traditional acoustic Mandolin he also plays an electric Mandolin. He has a signiture Mandolin. 

Check out Andrew in action.

It's a rock 'n' roll mandolin indeed. When Andrew Hendryx plays his electric mandolin it sounds like an electric guitar on helium.
