Well, I finally did it: I, a fiddler, have gotten hold of a mandolin. Fingerings? No problem, it's all the same. But, for the life of me, I can't use a pick!
I try and try and try, but to no avail. I just can't control the tiny little thing at an speed whatsoever: I can't hit single the double-strings, I can't do tremolo, nothing.
What should I do? I was thinking of buying a fingerpick, but I don't know if one can/should use a fingerpick with a mandolin. Am I just going to have to bite the bullet and keep practicing until I can successfully pick out "yankee doodle" with a normal pick?
