Find Roy Smeck recordings, Hoosier Hot-Shots. Plays like a mandola or mandolin chord-wise if your hands stretch well. Fixture in Dixieland jazz. Just did sound for a dixieland fest in Spokane and heard lotsa tenors. Very much alive. Fortunately you don't have to try and sound like an Earl Scruggs - do your own thing. A thin flatpick and a bit of mando- style tremelo nervous hand twitch is cool. Bon chance!
