Probably should have mentioned "Mamma Mia" on mandola.

Thank you so much! DOT Jr. is gonna love this. He's been playing mandolin for two years. He really loves it, but relates more to younger players, as opposed to the crusty olds that play bluegrass of whom I am so fond. Her choices of material are gonna be perfect for him.

DirtyOldTown: Tell DOT Jr to check out Tristan Scroggins, if he isn't already following him. It's admittedly bluegrassy.
