Mandolin (and resonator mandolin, banjolin, mandola, octave mandolin, mandocello) is/are my main instrument(s) now for bluegrass, gypsy jazz, swing, old time, Irish trad, Itallian (folk and classical) and Nordic folk (though my 10 string Hardanger fiddle gets the most play in that last genre).

The best musicians in any genre I've played with are the gypsy jazz people. Bluegrassers are a close second.
Hmm, actually I was making no assumptions at all, but merely responding to your critique with my own. But thanks for the curricula vitae
