I'm glad you saw the humor in my post!

I saw Mandolin Orange at Old Settlers last April, and they were maybe my favorite - the Lone Bellow's performance might have been more exciting. Anyway, I love their music. (I think the NC governor's mansion vid has been posted here - if not, go find it!)

I'm pretty squarely in the "not the arrow" crowd. Yes, it helps to have an instrument that is the correct type and set up/voiced right if you really want to mimic a specific player, but the technique is going to be pretty effective on lots of instruments, and the D-18 the OP has in his list should be good for a start. (I'd put mediums on if not already.)

P.S. Maybe start saving for the Pre*War, or at least a nice old D-28!
