    Not as exotic as my last few non guitar acquisitions, but I've got some preproduction and a recording coming up for the country/rock gig I've associated myself with. I don't like to half ass anything so I bought one of these for some authenticity.

    Washburn are known with their mandolins as well as their guitars so this made sense. And my limited experience with learning violin and erhu made the transition to 5ths tuning a little less strenuous. I'm still not a fan but I can't be assed tuning in 4ths. :lol:

    And of course the first thing I learned to play was none other than this song.

    Sounds good. With as small as the fretboard is, I don't think there is anything to be gained by tuning in fourths unless you have baby hands.

    Don't mind my complaints. :lol:

    I am getting used to 5ths more and more. And it's much easier than playing the erhu that's for sure.
