I had a good mandolin lesson today. I didn't learn any new songs, because I wanted to concentrate on some of the ones I'm still working on without getting overwhelmed. Instead, we talked about some technical aspects of the instrument (mostly related to strings) and jammed on the couple of songs that I've memorized.
After my lesson, I bought a set of Elixir strings, which I might be able to find some time to put on Loretta this weekend. Before my lesson, I lost my favorite pick.
