I have been trying to find examples of Mandolin Players in these two Music Genres. But the guitar seems to dominate Jazz and Blues. I was just wondering what role would a Mandolin play in a Blues or Jazz Group? Everyone knows what role it plays in Bluegrass. I presume if you were going to play Jazz or Blues with your Mandolin you would use an electric. I own a Gold Tone Electric Mandolin. Like it very much. Just wondering if anyone had experience in Jazz or Blues on a Mandolin?
