i think you're pretty spot-on here. my father bought me a mando when, after he had bought one for my brother, he misinterpretted my polite interest for jealousy.i have large, but not fat, fingers with which i somehow play bunched-up guitar chords. this feat does not translate well to mandolin. also, big dudes looks even goofier playing the old glorified ukulele.
