My wife brought me this beautiful intrument from Bolivia and I started playing it.  As soon as it met my hands I played the mandolin part for "Here Comes The Sun" in the waiting lobby at the airport. I fell in love with this nylon stringed machine right of the bat! I can not put it down.

As soon as I found a little free time I thought I would play my first solo piece on this instrument over and over. And I would put in the chat "Hey, Check out my Charango." But no one cared. No one even complimented on the fact that I could figure out a stringed instrument and play songs on it made from worlds away.  
It is so nice and strange. The root of the little guitar is in e. The e is surrounded by 8 other strings. Its like a 12 string ukulele but with ten string and a longer neck. The E strings are in the middle! So strange! And it has a fat and thin string for the E and they are Fat and thin Nylon.  

Of course me being a hillbilly and all I figured out some mandolin and banjo parts.  However I have found that you can play just about any classical piece on this thing. BACKWORDS! In fact if you figure out a scale on this,you can play it on a some what weird harmonised  down scale. This thing is nuts! Tuning it sucks! I love this fucking thing! BYE!
