Possibly, but don't forget you also get incredibly proficient guitarists like Joe, who I believe struggles with some smaller stringed instruments! I suppose I meant it more from the angle that it was a forced learning process for Felder - I can't imagine he was a free-flowing on it as he was with his guitar, more that he just knew what to do.

Now that someone has mentioned it, I do recall Felder saying in his autobiography that he learnt mandolin on the quick to secure one of his pre-Eagles gigs.

Oh totally, he wouldn’t be free flowing and wouldn’t really be great free style for a while. But I’m sure he could pick up parts on it pretty fast.

Interesting points all! But however, I'll admit, I'm kinda bummed that it went SO off topic. Hopefully at least a few more will post their favorites before this thread becomes absolutely dead.
