a way with the mandolin

“I leave you,” he said, “well content that you have the two accomplishments, my son, that are most needful in a Christian man, skill with the sword and a way with the mandolin. There be other arts indeed among the heathen, for the world is wide and hath full many customs, but these two alone are needful.”

From “The First Chronicle: How He Met and Said Farewell to Mine Host of the Dragon and Knight” in Don Rodriguez by Lord Dunsany.
