Re: Thinkin about learning to play the mandolin
I started playing mandolin in a church praise and worship group several years ago...guitar is my usual weapon of choice but we already had a couple of really good guitar players, so I bought a mandolin. It took me a little effort to learn how since the chords and fingerboard are quite different...but the sound is definately worth it! For basic stuff like chording and rythym it's fairly easy for a guitar player...but like a guitar it can be very difficult to master.
Middleaged Redneck sorta guy who refuses to grow up...passion for music, especially Southern Rock but like bout everything cept Gangsta/Hip Hop. Collect guitars, mandolins, and love to ride Harleys.
