How difficult is it to learn how to play the Mandolin?
A friend of mine is an accomplished Mandolinist. (is that a word? lol) He has on many occasion encouraged me to learn the instrument. I have limited musical experience, having only played the trumpet in middle school. How difficult is it to learn? What is the cost of such an instrument? Should I start by learning the guitar?What are some good 80's rock songs that are pretty much just barre chords on guitar?
