How to play 2 finger mandolin chords?
Why can't I play these mandolin chords?
Okay, so I have been playing piano for a while now, and decided I would try mandolin. I just got my new mandolin and have it tuned properly (at least I think so) and am trying to play a G chord. So I put my fingers on the right strings and frets, and then I strum. But it doesn't sound like a G chord; it just sounds like when I strum without my fingers on the strings at all. Is it because my fingers are too big? Is it because my mandolin isn't tuned right? Or am I just playing the chord wrong? Thanks! :) I tuned it, and played the chord exactly like you said, and it still isn't playing.How does one play mandolin with guitar?
I play guitar and have taken up mandolin a few months ago. I've learned a bit of how to play chop chords, the two finger chords, and the c scale. But anyway, I have a couple of recorded acoustic jams and want to add mandolin but not entirely sure on how to correspond it with the guitar, what should I play in order for it to sound good? For example, lets say I have a chord progression with a basic "boom chuck" strumming method of C-G-C, how would I spice that up with adding the mandolin? How should I play the mandolin over it? I'm sure there's no right answer, but whatever, I want a general idea.How do you figer out chords on the mandolin?

I have no history in music and I have never played a string instrument, but I do have a good ear for rhythm and very good hand-eye coordination. I wanted to take up an instrument and the mandolin appealed to me VERY much. With my background, would the mandolin be difficult or would I be alright with practice.
