Guitarist looking to learn the Mandolin. What are the main differences?
Hello, I've been playing guitar for about a year and a half, and I love it! The only problem I have is I can't lug around my big electric guitar everywhere to play when I have some free time on the road or at my Grandma's house or whatever. I recently took interest in Mandolins and admire their small stature and bright sound. I figure bringing a Mandolin along with me places wouldn't be as much of a hassle and it wouldn't weigh me down to much if I wore it with a strap. My concern is, my main musical interest lies in Beatles tunes, and Mandolin tab is really hard to find online. Can guitar tab somehow be transferred to Mandolin, or would I have to come up with all new tab? Is the Mandolin very different from the guitar? And lastly, is it worth it for me to buy a Mandolin? Thanks in advance!Are there any Beatles songs with mandolin?
The only one I know for sure is "Here Comes the Sun". Maybe "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds"? Any others?"Blackbird" for mandolin?
Is anyone aware of anywhere that I could get the chords for the song "Blackbird" by the Beatles for mandolin? I'm not a good enough musician to transpose it myself.So, I'm looking for songs like Rise by Eddie Vedder on my mandolin, any ideas?
I can handle some ukulele stuff as well, cause it's pretty easy to transpose. Thanks!!How to play chords on guitar?
Hi! I'm not a new musician but I'm new to chords and music overall without sheet music and such. I know you could say "do it by ear" but that's not exactly my forte. I'm trying to play Golden Slumbers as my first non-fingerstyle guitar song and I'm having trouble reading the chords. Do I just play the chord once, let it go throughout, or keep strumming it until the next chord? Do I play individual strings? Help I'm confused thanks. Here's the link to the song I'm learning: https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/t/the_beatles/golden_slumbers_crd.ht.
