Thread Name: I bought a mandolin!
Subject: RE: I bought a mandolin!
Think of your mandolin as an upside down guitar. A guitar (in standard tuning) is EADGBE. A mandolin is GDAE. If you visualize the last four strings of your guitar (but upside down and inverted in pitch) you can translate chords such as G and C easily. D is another matter-but it's easy. Its the second fret of the first and last strings. Now you're all set to accompany almost any tune in G!
