Thread Name: Violin and mandolin
Subject: RE: Violin and mandolin
Fiddle and mandolin are tuned the same (at least in standard tuning). The differences are dealing with frets, the pick, and chords. Chords are supposedly a good reason for taking up mandolin since it makes finding harmony parts easier.
