Mandolin is a most versatile fretted instrument. Like the violin, there is a classical repertoire and approach to learning technique; and also a wide range of ethnic, American, blues, ragtime, jazz styles that fit well. You can play lead like a fiddle, and, rhythm like a guitar. We’ll learn some of the fundamental finger exercises, scales, and closed chord shapes to either get you started or round out your mandolin endeavors. We’ll also learn a few tunes along the way. You’ll have enough here to work on for months.  Handouts provided and recording devices recommended. 

Check out Ron's website, Learn Your Frets. It is an invaluable resource for stringed instrument players.
