OMG: Does anyone here know how to play the mandolin and would be willing to help a beginner?


  1. I play - what are you interested in learning? Chord shapes? certain songs? Do you own a mandolin?

    1. Awesome! I'm renting a mandolin and I was formally taught piano many moons ago. As to what I want to learn, mostly chords/notes so I can play sheet music I guess.

  2. Sounds good. Well if you still want, I would be happy to show you what I know... I'm just self-taught and taught by playing with other musicians over the years so although I read sheet music, I don't do a whole lot of it. I can definitely help you with generalities like major, minor, diminished, augmented chords and how to look at the mandolin to build chords (although you could easily figure this out, if you already know piano). Also some bluegrass tunes if you'd like.
    Send me a message at if you want!
