One day I went to the Folk Shop here in Tucson with the intention of leaving with either a Banjo or a Mandolin. After playing one of each (hours can go by in that store if you're not careful), I left with a Mandolin. Nothing special, just a Mandolin that was cheap enough to try out to see if I like it, and nice enough where it is playable and sounds good. When I got home I looked up Mandolin chords online. At first it seemed like a whole new world, where anything I had ever learned about making music on a guitar went right out the window and I had to start fresh. Then something amazing happened; I realized Mandolin chords are just like Guitar chords, only upside down and backwards. Makes sense right? After that, I was playing it like a Guitar, but upside down and backwards. The result: Have Mandolin, Will Travel.
