I was messing around with the ukulele over the summer and learned some chords. Truth be told, it is naturally a very charming instrument. Transposing a few tunes I know over to the mandolin, I was struck at how the easygoing vibe transferred over. I was wondering if the mandolin is ever used in Hawaiian music. It seems like a natural complement to the uke ... bright and brassy chords to go along with the ukes unique sound. Any experience or insight?
