Re: How difficult is it to learn to play the mandolin?
Hi Hannah and welcome to the Café. With a well set up instrument, a little determination and some practice time, you'll be up and running in no time at all. It takes a while to develop some muscles to do some of the chord stretches so don't expect to play like Chris Thile or Bill Monroe overnight. Besides, its all about the music making process. Have fun.
There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and, after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second. Logan Pearsall Smith, 1865 - 1946
