    Default notes on the mandolin fretboard

    Here is a diagram of the mandolin fretboard with the accompying notes on the staff. The formatting is not perfect but it prints out quite nicely.
    I think you'll find this layout easy to follow. I hope that some will find it useful.



    My daughter did this for me. Kids can be very useful.

    Your quite welcome.
    I could not find anything on the internet that would help with matching fretboard positions to the accompyning note on the staff.
    So this is what we came up with.
