I ask often myself a question without find answers.
With the mandolin you can play very fast for solo (little instrument)
The Guitar solo, using the range beetwen the strings (in fourth no like in fifth like us.) so can play different solo for guitar
How can adapt solo in rock music on my octave mandolin ? ( i must play pentatonic scales ? on the high or the bottom of the neck ? ....so)
I think it's easier for someone who know playing guitar but when you don't know playint this instrument, and just CBOM.
How start ?
