    Thanks for a very informative and well planned out video. I am recently converted from guitar and feel as if I found my real muse with the mandolin. I was happy to see that I had already figured out one or two of your chords but found one that I wasn't using so... score one for the F...!

    Can't wait to sit down with the mandolin and work through this one. By the way, it's nice to see someone else playing on an A style!

    Thanks again for your fine work!

    Agreed! I have viewed this tutorial many, many times, and I learn something new almost every time I view it. Fantastic!

    One observation for other relative newbies...Something we rarely hear is that 5-3-0-X is a perfectly acceptable F major chord! Also, it sounds just fine when used in the intro & chorus of LMR. If you're having trouble cleanly fretting 5-3-0-1, try 5-3-0-X (just make sure to not play the E strings). Actually, IMHO, 5-3-0-X / 5-0-0-X sounds a little darker to me without the high F, and I think it therefore goes quite well with the minor key of the song.

    Dale - Thank you again for this great tutorial - It's one of the best out there! I can't wait to hopefully see more from you.

    Well Dale, you've gone and done it now... After watching the video last night and sleepin' on it, I went up to the park today to see what stuck... about 90%..! Your thoroughness on that video really sticks to the cortex and after sitting and playing through it again just now (this time with mando in hand) the other 10% just dropped right in.

    Thank you for this great video, and I am looking forward to more from you! I just played along to the video of the actual song and while I am not all the way up to speed yet, I can't believe how "decent" I sound after such a short time.

    A testament to you sir.

    Great post Dale,
    It's very much appreciated.
    Any chance you could look over the two similar Rod Steward songs Maggie May and Mandolin Wind and do a tutorial on those? I'd even buy it.

    Dale, thanks for the great video tutorials. I'm currently scratching my way through 'the Nine Pound Hammer' one. I just can't work out the timing from around where the slide cord ending with the third fret on the A string and the fourth fret on the D string occurs. From there to the end is a bit of a jumble for me but I'll keep trying. Thanks again.

    tough song to sing and play, especially that little walk up right before vocals start

    One of the best and easiest to pick up vids I have seen. I am a rank newbie on Mando but a bassist-acoustic guitarist for about 35 years. The video was as good as having a guitarist buddy sit across from me and show me a song we needed to play in rehearsal. I picked up 80% in one pass through and am such a novice I added 2 chords to my rep with this video. I wish I could instruct as well on bass. My kids would be bass monsters by now! Thanks and I echo the Maggie May comment! Great tune.

    I cannot wait to try this out once I actually get my mandolin and practice a little. THIS is the song that made me fall in love with this instrument. I figured after nearly 20 years of saying that I'm going to learn to play someday that I would actually start.

    Great tutorial - nice job! You explain in enough detail without belaboring the point. One of my favorite tunes. Clear, concise, exceptional! Thanks.

    Dale,
    Thanks for the tutorial. I've had my mandolin for a few days and this is one of the first tutorial vids I've really gelled with. Great song, I'm a long time REM fan.

    Just another novice (and that's generous) who found the tutorial VERY helpful. My wife yelled down last night "what's that your playing, I recognize it, and it ACTUALLY sounds good" !!!

    The cats didn't run away either....

    Now, singing it AND playing ... that's going to take a while...

    Between this tutorial and a slight modification to it I made after watching Peter Buck closely (he lifts his second finger on the F chord rather than adding the pinky) I'm actually playing this song recognizably! Just thought it was fitting that the first song I learn on my mandolin be the song that inspired me to play in the first place! This newbie is very happy....
