    Hi Beemer, and welcome!

    There isn't a huge library of books written soecifically for the mandola. However, one can sometimes have luck when searching by looking for books written for the identically-CGDA-tunes tenor banjo.

    In this case, I didn't find any books of Beatles arrangements in CGDA tuning, but I did find some are-bones melody-only tabs over at the Tenor Banjo Tabs site. Here are the specifically tenor banjo Beatles pieces, courtesy of Google, which on the site aren't gathered in one place.

    If you (or anyone) are just starting out, or even for those who have had a mandola for a while but are just looking for some ideas to start moving forward, I'm starting to post some resources over at the Mandola social group here on the Mandolin Café. The groups aren't necessarily that obvious, but can be found in general at the top of the page as the second option under the Learn/Listen button heating.

    Here's a direct link.

    Good luck!

    Hal Leonard published The Beatles for Mandolin book about ten years ago. I can't speak to how well its been received but it might be a good start. The tablature is going to match up for mandolin, mostly, I'd think.
