Tremolo is the rapid repetition of one or more notes. It is a commonly used technique for mandolin as once the string is plucked, the note decays rapidly, and by playing the same note many times very rapidly, the illusion of a sustained note is created.
Although common in Italian and classical music, tremolo is equally used in bluegrass (take Bill Monroe's Kentucky Waltz as example) and appears in jazz, choro, old-time, many European folk styles and many other music forms favored by mandolinists.
