Mandolin Beginners Workshop

  • This event has now passed

The mandolin is a popular instrument used in a range of styles including country, bluegrass, traditional folk and Irish music. It is great as a melody or rhythm instrument and this workshop will introduce both styles of playing.

It will look at basic technique, simple tunes, chord shapes and progressions, and playing as a group and is suitable for those who have some basic experience of stringed instruments (such as guitar, ukulele, banjo, bazouki, violin) and who can play basic open chords and a few scales or tunes.

An ability to read tablature is useful but not essential. Please bring a mandolin if you have one, or contact if you need to borrow one (limited numbers available).

Tutor Paul Roberts is an experienced guitar and mandolin teacher and performer, who has played in a range of rock and folk bands, in folk clubs, festivals and for ceilidhs.
