Are your hands too small to make those insanely BIG chop chords on the mandolin? If you said yes, fear not. Vee have vays ov making you chop!

Here is a free video lesson I created to help solve this problem:


After you watch that, you might also want to see the full-length 31 minute lesson here which shows you more options to play all of the major and minor chords using similar compact forms.

I have taught small children and arthritic old truck mechanics and, for some people, that big Bill Monroe style chop is just not going to happen. These videos will give you a good solution which you can merrily play without shame.

If you like this stuff please share it with your friends on Facebook and Twitter. I really appreciate when folks do that.
