FREE MANDOLIN VIDEO LESSON
LESSON 1 - GETTING STARTED by Bradley Laird
In this free mandolin video lesson you'll learn the basic information you need to get started playing the mandolin. I discuss the parts of the mandolin such as the peghead, tuning machines, body, neck, fingerboard, strings, frets, tailpiece, and nut. This lesson also covers other basic elements such as proper playing position, how to hold the pick and how to attach a strap.
You might also want to take a peek at my beginning mandolin video series. Thousands of people have learned to play using these videos because they really work! In particular are my two most popular chord videos: Moveable Major & Minor Chords and Barre Chords & 7th Chords. If you need some help "in the picking department" Beginning Videos 1-4 might be just what you need! Click on the image below to read about them, watch free the demos and decide for yourself:
