Mandolin FAQs

  • Is the mandolin difficult to learn and play?

    For a complete beginner the mandolin may seem difficult to play, but by sticking to a dedicated practice schedule you should see progress over time. People who have experience playing other stringed-instruments will probably find it easier to pick up.
  • How long does it take to learn the mandolin?

    Learning to play the mandolin is possible within around 3-6 months if a dedicated practicing schedule is followed. For people who already have experience of playing other instruments such as guitar this time may be reduced.
  • How much should I pay for a good mandolin?

    A good-quality mandolin can be purchased for under £200. Some high-end mandolins sell for thousands of pounds, but these are designed specifically for professional musicians who need optimum performance from their instrument.
  • Do you strum or pick a mandolin?

    The mandolin can be played by either strumming or picking, and it is suitable for playing both melodies and chords.
  • What is a good mandolin for beginners?

    Some good beginner mandolins are manufactured by Tanglewood, Epiphone, and Washburn.
