I've been a guitarist for a while and I've always been big into rootsy sort of music, and stuff with a lot of folk influences. But lately i've been getting more into true folk and bluegrass, and Mandolins seem like they'd be a lot of fun to learn.
I was talking to a friend of mine after a jam session, and he said he had played one before and that they're pretty easy to learn. He said since i was able to pick up ukulele so quickly mandolin shouldnt be a problem. Thing is, none of the local stores really carry them so i cant find any to try out.
Does anyone have any experience with them? Are they really that easy to learn?
