Open Chords on the Mandolin:



Location: R4

Instructor: MURPHY[M]

Style: Folk New England Québecois (French Canadian) World

Drawing inspiration from bouzouki style accompaniment in the Irish music world, this mandolin approach is based less on triads and more on simple lines with drones. The chord shapes are easy and are a great basis for the kind of strong rhythm playing that is essential in accompanying so much fiddle music.
