Please help guys…
There’s a lot I understand. I can do more than a beginner on a mandolin… but here is where I struggle…
I’m a bluegrasser… and eventually want to play with others… but when they say “I’m playing in G, or C,…” I’m lost…I mean, I get that from a guitar standpoint… but not from my standpoint as a mandolin player…
What do I need to do to understand/memorize what key each fret is in if I slide down to it? If a guitar player says, we’re playing in C, walk me through what to do?
If I’m playing a scale in A (the 4th fret from the neck?)… and move that scale down a string and play it… does that change the key? If so, how does that work for chop chords?
The majority of my playing will be rhythm/chopping… If I’m playing in a certain key, I just move my chords to that fret, right?
