The Mandolin is a small lute like instrument with a typically pear-shaped body and a straight fretted neck. The mandolin is the soprano member of the mandolin family, as the violin is the soprano member of the violin family.
The mandolin can be one of the easiest instruments to learn when playing basic chords and melodies. There are only four courses of strings. Most of the open-position chords only require two fingers which you can learn with just a flat-pick. The melodies fall right into place because it’s tuned in fifths. It’s considered a melody instrument simply because the melodies are all easily within reach. It is a perfect instrument to start out with, without any background in music.
