In order to compliment the Mandolins tone, I use a well used accompanying procedure on accoustic guitar which makes an attractive sound combination. I think my student will agree. We are concentrating on "first position/open" chord shapes to match favourite songs which went very well. When Monica, to her satisfaction, has fully mastered all the "Open" chords I would like, with her permission, to progress further onto the second position chords and some soloing in the Country and Western style. All this would be done @ a comfortable pace.
