Tuning the Mandolin

From: Beginning Mandolin by Sharon Gilchrist

Sponsored By

The mandolin can be a tricky instrument to tune and even more difficult to get to stay in tune. In this lesson, Sharon shows you hot to get in tune with an electronic tuner. For example, she suggests tuning the first of each pair of strings to the tuner, and the second of each pair to the first. Once you have the first string in tune, lower the second string and bring it slowly up to pitch until the two strings sound like a single, clear pitch.
