Mandolin scales
Like this post? Yes | No    

I play guitar, though about six months ago I got a mandolin and kindof taught myself all the chords and such enough to play it decently. Now I know that on guitar to solo there are penatonics and long runs along with scales - (a scale, b scale, c scale....) but I dont know how to solo on mandolin - ive looked all over the place - it would be great if anyone could tell me where i could find mandolin scales or whatever patterns are used for soloing - thanks!

You could just go the bad ass way and just forget about scales and theory and what not. or you could learn theory. There are formulas for all the different types of scales, and this will apply to all instruments, mandolin, banjo, guitar, ukulele etc. just pick up a theory book and learn from that. there is a book out there called "mandolin scales and studies" you could use that as a refrence to the theory, but scales wont help you unless you know the theory behind it. as for solos you just have to go with it, you know, just jam and find something that works, scales cant really teach you to solo, they are just guidlines.

sorry if im preaching

peace

Here's a few scales I found on mandolincafe.com

http://www.mandolincafe.com/neck.html

Hope they help you a bit. I would suggest buying a book full of all the scales and modes at your local music shop...it'd be the best.

Thanks, seems like a pretty good site! I'm learning some mandolin as well at the moment so this stuff looks interesting. I'm not as serious as to get a book, so it's good to be able to check out stuff online when needed.
