I'm really not sure if this is the proper place for this, but I'll move it if necessary.

I got a mandolin about a week and a half ago, and I've decided to actually learn how to play it. Does anybody have any good websites with songs or lessons on them?

Don't get too excited.
The mandolin is mostly played to accompany your voice. You just play any singing melody and sing allong with it. You play it as you would a guitar, except you trill it because apparently mandolins don't keep the sound for too long.

A lot of meditereanean folk music uses mandolins. Think spanish, italian, french and greek songs.

I want a Mandolin because I'm hopeless at hitting the right notes when I sing.

Its tuned upside down, compared to a guitar.

e - Highest string
A
D
G - Lowest string

www.mandolincafe.com is an awesome site. It has tons of tabs (most are folk tunes) but it does have some other songs transcribed for mandolin.
Nor less I deem that there are Powers
Which of themselves our minds impress;
That we can feed this mind of ours
In a wise passiveness.

I've played mandolin for 5 years now and it's simply great. Keep to standard mandolin tuning though, changing to guitar is cheating! Learn the chords and you'll be doing great in no time.

Just an upside down guitar. Not much different, I guess.
