I’ve been looking to buy a mandolin because I like the sound and have been itching to pick up a new instrument. At the moment I play, electric guitar, classical guitar, bass and piano. The goal is to learn some songs and learn the instrument of course, but also to try and incorporate it in some of my own music.
However, I really don’t like bluegrass (sorry to all the fans here). My main music preferences would be folk, indie rock, prog rock, classical, jazz and hiphop and I’m looking to incorporate the mandolin mainly in some folk-ish work of mine. Since folk is a pretty broad genre here is a song in the style I’d like to play
Would it be worth it to pick up a mandolin? And if so, would a oval hole or f hole suit me better?
20 years ago I used to listen to going to california by led zeppelin all the time. It puts me in some weird trance and makes me think I'm in some other time period (not the 70s when it was famous) - I'm not sure if it's the guitar work, the mandolin counterpoint melody (if that's even the right way to say it), or if I'm being affected by the lyrics-I dont even know what the lyrics are but maybe my subcoinscious is soaking it all in...
can someone opine on if this reminds you of some other time period, which time period, and why? is it some musical technique?
