Over the past couple of days, I have learned a few more songs on my mandolin. I have decided to dust it off and start playing once more. My fingers hurt typing this blog post, but in all reality it has been fun to kind of retrospect the years that I have had this wonderful instrument and not using it. Generally, when I have been playing the instrument, it has been good for my mental health. I have been strumming a few songs like Crush With Eyeliner, Father Sister of Thought, Mary Jane’s Last Dance, Radio Free Europe, Losing My Religion, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and of course Tetris Theme A! My new found love for my mandolin is kind of exciting in a way. I will post updates on the mandolin progress. My fingers really hurt as I said earlier, since the strings do double up, it is hard on the fingers. Comment on what I should learn to play next and if you want, I can post a video update with me playing some of these tunes for you!
