After a week of vacation I can now play the notes in the G Major Scale and Chords D, F, C, G and A. I can also tune my Mandolin since it goes out of tune every time I play it. The place I bought it from said it would hold a tune well, but the instruction video I bought said that mandolins go out of tune easily so I'll have to tune it every time I play. Either I got a crappy mandolin, or the guy at the store was just saying anything to get me to buy it. This model does sound good once it's tuned and I'm playing. Not bad for my first week! Now classes start and I'm back to work on Tuesday, so my progress might be slower over this month. But it's fun and sounds nice to my ears.
