Beginners Plectrum Exercises 01

In order to play tunes on the mandolin or tenor banjo it is necessary to get some control of the plectrum.  The exercises on the Word page (attached below) should help.  Just repeat them as much as often as you find  useful. 

Remember the rules for tablature? 

·        String 1 = G

·        String 2 = D

·        String 3 = A

·        String 4 = E


 Study the diagrams attached carefully before you start.
