I got a mandolin for Christmas and have been using Traditionalmusic.co.uk
to find songs to learn to play on the mandolin.
The trouble I'm having is... They have so many songs that I'm not sure which songs to try.
I like everything from old kindergarten songs (Yankee Doodle Dandy was fun to learn) to folk songs to religious songs (I've done Silent Night, Will the Circle Be Unbroken, and Amazing Grace). Ideally, though, I'm looking for songs with a memorable melody. Bonus points if it's one of the songs that includes a midi track or there's a good youtube video of someone playing the song on Mandolin.
This question had some cool answers
but I'm not limiting myself to bluegrass.
