The “Note Explorer” mode shows you mandolin notes for beginners or even advanced skiers. Click Find Note and explore the notes on a virtual music sheet by moving the cursor up or down. At the same time, the blue dots on the virtual mandoline fingerboard show you where you would find these notes on a mandolin. Or you can approach the whole thing the other way round and by clicking on different positions of the fretboard you will find the note you need. This note is then also displayed on the score sheet. Listen to the notes, play around with them and try to remember the respective positions on the mandolin fingerboard.
If you already know a few notes, try the “note trainer” mode. Click on training, then on start and look at the mandolin fingerboard. The blue dot on the fingerboard is the note you want to guess. This workout has a timeout and is pretty fast, but the more you play, the better you will! The Mandolin notes trainer evaluates your results after every mandolin training and shows you your successes and challenges. You can see your current results with previous comparisons and your progress in reading and recognizing mandolin notes directly. Dordern yourself out by beating your last personal best time!
