We get contact requests for charts and materials on 5-string (and 10-) mandolins, and regretfully, have to report there really isn't much in traditional print. That said, anyone with a Windows based (XP, Vista, Windows7) would do well to acquire a rich software resource from one of our long term sponsors, the Groveland Software Labs "JazzCittern ModeExplorer."
Like our exclusive FFcP approach? There's even a section on incorporating this into your fretboard understanding.
How about a chord "calculator" instead of just a chart? How about exploring the chords in context, and using a graphic, colorful organic display? You won't get these from paper, but you will in this excellent computer resource. You couldn't even get a private lesson for the mere $29.95 this program costs. Plus you have this to revisit and dig into any time you want.
Take a quick tour through the features on the Groveland website, and after you've done that, come back here and get caught up on some of the articles author Craig Schmoller has contributed to our Tips and Tricks columns.
