"Ob La Di Ob La Da" or "And Your Bird Can Sing" would lend themselves nicely to mandolin, I think, not to mention more obviously strummed ukulele-rhythmed numbers like "Michelle" or "Girl". (The REAL challenge would be something like "Helter Skelter" or "She's So Heavy"!)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

I think songs that work well on the uke would probably work on the mandolin too (though I've never played one). So, Honey Pie, Girl, Michelle, Ain't She Sweet. Also Dance Tonight and Ram On by McCartney.

Hey, I play mandolin too!

My favorite Beatles tune to play is Norwegian Wood, it's in D.

Let me know, if you're interested I'll list the chords. It's fairly easy.

How do you see the song? I see the whole
Memory Almost Full album in my nightmares, a complete waste of £1.

When I first bought it at a used CD store, I was disappointed. I don't know what I was expecting, but did not find it up to the high Macca standards I was used to. Then, a few folks on this site encouraged me to stay with it. After a few more listens, I grew to enjoy the album. I still do not count it among my favorites, but I do enjoy it...'Dance Tonight' included.


Good luck with learning the mandolin, ...ontherun . Keep us posted on your progress!

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.
