Sarah and the Mandolin
— n a plucked stringed instrument related to the lute, having four pairs of strings tuned in ascending fifths stretched over a small light body with a fretted fingerboard. It is usually played with a plectrum, long notes being sustained by the tremolo
This afternoon, my niece Sarah celebrated her 17th birthday. She received this musical instrument as a gift from her parents. She has already learned some chords and played them for us. I’m looking forward to her first concert/recital.
