About this tab version
This is the entire song for standard mandolin tuning. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Rise by Eddie Vedder (Mandolin)
This song is essentially just variations of the G, C and D chords.  It's not difficult to play, it's just
confusing to read at first. You may need a Youtube video to figure out the strumming pattern, it’s all over
the place and there’s a lot of versions, but the chord progression is below.

Start by just plucking the G chord. There's various different ways of playing it, but this is the simplest.


Chords are as follows. Each one only requires 2 fingers! Most of the time you're only moving one finger
around. Best advice is go slow, try playing each chord once in order with the lyrics and you'll start to
recognize the progression. Then learn a strumming pattern that works for you.
/ = slide up.
\ = slide down.

The tuning on this is different but I don't know what it is

EDIT: I actually had my mandolin tuned to a different tuning. I'm just starting to learn still, so sorry 'bout that.
