This article in the Mandolin Chords series of theMandolinTuner focuses on the E7 Mandolin Chord.

I will give you ten (!) positions you can play the A chord on the mandolin, so get ready for serious practice.

The E7 consists of:

  • The root, which for the E7 chord is of course E
  • The third, which for the E7 chord is G#
  • The fifth, which for the E7 chord is B
  • The seventh, which for the E7 is D

As with all chords, there are many variants of the E7 chord for the mandolin. I have included nice-looking photorealistic descriptions of the most common ones.

I suggest you practice playing them one by one, till you feel comfortable with all positions, as I am convinced you will then have covered 99% of what is needed for the chord. Do you actually need to know all variants presented here? Not really, but as music is really a language, the more variants you know the easier it will be for you to play and express yourself.

The slide-show on the top, can be used for practicing, as you use it to practice a particular position, go to the next or previous chord variant.

Hope you enjoy it!
