The mandolin is a member of the lute family of musical instruments. It has 4 courses of 2 strings. The 2 strings in each course are tuned in unison, and the 4 courses are tuned in a succession of perfect 5ths (similar to the tuning of a violin). The mandolin is plucked or strummed by using a plectrum.
