GUEST,bernieandred Tuning mandolin as guitar (31) Tuning mandolin as guitar 24 Jul 09

I have just bought a mandolin & wonder if anyone has info on tuning it as the top four strings on guitar. I understand session guitarist Tommy Tedesco used to do this for all stringed instruments. I realise that the purists will frown at this, but I just want to be able to add a different sound to my music without learning all new fingerings & tunings.
