But I don't have time to learn mandolin as well!What would you do?youtube.com/watch?v=Y883OAj7Ghk

For sure ... plectrum or fingerpicks it's doable. Use it as an ear exercise and just do it ! It's in Dm ... harmonic. Dm Gm A7 Bb ... it's actually pretty simple.

That sounds like a song called "Indifference". Nice song, but for me, I play it on accordion.
