Mandolin Primer (Book



This book is a result of my developing a well thought-out lesson program for mandolin over the last twenty years of teaching. In this 96 page spiral-bound book, the material is laid out in a graduated fashion. There is an even mix of common fiddle tunes and bluegrass breaks to singing pieces. There are numerous transcriptions of Bill Monroe solos, but most arrangements are put together by me for teaching purposes. Also included are scales, arpeggios, pick exercises, chords diagrams, tag endings and a chordal position playing page. This book includes both standard music notation and tablature. For an idea of the quality of the transcriptions, you can download PDF samples on my transcription page.
