Anyone interested in learning to play mandolin can pick up this book and get started right away. This well-paced, comprehensive method covers everything from basic to advanced techniques. Beginning concepts include reading music and TAB, basic strumming patterns, alternate picking, tremolo, slides, and bluegrass and blues styles. Intermediate topics include hammer-ons, pull-offs, cross-picking, rolls, and more. The book concludes with advanced concepts like advanced harmonies, 12-bar blues, rhythm changes, chord-melody playing, modes, improvisation, and much more. Complete Mandolin Method breaks the age-old dilemma of dry, intimidating, and confusing method books to provide a step-by-step and enjoyable way to play. An MP3 CD with demonstrations of the examples in the book is included.
