The accompanying audio tracks demonstrate each song
so you can get an idea of how the song sounds. Most of the tunes are played slowly and then at a more moderate tempo with rhythm guitar. Each song in the book shows the chord progression written above the music so that you can easily learn them or teach the chords to other players.
The arrangements run the gamut from downright easy to moderately challenging. There are tunes in this book for players of all skill levels
. If you began the learning process by working through my "Mandolin Instruction Course"
, or my beginning video lessons, you should be ready to enjoy playing these mandolin songs.Several of the tunes in this collection are presented as 2 different versions.
First, there is a basic version to help you “get the gist” of the melody and then a more advanced, embellished version to add to your collection of mandolin licks. Some of the tunes, especially the bluegrass songs which may be sung in a variety of keys, are arranged in more than one key so you can learn to play solos in multiple keys.
