This is the 18 page PDF document I originally prepared in 1988 for one of my live mandolin workshops. You can use this "handout" to follow along with my GrassTalkRadio Bonus Podcast #10
The document contains information valuable to mandolin players but is also useful for players of any other instrument. Topics covered include:
- Cardinal Rules of Pickin'!
- Two String Rolls and Synocpation
- Liszt's Hand Exercises for Musicians
- Finger Substitution Exercises
- 6/8 Time and Tunes
- A Good All-Purpose Lick
- Practice Smart Tips (13 of them)
- One Page Intro To Pentatonic Improvisation
- A Few Thoughts About Picks
- And more!
I hope you enjoy the bonus episode and the "handout" from the workshop. If you like it tell your picking friends. The price is set to "pay whatever you want" but tipping is appreciated.
