Upgrade your bluegrass mandolin skills from your couch.
Several months of valuable bluegrass mandolin lessons for the intermediate to advanced player are programmed into one easy-to-navigate DVD so you can advance your playing skills in front of your TV. An interactive DVD teacher patiently guides you through each step while interactive menus provide instant access to all lesson chapters.
Bluegrass Mandolin Intermediate to Advanced demonstrates songs slowly, phrase by phrase, with split screen close-ups so you can see exactly how to play them. Bass and rhythm guitar play-along tracks are provided for songs at normal speed and at a slower speed so you play along. A handy booklet includes exact transcriptions of playing techniques in tablature.
After a brief review of tablature, you'll begin using every inch of your mandolin fingerboard, mastering the skills that will place you in complete command of your instrument. You'll learn music theory, major and minor scales, bluesy licks, flashy endings, pentatonic scales, arpeggios, and scale sequences. You'll develop your improvising skills by combining these scales with advanced techniques in second, third, and fourth positions as alternate breaks to a variety of bluegrass favorites.
