This methodology book designed for the intermediate to advanced mandolinist offers you, as a mandolin player, a new voice. Or, if you're already crosspicking, many new ideas can be added to your arsenal. Each song includes a preparatory study that allows you the opportunity to gain a solid footing before attempting the piece itself. These studies can be applied in other areas as backup ideas, song ideas, or take offs for improvisation. Styles discussed are: Two-String, Bluegrass, Fiddle, Classical, and Jazz/Ragtime. Written in tablature.
