Adam Steffey - My Approach to Bluegrass Mandolin - Acutab by Adam Steffey. For Mandolin. Boxed, Methods. Acutab. Bluegrass. Beginning. 2-DVD Set. Duration 260 minutes. Published by Acutab Publications (MB.DAS1).
This 2 DVD SET From AcuTab contains 4 Hours and 20 minutes of insight, instruction, tunes, tips and technique from this 5 time IBMA award-winning picker. On disk 1, AcuTab's John Lawless leads Adam through a discussion of several topics, including chop rhythm, right hand attack, note spacing, tone/volume, practicing and building speed - with demonstrations of each in turn. Adam then spends roughly 45 minutes describing and demonstrating how you can build a bluegrass-style solo based on the basic melody of a song. He takes 3 common jam tunes and shows how to start with the simple melody and build a solo- in several keys. On both disks, Adam takes great care to present the material in a way that even new pickers can benefit from it. A printed booklet (tab/standard) is included.
