Unlock the secrets of moving chord rhythm for bluegrass, blues and swing. Using eleven tunes in six keys including old-time fiddle tunes, bluegrass instrumentals and swing progressions, Joe Carr shows how to create interesting moving chordal backup for practically any song. Mandolin players can now duplicate the 'every-two-beats' chord style associated with western swing guitar. A single-note solo is included for each tune. Chord arrangements are shown in diagrams, standard notation and tablature. Companion CD included.
