Using clear illustrations and lucid explanations, the authors guide beginning mandolin players through necessary skills such as efficiently holding the mandolin, fretting, picking technique, creating good tone, chop chord and open chord backup. Students learn the techniques while mastering over thirty common jam tunes, which they can practice with using the accompanying audio.
