Steve Kaufman's amazing teaching method for mandolinists is now available on CD! His “Parking Lot Pickers” series, which has proved so popular with guitarists through the years, covers levels from beginners to advanced in a four-tiered system: (1.) Beginners will learn to pick the melody to become familiar with the tune in its most basic form. (2.) Intermediate players will develop facility with a series of great licks and runs that can be used in these or other tunes. (3.) More experienced pickers move on to advanced techniques, including full-blown solos for each tune. (4.) Each tune gets a final run-through, complete with hot endings. Mandolinists and fiddlers (the violin is tuned to the same pitches as a mandolin) can master these 20 must-play tunes from the standard bluegrass repertoire: Arkansas Traveler • Big Sandy River • Bill Cheatham • Billy in the Low Ground • Blackberry Blossom • Under the Double Eagle • Flop-Eared Mule • Fisher's Hornpipe • Forked Deer • Gold Rush • Old Joe Clark • Salt Creek • Soldier's Joy • St. Anne's Reel • Nothin' to It • Ragtime Annie • Red-Haired Boy • Sweet Georgia Brown • Turkey in the Straw • Whiskey Before Breakfast.
