ISBN 063403006X. With guitar tablature. 8.25x11 inches.

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.

  • October 06, 2007 Great fun and very useful.

    I am a beginner. This assumes you know mandolin basics and lets you jump right into good solid bluegrass pieces. My only suggestion for improvement would be to have cuts on the CD's where you can play with the band at a slightly slower tempo (in addition to the...

    super fast renditions already present) so those of us whose fingers can't yet "fly" can have the fun of playing with the band.

  • January 18, 2004 Great Series

    I'm a guitar player who just got her first mandolin for Christmas. I'm finding these lessons easy to follow and can't believe how quickly I'm picking things up. I appreciate hearing the intermediate and advanced sections and have something to strive for. I can already tell...

    that this was well worth the money.

  • August 02, 2002 Great introduction to Bluegrass Guitar

    I have been playing for 20 years, mostly blues and rock. When I became interested in bluegrass, I did some research and found that Steve has some of the best learning materials available. I honestly feel like I have learned more in the last 6 months than all of the...

  • July 21, 2001 great method, well worth the money

    Steve teaches on three levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced. It's a painless method for learning songs and progressing from the beginner level to advanced. This is the best mandolin book/cd set i own and I have way too many.
