Customer Rating:   6 Reviews Write a Review


Famous Mandolin Pickin' Tunes - QWIKGUIDE (Formerly Great Mandolin Pickin' Tunes and Famous Mandolin Pick..)). Composed by Dix Bruce. For mandolin. Saddle-stitched, Solos. Qwik Guide Series. Bluegrass, Country and Play Along. Beginning-Intermediate. Instrumental solo book and accompaniment CD. Introductory text, standard notation, mandolin tablature and chord names. 32 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.98420BCD).

ISBN 9780786649853. With introductory text, standard notation, mandolin tablature and chord names. Bluegrass, Country and Play Along. 5.5x8 inches.

Dic Bruce is a musician, writer, and 'journeyman mandolinist' with a strong belief in teaching a wide range of material, from bluegrass and jazz standards to classics, waltzes, polkas, and other ethnic music. The choice of material in this 5 1/2" by 8" QWIKGUIDE reflects that philosophy. This book is not meant to be a mandolin method but a collection of fun tunes to play. The selections in this book are in no particular order, although the easier tunes are grouped toward the front. Performance tips are given at the front of the book for each tune. All the tunes are in notation and tablature. The accompanying CD is set up so that you can play along with each tune at both regular and slow speeds. You can also adjust the balance control on your stereo to hear both mandolin lead and accompaniment, just mandolin lead, or just accompaniment. Also available in Japanese from ATN, Inc.

    I love this little book. It is so nice to sit down with for just a quick practice session. Some of the tunes are really pretty. Its small size makes it easy to carry.

  • February 20, 2009 some great mando pickin tunes!

    This looks like an excellent book. As a raw beginner, i haven't played much from it yet, but down the track it will come in very handy. If you want some great mando pickin tunes, it's most definitely recommended.

  • April 18, 2008 From a novice point of view - fun

    The nice thing about this booklet is the recorded songs are done in slow and fast speeds. As a novice I found this very helpful. The songs are fun to play and not too difficult even for a beginner.
