  • April 06, 2007 The Bach is good.

    Many, many mistakes in both the notation and the tablature. I think this book would've been better if they'd included fingering numbers and left out the tab entirely. Or at least put the tab in a separate chapter. As it is there's just way too much page...

    flipping. The pieces aren't organized by difficulty, alphabet or key. They don't seem ordered in any fashion at all. They also don't align with the CD. Musically, the CD sounds "phoned-in" to me. I love the Bach, and imo the arrangements are well done. But taken as a whole this book seems like a half-hearted attempt at what could've been a truly great resource. They should at the very least re-issue it with corrections.

    Good booklet to expand your horizons on this fine instrument we call mandolin. It's not just for Bluegrass and this book will teach you this.
