This book presents transcriptions of David Grisman's solos and accompaniment patterns from the CD Shady Grove. The Shady Grove recording contains some wonderful performances of old-time American music by David Grisman and Jerry Garcia, two of American music's greatest players. It is a vibrant collection of wonderful traditional American songs, from a great variety of genres, played in a style closely based on their traditional sources. All of the solos can be played on the standard mandolin, including one written for mandola and one for banjolin (mandolin-banjo). These transcriptions will provide insight into the art of accompaniment mandolin playing as well as soloing. Performance notes by the transcriber are included.

    These are solid and elaborate tab transcriptions, without any issues. I am a long time mandolin and guitar tab based learner, especially in bluegrass and roots music.

    Although the music score is properly written the tablature is not and I found it very hard to follow. If I didn't know how to read music and relied on the Tabs I would be completely lost. Therefor I would not recommend this book.
