Mandolin Method Complete is a step-by-step, fun, and  enjoyable approach to learning how to play mandolin right away, applied  to a wide range of music styles and genres. With useful chord form and  fingering illustrations and helpful author notes and tips throughout the book, the instructional resource effectively  breaks the age-old dilemma of dry, intimidating, and confusing method  books. Beginning concepts include reading music and TAB, basic strumming  patterns, alternate picking, tremolo, slides, and bluegrass and blues styles. Intermediate topics include hammer-ons,  pull-offs, cross-picking, rolls, and more musical styles. The book  concludes with advanced concepts like advanced harmonies, 12-bar blues,  “Rhythm Changes,” chord-melody playing, modes, improvisation, and much more. Four appendixes are included for  reference, titled The Elements of Music, Guide Fingers, Chord Forms, and  How to Practice. An MP3 CD with demonstrations of the examples in the  book is included.

The National Guitar Workshop is dedicated to bringing the best in music  education to guitarists, bassists, keyboardists, drummers, and vocalists  regardless of style of music or level of ability. Their highly  developed courses foster meaningful experiences through performance instruction and supportive learning environments.
 
As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving the environment, this book is printed on 100\% recycled paper.

Mandolin Method Complete (00-39091) is now available for $29.99 at music retail stores and at alfred.com/guitar.
