Mandolin Master Class MMC $25.00

This book is about concepts. It is not an encyclopedia of hot licks and tunes. It does have plenty of exercises, charts, and tables but the bulk of the book is about ideas. Ideas which you can use to improve your playing ability.In addition to the material on improvising there is a bonus music theory section which is valuable to any musician. The music theory section takes some of the mystery and confusion out of chords, scales, and music terminology and features 6 self-tests (with answers) to be sure you understand the information. But, don't worry. It is not all theory and technical stuff. A lot of what I talk about is about how to think and visualize what you are doing.
