5.0 out of 5 stars A strong foundation for mandolin players! 18 Jun 2014
By James - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a Kindle down load which has mp3 files which can also be downloaded from their website which was about half the price of the print version. This book is a sequel to "Mandolin for Dummies" and is an exhaustive course on the structure of music, especially scales, with a multitude of exercises to help the reader improve their playing of the mandolin. Some of the printing of these scales were small and difficult to read on the Kindle, so owning the print version might be better. mp3 files were given to demonstrate the proper technique and the author emphasized the importance of listening to them first and always using a metronome when practicing, which I didn't do. Videos of the same scales on youtube.com are available and give visual examples not available in this book. I supplemented my reading of this book with those videos, when and where I could find them. My mandolin playing improved dramatically after just doing some of the beginning exercises which taught the major scales and how they fit with the chords of a song. A great resource for mandolin players!
