A Book Of Advanced Concepts & Techniques For Mandolin Players ...

"Mastering Mandolin"

"Wayne has created a very clear picture here for mandolin playing in a variety of styles. Thank you for a well thought out book that answers many questions we all ponder daily. Now let's all get busy!!" ... Mike Marshall


The Conclusion of this power-packed three book mandolin method begins with a set of warm-up and right-hand exercises. From there it continues with a study of advanced harmonies and provides mandolin chord forms in all twelve keys. In-depth studies of important forms such as the 12-bar blues and "Rhythm Changes" are included. Other advanced harmony topics are included, such as chord/melody playing and chord substitution. The book also takes an exhaustive approach to melodic studies, covering the modes of the major scale, the pentatonic scales, the chromatic scale, the whole-tone scale and improvisation with many transposable scale forms and example tunes given. This is the perfect launching pad into a lifetime of great mandolin playing.
