Improving mandolin technique does not have to employ mind-numbing drills and exercises. Using Homespun's trademark Licks-ercises concept, Dix teaches licks, kick-offs, endings, solos and complete tunes that will hone your skills and build repertoire. Starting with simple "call and response" phrases he outlines "Nine Pound Hammer" and "More Pretty Girls Than One" using a plethora of fill-in licks. After some music theory you'll learn "Amazing Grace" played in closed positions so you can move it to different keys up and down the neck, plus "magic chord shapes," double stops, and other important techniques. You'll also build arrangements for "In the Pines," "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," and other bluegrass and old-time classics. Note/tab included as PDF. 120 min.
