DVD - Mike Marshall's Mandolin Fundamentals for All Players - Vol. 1: Building Technique
Mike starts with the basics: how to hold the instrument, play with correct posture, get great tone, and eliminate tension by using proper hand and pick positions. His exercises give you the strength, speed and dexterity you'll need to develop a strong and accurate right hand, and his powerful "Fingerbuster" exercises will build your physical abilities while increasing your command of the fingerboard. He methodically works with you on scales, chord shapes and arpeggios, providing workouts on every string in every position, and you'll learn to visualize the fretboard as a geometric pattern. Note/tab included as either booklet or PDF file on the disc. 75 min.
