Book with online audio. The new standard for mandolin instruction! Master teachers and performers, the authors have crafted Volume 2 as a follow-up to Volume 1, and for intermediate players in general. Using clear illustrations and lucid explanations, they review skills such as holding the mandolin, fretting, picking technique and creating good tone. Learn techniques such as slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs, bar chords, chop chords and 7th chords while progressing step-by-step through over two dozen universally played jam tunes. The audio lets you play along with the tunes to simulate jamming. Also includes folded scale exercises, and tips from the authors' long experience teaching and performing.
