This course will be a boon to mandolin and bouzouki (octave mandolin) players who want to improve their technique, develop ideas and learn new repertoire. Tim brings his brilliant musicianship to bear as he teaches Celtic, bluegrass and original songs: "Down in a Willow Garden," "The High Road," "Lay Down Your Weary Tune," "One Girl Cried," "More Love," "The Kid on the Mountain" and "Travellers." The tunes can be played on either instrument and switching between them Tim demonstrates right and left hand techniques, the advantages of each for soloing or song accompaniment and how to get the most out of their textures and tonalities. Intermediate. Note/tab included as either booklet or PDF file on the disc. 115 min.
