Crosspicking Mandolin Series

Mickey Cochran is a talented mandolinist, guitarist and author of the Crosspicking Technique book from Mel Bay Publications.

I invited Mickey to introduce Mandolin Cafe readers to his crosspicking technique. Out of our correspondence we agreed to develop a series of lessons packed with his crosspicking techniques and tips. The following information is based on excerpts from his Mel Bay book. I think you'll find his ideas, writing and teaching method an inspiration.
