New to the Mandolin scene, have played acoustic guitar for about 5 years, I'd gauge myself an advanced beginner/intermediate (on guitar). I'm looking for a teacher to get me started with a proper foundation. I want to learn in the piedmont blues/bluegrass, old timey genre ala Barry Mitterhoff of Hot Tuna.
Does anybody know anyone in the New York City area/Long Island? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.....
