ASAP Bluegrass Mandolin: Learn How to Play the Bluegrass Way

This book/2-CD pack by Eddie Collins is designed to help budding mandolin players discover how to find their way around the neck using common double stops, develop creative back-up skills, play solos to vocal tunes in the style of Bill Monroe, make up their own solos, and more.

Includes two instructional CDs: one plays every example in the book, and the second contains 32 songs performed by a bluegrass band with the mandolin parts separated on the right channel.

Author Eddie Collins resides in Austin, Texas where he teaches music and performs. He has numerous recording credits, including his latest all-instrumental solo project, Rapid Transit (2008). He holds a Master's degree in education and formerly taught teacher education courses at California Lutheran University. An accomplished guitar and mandolin player/instructor, he has performed and conducted workshops throughout the United States and Europe.
