Modern Mandolin Method Grade 1 Book/CD Set by Joe Carr

Pacific, Mo. — Mel Bay Publications, Inc. has announced the release of Modern Mandolin Method Grade 1 Book/CD Set by Joe Carr.

The mandolin is used in nearly every type of music today so it is a great choice of instrument whether you like jazz, folk, classical, country, bluegrass, rock, blues, Irish or many kinds of world music.

Much of this music is available only in standard notation so that is where this book starts; TAB comes later. By learning the basic information presented in this volume, you will be prepared to approach any style.

This book introduces the student to the instrument, explaining basics such as tuning and how to hold the instrument. The student is introduced to notes on each string and various left- and right-hand techniques. Chords, scales and arpeggios are introduced and students begin applying their new skills to real world repertoire in a variety of keys.
