Mandolin Exercises For Dummies by Don Julin - from Wiley Publishing
Hoboken, NJ — Wiley Publishing has announced a Spring 2014 release of Mandolin Exercises For Dummies, by Don Julin.
The initial release will cover Great Britain and English speaking regions of Europe, followed approximately 30 days later by Australia, USA, and Canada.
This intermediate to advanced level mandolin book is a follow-up to the best-selling Mandolin For Dummies and is currently available for pre-order at amazon.com.
Mandolin Exercises For Dummies contains hundreds of exercises designed to build left and right hand strength and coordination, while expanding your knowledge of the fingerboard.
Each exercise is shown in standard notation as well as tablature and is demonstrated in 161 downloadable audio tracks.
The exercises are based primarily on scales, arpeggios, and chords with a specific right hand picking pattern (tremolo, jig style triplets, down-strokes, etc.) applied to each exercise.
Chord workouts incorporate rhythm styles used in swing, jazz, Latin, ballads, and pop. The book finishes with ten tips for mandolin players on increasing speed and ten tunes representing a large range of styles.

like to add this one to my collection. Only my location is in the
countryside, and the local bookshop (I use it to support local trade)
will be able to use the number to order it for me when it's released.
If you hit the amazon link in Rodney's post and scroll down it'll have the isbn. Actually there are two ??? I'm sure this will come bound as the original one was … a trip to an office supply place and you can have it get a bindingectomy and then have it wire … not comb!!! … bound so it'll lay out flat. (You can get about 4 pints on it that way.)
