Mandolin Dead Man's Tuning Vol. 2

Winston-Salem, N.C. - Author, musician and mandolin instructor Willy Minnix has announced the release of his new book Mandolin Dead Man's Tuning Vol. 2: English, Scottish and Irish Ballads.

"I remember the day so clearly when I started working on this book. I went to the Library in Tappan, New York and found a song book with a bunch of Child Ballads. I fell in love with them, and am so happy to pass on my love to others," said Minnix.

"This book is over 175 pages of information on Ballads, with tablature and sheet music in Standard, ADAD and GDGD tuning, and chords for most of the songs. There should be something interesting for everyone."

This time author Willy Minnix focuses on ballads from England, Scotland and Ireland. With over 25 ballads included in this volume, you are sure to enjoy learning how to play songs that have stood the test of time!

Some of the songs included are Black Jack Davey, Barbara Allen, The Bonny Ship the Diamond, Arthur McBride, King Arthur, Robin Hood and Little John, Mary Hamilton, and many, many more!
