Mandolin Training Camp - Brad Laird

Mandolin Training Camp - Brad Laird

Brad Laird has released Mandolin Training Camp, a follow-up to his Mandolin Master Class that has been favorably received by the mandolin community.

Mandolin Training Camp provides 84 pages of information and exercises to help mandolin players gain control over the instrument. All exercises and examples are written in tablature. No standard music notation provided.

The exercises presented range from easy to extremely challenging and progress in an organized way to lead the student to a better understanding of the fingerboard while building speed and dexterity.

All of the exercises follow a consistent chord progression and the Audio Companion CD provides chord backup for all 12 major keys. A record keeping section allows you to track your progress with each exercise.
