Learn To Play Blues Mandolin, Vol. II

Homespun Tapes announces the release of Learn To Play Blues Mandolin, Vol. II, Steve James with Del Rey, guitar.

Volume II brings you more of the funky, old-time songs that made his previous DVD so popular.

The keys of G and C, introducing blues scales, chord patterns, walking lines, arpeggios, accompaniments and variations are covered in this release.

Steve takes his repertoire from the great jug and string band era of the early 20th Century and passes along material from some of the old mandolin blues masters he learned from - Charlie McCoy, Howard Armstrong, Yank Rachell, and others.
