      Note from Mel Bay's GM. Marilynn's statement in the book.

      A Note on Tablature:

      Mandolin tablature is included for nearly every exercise in this book. I’ve done this because most of these techniques will be useful to many types of players, and I want to allow for the broadest possible access to this material.
