    Stumbling On - John Goodin

    John Goodin has announced the release of Stumbling On, a collection of 47 original compositions for mandolin presented in standard notation, with guitar chords for each tune.

    Many of the tunes in the collection include a basic harmony part. Using two mandolins (or other melody instruments) and a guitar (or other chordal instrument) allows three or more players to enjoy the pleasure of group music-making.

    The book contains 18 reels (meant to be played as fast or slow as the reader prefers), 10 jigs, 10 waltzes, 6 "walking" tunes, one march, one rag and a schottische.

    Please note: print copies are available for $25 for a limited time and only for customers in the U.S. Otherwise, PDF copies are available for $10.
