    My Local Music store rarely has something useful , but they do have an Account with Mel's distribution.

    so thanks for the Heads Up, I'll have them get a copy.

    Mine is ordered as well. Don's instructional material at the Mandolin Symposium and in Mandolin Magazine is top notch. You get the also get the added benefit of supporting someone who logs on to the Cafe and adds depth to the discussions here.

    Ordered mine from Mel Bay. Missed the nice 40% discount, but I'm still stoked about this book. Between Mandolin World News and Mandolin Magazine and his terrific CDs, I've been gobbling up everything Don dishes out. This is going to be a fun winter with all of these tasty Appetizers to relish!

    Been using this book quite sometime. Through Don's diction, it is my understanding that he is re-naming the songs mentioned to avoid copyright issues?

    Does anybody have a list of the actual songs he is notating?
