    It would be nice if those estimated dates were correct but we all know that's often not the case. The day after this was published our contact at Elderly said 2-3 weeks was what they thought but now I see they've listed January 31 as the likely date. Of course that could change as well as Elderly has no control over it. It'll be available when the publisher delivers it to the outlets. If we think of it may try to drop by and check up on it at next week's NAMM Show in Anaheim as suspect it'll be there on display.

    Spoke with Elderly today; tomorrow (31-Jan) is still target arrival/ship date. There are 27 pre-orders, likely many are site denizens right here.

    Estimated arrival date is now Feb. 15 but could be even later. This is an issue relating to delivery from Hal Leonard, not Elderly.

  6. The following members say thank you to Mandolin Cafe for this post:

    I agree
    If anyone labors through translating tab to notation let us know please!
    Perhaps note readers can crowdsource funding for a standard notation version?
    Was the old version notation?
    As a fiddle player first I never bothered learning tab.

    Should be clear why from the comments made in the discussion right here. The Dawg is a sharp businessman. Has his own arrangements.

    It would rather depend if the material/styles covered are of interest....

    FWIW I have had the 'original' Dave Peters edition for some time, and if you are into Bluegrass/Newgrass/Jazz type material it is a very good resource. If you are in to Celtic or other styles, probably not so.

    I just want to say that I took lessons with Fred in Los Angeles. He is a great teacher and a great person. Everyone I have ever met who knows him thinks highly of him, too. His instruction books are great!!!

    [QUOTE=Mandolin Cafe;1622865]Fred, thanks for weighing in. The quote "I'll let the author tell that story if they wish" I made is in reference to a different book, not this one. Has to do with a story from another era even, a book that was a draft was shared with another musician (both still active and performing) and years later authored under the borrower's name. Oops. Both those folks have posted on this forum in the past but don't think that story will get told.

    <snip, snip, snip>

    I suspect that the story from another era refers to one of the first Roanoke bluegrass festivals, 1965 or 1966, I don’t remember which. A young David Grisman was carrying around the draft of a mandolin instruction book that he had been writing, and, as I recall, he showed it to lots of people. That book was never published in his name, but reportedly an instruction book by a different author that came out some years later was based on his draft. At that festival there was a lot of excitement about Grisman’s mandolin playing, incidentally, with some of the greats suggesting that he would be the next big name in the mandolin world.
