    Great News!

    Besides Amazon and the publisher you could probably buy directly from Don .. giving the guy who did all the work a slightly larger piece of the pie.

    Get thee to donjulin.com. I emailed Don about availability ..... on the other side of the pond the book should be out in 2 weeks ... here in the Untied Snakes of Asparagus it'll be another month.

    Hey folks, Mandolin Exercises For Dummies is scheduled for a April 28 release in Great Britain. Some of you may not know that this global company is actually located in the UK so the release books first in the UK. It takes about 4-6 weeks to put them on a boat headed for America, pass customs, be delivered by truck or train to the distribution centers, and then to stores. I do sell them direct from my website http://www.donjulin.com and I am happy to sign them when you buy them direct from me. I also make a bigger cut if you buy from me. I will also be presenting workshops around the country and always look forward to meeting mandolin players in person. Below is a list of workshops scheduled for this year. Thank you all again for your support, and a special thank you to Scott and All of the fine folks here at the Mandolin Cafe.

    Amazon.com claims that Mandolin Exercises For Dummies is "in stock" and ready to ship". Funny thing is that I have not even received my copies yet.

    OK, so before I buy, tell me how this book is different from the mounds of instructional stuff I have from Niles H. Mel Bay, Butch Bladassari, etc.?

    Mind you, I've never been known to pass on spending more money on instructional stuff, but I'm getting to the point of diminshing returns! That's the only reason I am asking.

    Chris .. or anybody else with the same question ...

    Go to amazon.com and bring up the book. There's a feature that lets you "Look Inside" and you can wander around and see if it makes sense to you. Then buy it from Don.

    Hi Don,

    will you do an International Order to Australia for the Book Exercises for Mando Dummies.
    Have your other publication from Amazon.

    Sure, the shipping is quite a bit but I will ship to Australia. These books are distributed in Australia so you may be able to find one for much less over there.
