    Default Online Resources

    Hi, Everyone:

    I'm looking for online mandolin technique or practice resources. i have lots of repertoire stuff, but am more curious about things like appreggios and music theory. As long as it's online and you recommend it, I'll check it out. Pay or by donation is okay, but free is great.

    You could try banjobenclark.com, he's got a good music theory series

    Other instruments: way too many, and yet, not nearly enough.

    Check out Matt Flinner online courses. Right now he’s running a double stop and scales intensive...lots of exercises with scales, double stops, arpeggios, etc and then how to think about applying them to a tune and your playing.

    Click on my signature, or check out my Classifieds/Mandolin Accessories ad https://www.mandolincafe.com/ads/144367#144367 for what's free (now).

    No instructional material per se (meaning, ya kinda gotta already know what you're doing), but lots of arpeggios.

    I've enjoyed www.tunefox.com

    Not lessons so to speak but I've picked up a lot there.

    Arpeggios (with a bit of music theory built in):

    Mike Marshall's Arpeggio Workout

    Sample:



    I also really like Tim O'Brien's arpeggio exercise, which is printed material and free, no video or sound. Maybe someone will offer it here, if not I'll upload it later. Used to be hosted at mandozine.

    There are so many resources available - great resources - and already listed above.
