    Shouldn't be too long until the print-on-demand version is ready; maybe another week! Meanwhile, the online version is available, for those who prefer to use it on their devices. I prefer a print book, but am guessing there will be more and more music instruction books designed for online use, using the Kindle Reader interface, as it catches on.

    Yeah, I like to print mine off and bind them myself so any print on demand version is great for me. I really look forward working through them! Thank you for creating more studies for the Mandocello!

    It's a great time to be a mandocello player! Thank you August, and people should also check out John Goodin's Winter Suite for Mandocello.

    One tip about using the online version--The design of the Kindle Reader software is that you have to set the screen width to "maximum' -- it's in the KR font control. If not, the staves will appear narrow on the page. With screen width set to maximum, the staves will extend all the way across the page, using the entire width of your screen. As more people get accustomed to music books formatted this way, I'm sure this will seem more familiar!
