Marla Fibish - Irish Mandolin Basics, Tunes and Technique
Irish Mandolin Basics - Tunes and Technique is the title of a new instructional DVD just released by Bay Area celtic musician Marla Fibish.
The DVD gives practical instruction on right- and left-hand technique, rhythm, phrasing and musicality, taught through nine session-friendly traditional tunes. Each tune is first played at a lively tempo, then taught phrase-by-phrase shot close-up, and finally played three times through at a moderate practice pace.
