John McGann Education Videos Re-Released on Homespun
Woodstock, N.Y. — Homespun Music Instruction has announced the availability of two important video instructional products from the late John McGann.
John McGann's Rhythm Mandolin: From Bluegrass to Celtic to Swing and Sound Fundamentals: Touch, Tone and Technique for Mandolin had been out of print and become increasingly difficult to obtain since his untimely passing in 2012.
Homespun has made both videos available as a download, available from Mandolin Cafe On Demand. Both lessons contain a PDF file of music transcriptions.
The videos can be purchased and downloaded separately or as a 2-lesson package at a reduced price.
The first ever Associate Professor of Mandolin at Bostonís Berklee College of Music, McGann was a National Mandolin Champion and a recording artist for Green Linnet Records, Narada, Rounder Records, Flying Fish, East Side Digital and others. He composed, arranged, produced and recorded with many of the leading lights of contemporary bluegrass, Celtic and jazz. Part of his legacy included some of the brightest stars in acoustic music that studied under him at Berklee.

The pdf files are on the DVD - at least on the ones I have
Has this missing PDF issue been figured out yet? I'm on the verge of buying these videos here at the Cafe, but missing DVD notation files is a situation known to frustrate me a lot. I'm a super-visual thinker and comfortable with music notation, so seeing notes written a staff does a lot to help me follow and remember stuff.
The PDF files for these courses are available on the digital downloads.
If you already own these titles as digital downloads, please log in on the cloud player here: https://player.platformpurple.com/
