Joe Carr - School of Mandolin: Basic Chords and Soloing

Pacific, Mo. — Mel Bay Publications, Inc. is proud to announce the publication of Joe Carr's School of Mandolin: Basic Chords and Soloing on their new "School Of" series.

In this new series, Carr introduces beginning to intermediate mandolin players to a variety of essential techniques using common instructional tunes. The object of the series is to ground players in good technique and to impart the essential skills required for continued self-guided development.

The tunes in this volume come largely from the American folk tradition. This is a great first tutor for mandolinists with general musical interests.

A self-taught musician originally from Denton, Texas who started guitar at age 13 and was inspired by the folk musicians of the 1960's, Joe Carr has authored videos on mandolin, guitar, fiddle, banjo, and ukulele. Joe is editor of Mel Bay's Mandolin Sessions webzine and a regular columnist for Flatpicking Guitar magazine and Mandolin Magazine.
