The Mandolin Primer Book for Beginners (Video & Audio Access) by Bert Casey will quickly transform you from an absolute beginner into a mandolinist with a full understanding of the fundamentals & techniques of playing bluegrass mandolin. This course includes scales, exciting and easy-to-play song arrangements, and playing rhythm with the mandolin “chop”. This course contains over 90 minutes of HD video instruction presented in 16:9 wide-screen format using close-ups and split screens to make the movements of each hand perfectly clear. In addition, the large on-screen tablature has a moving pointer that indicates each note as it’s being played. Once you have memorized a song and can play along with the video, you can start practicing with the practice tracks. This is a unique practice tool that plays full length versions of all the songs at five speeds along with an acoustic band. This is the missing link between playing the mandolin and jamming with others. This course contains all of the information you need to play the mandolin and it’s right at your fingertips. – Watch & Learn, Inc.
