AFM Vol 2 for Mandolin (Book & Audio)
Volume 2 can be used as both as a follow up to Volume 1 and for intermediate players who are already experienced with the mandolin. Using clear illustrations and lucid explanations, the authors review skills such as efficiently holding the mandolin, fretting, picking technique and creating good tone. Students learn techniques such as slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs, bar chords, chop chords and 7th chords while progressing step-by-step through over two dozen universally played jam tunes. The very listenable, high quality, download-able audio included with the book allows students to play along with the tunes to simulate jamming. Also included are folded scale exercises, and common sense tips from the authors’ long experience teaching and performing.
