Beginning concepts include reading music and TAB, basic strumming patterns, alternate picking, tremolo, slides, and bluegrass and blues styles. Intermediate topics include hammer-ons, pull-offs, cross picking, rolls, and more. The book concludes with advanced concepts like advanced harmonies, 12-bar blues, rhythm changes, chord-melody playing, modes, improvisation, and much more. Complete Mandolin Method breaks the age-old dilemma of dry, intimidating, and confusing method books to provide a step-by-step and enjoyable way to play. An MP3 CD with demonstrations of the examples in the book is included.
