Get a Free Mandolin Lesson. Here's how...
Posted by Bradley Laird
What happens when you take an old fiddle tune, play it on the mandolin, add some nifty embellishments and then slap on a layer of jazz chords? Great music... that's what!
Would you like to try out one of my Premium Download mandolin lessons? You may have worked with my YouTube freebies and the free mandolin lessons on my website but perhaps you haven't tried one of the "real lessons".
Here is a short demo pulled from the complete 26 min. video lesson:
If you'd like a free copy of this complete download lesson all you have to do is send me an email, put "Mississippi Sawyer" in the subject line, and I will send you back a link to download the complete lesson for free. The complete lesson contains:
• 26 min. QuickTime video teaching 2 versions of the tune and the chords
• Two MP3 practice tracks
• PDF file with the tab and standard notation
I'll send you a download link for the zip file which contains all of that. (I'd suggest you use your computer, not an iPad or smart phone) You'll have a lot of fun learning those jazz mandolin chords even if you already know the basic melody. If you like the way I teach and see the value in good mandolin lessons which you can watch over and over until you get it (try that with your local music store teacher) I hope you will try my other lessons. The complete list is found here on my website.
If this is just a little ahead of your current ability you need a good beginning course in playing the mandolin. Here is my Beginning Mandolin Instruction Course. That will get you going pretty quick. You'll also find my free lessons over at http://www.bradleylaird.com. Enjoy!
