subject: “Mandolin Players, Own Your Fretboard”
Do you hear others play music you only wish you could replicate? Are you taking ownership, that is to say full advantage, of all that your instrument can do for you? As a mandolinist, I have heard talented players spin magic from their instruments that I envied and wanted to be able to do, myself.
But what was their magic? What was the equation they used? I really wanted to know!
I set out to conquer this dragon and put together a method that can move players like myself toward that point of inspiration. It’s easier than you think.
With this method, you can unlock the secrets hidden in the very frets between your hands!
- Play over the entire range of your fretboard
- Make full use of the areas you currently access
- Break free from dependence on open strings
- Play, transpose, or improvise in any key
Hear what the seasoned pros have to say:
Ted Eschliman of JazzMando.Com:
…this is another one of those “leap ahead” methods of study that can open up your fretboard in ways you never dreamed.
Don Stiernberg, professional performer:
It plugs several gaps in my thinking about where things are on the fretboard of the world’s greatest instrument, particularly as pertains to minor tonalities. Clear definitions, concise explanations and graphic representations of the ideas and sounds combine to give us rapid access to “the good notes”. Bravo!
You can be at any level of proficiency from beginner to advanced to make use of this method!
