In the hands of great players including Carl Martin, Charlie McCoy, Yank Rachell, Howard Armstrong and Johnny Young, the ma ndolin was a convincing member of the blues ensemble.

All of thes e player s styles are featured here as well as bluegrass music innovator Bill Monroe, Jethro Burns (Homer and Jethro,) Tiny Moore (Bob Wills Texas Playboys ) and Johnny Gimble Special sections cover basic blues shuffle rhythm, creatin g your own blues solos, turnarounds and introductions. Music is written in tab lature and standard
