Steve Kaufman's popular " Parking Lot Picker's " lessons now include a series especially for mandolinists. Beginners to advanced players learn 20 favorite traditional tunes with his four-tiered teaching method. Beginners learn melody; intermediate players master licks and runs;experienced players learn advanced techniques. Steve finishes each tune with a final run-through, including endings.
Since the mandolin and violin are tuned alike, this series is also great for fiddlers who know the basics of bowing and other elementary skills.
Songs: Arkansas Traveller, Big Sandy River, Bill Cheatham, Billy in the Low Ground, Blackberry Blossom, Under the Double Eagle, Flop-Eared Mule, Fisher's Hornpipe, Forked Deer, Gold Rush, Old Joe Clark, Salt Creek, Soldier's Joy, St Anne's Reel, Nothin To It, Ragtime Annie, Red-Haired Boy, Sweet Georgia Brown, Turkey in the Straw, Whiskey Before Breakfast.
"Homespun always puts out quality products and this is no exception. There's plenty of solid mandolin ideas here, as well as good advice, a thorough knowledge of the repertoire, and a devotion to the melodies. Highly recommended for beginning and intermediate mandolin players." -- Bluegrass Unlimited

I attended your workshop in Avon, NC in January.
I purchased "Bluegrass Guitar Solos Vol 3" while I was there. Initially I thought the price was a bit steep. However, when I compare it to the price of lessons ($40/week) and the fact that it takes me about a week to really learn one of the intermediate arrangements, it's a real bargain!
I gave up my lessons soon after the workshop, and have been using your material exclusively.
While I doubt I'll ever be a performer, the sense of accomplishment that I feel when I am able to play a new arrangement is immeasurable.
Thank you for producing all this great learning material.
