This mandolin edition includes the same 16 tunes found in Kaufman’s Blazing Solos for Flatpicking Guitar for One Player or More. It was originally titled "Twin Pickin", a less understood term meaning one person playing Harmony and the other the lead parts. The tunes in both editions are in the same keys so the books can serve as a foundation for fabulous twin-picking jam sessions in which either guitarists or mandolinists can take the lead and harmony parts. In addition to the tunes, Kaufman includes performance notes, guidelines for reading standard notation and tab plus his take on the harmonization process. A play-along CD with three tracks for each tune (Lead, Harmony, and Lead & Harmony) completes the package.
Songs Include: Beaumont Rag, Billy In The Lowground, Cuckoo's Nest, Drowsy Maggie, Fisher's Hornpipe, Forked Deer, June Apple, Katie Hill, Liberty, Old Joe Clark, Over The Waterfall, Ragtime Annie, Red Wing, Salt Creek, Soldier's Joy and Whiskey Before Breakfast.
