    Smokey Mountain Christmas for Mandolin

    Book with Listening CD

    Level: Beginner/Intermediate

    This wonderful collection gives the mandolin player a wide variety of material from which to choose. Well-known soloist Steve Kaufman includes beautiful, meaningful carols arranged specifically for mandolin. The book includes both a simple melody edition and an intermediate advanced solo version, all in both notation and tab. The mandolin backup parts are discussed in the first section of the book, and chord symbols as well as guitar tablature are provided for the backup parts. A 'must-have' book for the mandolin player! In notation and tablature.

    The companion CD is designed as a listening recording first and an instructional tool second. All 24 songs are played through at least three times. The first time is the basic melody as it appears in the book followed by the intermediate version and another improvised version, making this both a listening tool and an ear training tool. Recorded Direct to Digital in true stereo sound.
