Back to:

Great Mandolin Pickin’ Tunes book and CD set by Dix Bruce (pub. by Mel Bay) Part of the new QwikGuide series that's one heck of a good deal: book plus CD for a retail price of $5.95! We just have a few of these left. The publisher recently had Dix double the number of tunes in the book and published the expanded book/CD set as "Favorite Mandolin Picking Tunes." Click here for info.

Dix arranged a wonderfully eclectic group of tunes for beginning and intermediate mandolin players, in standard notation and TAB, to cover a cross section of styles. Includes 23 favorite tunes including bluegrass, jazz, swing, Irish, classical, Italian, Christmas, gospel, Cajun, ballads, jigs, rags, breakdowns, and more. The included CD has all the tunes recorded at slow and regular speeds. It's great for teachers to use with students to give them a wide view of the wonderful world of mandolin.
