Monroe Instrumentals: 25 Bill Monroe Favorites

From the Father and inventor of Bluegrass Music — 25 important transcriptions including Bill Monroe classics Bluegrass Stomp, Bluegrass Breakdown, Raw Hide, Big Mon, Jerusalem Ridge, Cheyenne, Monroe's Hornpipe, Lonesome Moonlight Waltz, more (see complete listing below). Excellent primer on Monroe's compositions and soloing approach. Tunes and solos every Bluegrass mandolinist should know. Taken from classic instrumentals recorded over a span of 40 years, from the early 1940s to the early 1980s. Great "fake book" for bluegrass students to learn original melodies or to study Monroe's playing style. The melodies were played by mandolin, fiddle, twin fiddles, or triple fiddles, and are grouped accordingly. Generally included with the fiddle melody is a transcription of the mandolin break. These transcriptions, along with the discography, will be an important resource for any student of bluegrass music. Great collection! Includes music and tablature. Transcribed by Todd Collins. 104 pages. $14.95 plus postage.
