A note on the recordings that accompany the books: Our main publisher, Mel Bay Publications, has decided to stop including CDs with their instructional books. As long as our supplies last we'll continue to sell books with CDs. We also hope to be able to provide CDs in the future to those of you who prefer them to downloads. (This will not affect the book/CD sets that Musix publishes, like "Gypsy Swing and Hot Club Rhythm," which will continue to be sold with a CD included.)

Play guitar too?

We also have a great new collection of solos for guitar entitled All Time Favorite Parking Lot Picker’s Guitar Solos by Dix Bruce. Like the mandolin downloadable recordings, all the solos are on songs from the Parking Lot Picker's Songbooks. Click here for a list of solos and ordering information.
