Mandolin Blues Book: 101 Blues Riffs & Solos for Mandolin
Master the blues on your mandolin.
Take your blues mandolin playing to the next level with the Mandolin Blues Book. A collection of 101 blues riffs and solos ideal for all mandolinists looking to get a good grasp of jamming the blues.
The book covers all the essential tools needed to play blues mandolin. Start by learning the 40 stylistic riffs and 25 one and two bar blues riffs in multiple keys, then move on to the longer 12 bar blues rhythm riffs and extended solos.
Most of the longer rhythm riffs and solos follow the standard 12 bar blues form, so they are readily applicable to the many mandolin playing styles, including country, rock, jazz, and bluegrass, to name a few.
To further deepen your mandolin skills, study the major, minor and blues scales and arpeggios as well as the library of mandolin chords and blues chord progressions in all 12 keys.
No book covers everything, but with some practice, you will be ready to take your mandolin, jam the blues with confidence, and show off your new skills.
