Includes standard notation, tablature, chord diagrams,lyrics, playing tips, and more. Each song is presented on the CD at slow and regular speed. Split track mixing on the recording allows the student to hear just the melody (while reading along in the book) or just the rhythm section, orboth for maximum flexibility and specific study. Finally the band plays several choruses and you play all the leads. Songs may be repeated, at slow or regular speed, as many times as you wish in order to perfect phrases, melodies and solosin a band context. Includes special section on how to play rhythm back up chordsand get that swing pulse on mandolin. Potential for improvement is unlimited. Guitar version also available. We'll jam all night long!
