Learning the mandolin should be required for every violinist: it has the same tuning and is a chordal instrument. This book provides violinists with the skills and knowledge needed to master the mandolin; it also teaches ways in which mandolin concepts can open up one's violin playing. The book offers key insights into the similarities and differences between the two instruments so that violinists can quickly learn to play the mandolin. The book and companion CD cover basic fingering and picking techniques and then move through exercises and pieces drawn from the classical, swing and folk genres.
