Chords and Rhythm Studies
This encyclopedic chord lesson will provide hours of amazing practice sessions and should be in every mandolinist's DVD library. Mike Marshall's comprehensive, step-by-step method teaches you every chord in every position on the mandolin fretboard.
Mike starts with the most basic chord shapes, then works his way through each possible inversion as you change positions and move up the neck. He shows you how to play all the major and minor chords as well as major 7th, dominant 7th, 6th, flat 5 and other useful chord shapes. Through careful explanations and systematic exercises, he helps you build strength, knowledge and accuracy on the mandolin fretboard.
Understanding the theory behind the music will give you an unprecedented command of your instrument. This lesson will enable you to incorporate rhythmic and harmonic concepts to bluegrass, jazz or any other style you wish to play.
