Subject: Mandolin Instruction Vids-Suggestions?
From: Áine
Date: 27 Jun 01 - 02:38 PM

I'm hoping that some of you mandopickers can help a newbie to the instrument out here. I'm having tons of fun with my mandolin; but I'd really like to advance from the strumming chords and picking 'Yankee Doodle' stage now.

I searched a five county area up here in North Texas, and I still can't find a teacher. So, I'm hoping that you all can suggest some good instructional videos or book/cd combos that could help me out.

Thanks in advance, Áine

Go to a website - - elderlyinstruments.com - -. They sell all sorts of videos, you might be able to get what you wnat there. Also, do you live near a college or university? If you do, they might have a School of Music and a music librarian. University libraries are open to the public and you might find some help there. Check with the reference librarian to see if they can be of any assistance.

I hope this helps and welcome to the world of picking good music!

Thanks so much, guys! I've gone to the Elderly site and I'll be ordering the Bill Monroe tapes ASAP. And thanks for the 'welcome', Walking Eagle - you made my day.

Now, any pointers from y'all about how to learn to do the tremelo? I've tried to start slow and get a little faster, but I still feel pretty spastic (and it sounds that way, too!).

Thanks again everyone, Áine
