Building Technique Through Exercises and Melodic Studies
Mike Marshall's two-lesson set will benefit every mandolin player, from beginners to experienced professionals. He shows you how to become a better musician through proper technique, problem solving, and a systematic exercise regimen.
Mike starts with the basics: How to hold the instrument, play with correct posture, get great tone, and eliminate tension and other impediments by using proper hand and pick positions. His exercises will help give you the strength, speed and dexterity you'll need to develop a strong and accurate right hand.
Mike's powerful "Fingerbuster" exercises will build your physical abilities while increasing your command of the mandolin fingerboard. He methodically works with you on scales, chord shapes and arpeggios, providing workouts on every string and in every position. You'll learn to visualize the fretboard as a geometric pattern and turn these exercises into a unique musical experience.
