NGMS Monday Mandolin

Mondays, 7.45-9.00pm

Monday Mandolin is a five-week class open to everyone who plays mandolin. Each week we'll be looking at an aspect of mandolin technique, and one particular tune; see schedule below for further details.

Mostly everyone will be muted during the class except me. Every so often I'll unmute individuals to ask how they're getting on, and sometimes everybody for general chat. Details for joining the class are given below.

Class Schedule
Date Technique Tune
15/6 01 Reading Staff Notation [One] [Two] Winster Galop [MP3]
22/6 02 Chordal Patterns A New Fangled Tango
Wayfaring Stranger
29/6 03 Blues
We'll be mainly looking at the sheets Blues 3 and Blues 4, but if you're unfamiliar with 12-Bar Blues, also look at Blues 1 and Blues 2. All available from the Blues Mandolin page.
Tennessee Blues in D
