Sheet Music

Physical item to be shipped. 8.5x11 comb-bound 26 page book. Transcriptions of melodies written in mandolin tablature and standard notation. Comes with digital version.

This is a book for mandolin players who are interested in old time fiddle tunes but don't know where to start. I’ve curated a selection of 15 tunes that I have played in jams in all the places I’ve been. I’ve written out a simple but accurate version of the melody I learned in jams and included some history of the tune and where I learned it. I’ve also listed versions of the tune that can easily be found on the internet.
