Mickey Cochran – Introduction to the Mandolin
Jun 26 2016
This DVD offers a unique approach to learning mandolin. The focus is on developing good habits from the start: proper positioning, proper picking hand, proper fretting hand, how to properly hold the mandolin all of which will make you a cleaner, faster and more efficient mandolinist.
Yet, this DVD also discusses proper mandolin set-up which is often overlooked by the beginner and, due to this, the beginner finds the instrument frustrating to play and may even possibly become discouraged from learning. Know all the features of your mandolin along with its construction … realize the importance of proper bridge placement so that your mandolin plays in tune all the way up the neck. Learn more about action (string height on the neck) and its contribution to ensure ease of playability … and, how to adjust action to fit your playing style. This video is the ultimate solution to learning to play … if you cannot find a local mandolin teacher this video will certainly fill the void.
