MANDOLIN BASICS Workshop taught by Ron Gordon

Call (585) 473-6140 to reserve your seat.   

Handouts provided and recording devices recommended. 

This class will provide you with many techniques and tips to improve your playing. 

Mandolin is a most versatile fretted instrument. Like the violin, there is a classical repertoire and approach to learning technique; and also a wide range of ethnic, American, blues, ragtime, jazz styles that fit well. You can play lead like a fiddle, and, rhythm like a guitar. We’ll learn some of the fundamental finger exercises, scales, and closed chord shapes to either get you started or round out your mandolin endeavors. We’ll also learn a few tunes along the way. 

You’ll have enough here to work on for months.  Sound files will be sent out by email a few days before the workshop.

Check out Ron's website, Learn Your Frets. It is an invaluable resource for stringed instrument players.
