Bluegrass mandolin

Working within the basic framework of the Total Control Music System, the elements
of modern mandolin playing are explored, along with specifics of performing them.
Specifics related to various styles of playing are also studied:  Students will learn
correct right-hand technique, the Monroe "chop"; crosspicking (the MacReynolds roll); 
correct left-hand technique and chord forms; how to build accompaniments and/or
solos in the styles of different players. We'll look at the way the mandolin works with
the bass in a band to create a better rhythm section and to keep time. Finally,
there will be study of the music and styles of specific artists and/or other material
of the student's choosing
