Easy tunes (mostly) for you to learn
and enjoy playing along to during these tricky times.
In 'normal' times I teach mandolin, bouzouki and guitar. Obviously, that's not possibly right now. However, when I do have classes and students I often prepare new music for them so I decided to keep producing resources to encourage them to stay interested in their mandolin playing.
FREE traditional music resources designed for the budding mandolin player.
Learn to play with other musicians - prepare your mandolin pals for a session once this virus is dealt with.
Think of these resources as kits for small string groups and classes.
Guitarists and bouzouki-ists might also learn a few tricks.
A selection of audio files will help you learn the tunes
A PDF document/book that you can print out or view on your computer or device. These resources are laid out for the convenience of solo players, tablature readers and especially for small groups who may want the tunes and parts presented in different forms. YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO PRINT OUT THE LOT - just pick the pages that are useful to you, or better still just view them on a screen and save a few twigs.

I once owned the dotcom (.com) version of this site but forgot to renew it (years ago). The current owners want a large amount of money from me for it now, but they can stick it.
