"Ok - I've learned to play mandolin. I'm having a great time but
I'd like to gain more knowledge about the fretboard. I'd like to know how
notes, chords, scales relate to each other. In other words, I'd like to have a better
understanding of the way music theory applies to the instrument."
Almost anybody who has ever played mandolin for any length of time has come to this
point of frustration. And much of this frustration is simply the result of never
learning the arrangement of notes on the mandolin neck. Because players don't know
the notes up and down the neck, and how they combine to make chords, scales, and
modes, they find it hard to branch out of tried and ultimately tired ways of playing
the mandolin. The mandolin is a wonderful instrument capable of a wider degree
of expression than many players are able to find.
For this reason 'Understanding the Mandolin Neck' was
created. It is
a computer program designed to help mandolin players stuck in a few well worn ruts
become musicians who are capable of playing many different kinds of music
all up and down the mandolin neck in any number of keys. The mandolin is not the problem.
It's simply your present lack of understanding of the mandolin neck. If you put
in time with this program, you will soon gain a much greater understanding of your
mandolin and find yourself playing far afield from those tired old ruts that are boring
“What will 'Understanding the Mandolin Neck' do for me?”
'Understanding the Mandolin Neck' will teach
you to understand the way music theory applies to the mandolin neck. Gaining this understanding
will increase the enjoyment you get from your instrument and significantly decrease
the frustration experienced by many in learning the instrument.
The program will teach you a straightforward, and easy way
to learn the location of all the notes and major chords on the Mandolin neck.
This is a first and essential step step to gaining an
understanding of the fretboard.
