Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Nach mehreren Jahrzehnten Gitarre wollte ich es mal mit der Mandoline versuchen. Akustische Saiteninstrumente liegen im Trend, Mandoline ist ein schönes Instrument, fein. Umso toller, dass es nun auch endlich ein wirklich gutes Lehrbuch für Mandoline gibt, das sich ganz genau an Hobbymusiker wie mich zu wenden scheint. Also an Leute, die vielleicht schon mal musiziert haben oder es noch tun, aber es auch mal mit einer Mando versuchen wollen.

Der Autor, Don Julin, ist sicherlich vielen Mandolineninteressierten schon durch seine guten Mando-Lehrvideos auf YouTube bekannt. Wenn nicht - einfach mal suchen, es lohnt sich. Ähnlich sympathisch und gut verständlich wie seine Videos ist dieses Buch aufgebaut. Es beginnt mit extrem einfachen Sachen und widmet sich dann in etlichen Kapiteln bestimmten Aspekten des Mandolinenspielens. Die Musikbeispiele sind allesamt in Noten und in Tabs angegeben, dazu gehörige Soundfiles können über einen im Buch angegebenen Link heruntergeladen werden.

Mir gefällt besonders, dass es keine "schrittweise Einführung in das Mandolinenspiel" ist, sondern eher eine Art musikalisches Lesebuch. Hat man erst mal die ersten paar Seiten durch, ist es nicht nötig (und vom Autor auch nicht gewollt), kapitelweise das Buch durchzuackern. Stattdessen schlägt man ein Thema auf, das einen gerade interessiert, und arbeitet dann zwei oder drei Seiten des Buches durch, lernt vielleicht auch dann und wann mal eines der vorgestellten Lieder. Stets macht es Spaß, es kommt kein Lernfrust auf. Zudem beschränkt das Buch sich nicht auf reines Lernen, man erfährt auch wichtige Dinge über die Mandoline, über Musikrichtungen und wichtige Musiker.

Comprehensive guide to the mandolin 6. Januar 2013
Von Freudian Slips - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I've played the guitar for years and have always wanted to learn the mandolin. But when I've tried to play it, it is so different from the guitar that I get frustrated quickly and stop. I got this guide to inspire me to try again-- and it has done that. The only thing I would have preferred (and the reason I didn't give it 5 stars) is a spiral-bound format so I could place it more easily on my music stand. It's very hard to prop it open to the page you want. Dummies guide folks, are you listening?

(December 2013 update to this review: Many helpful readers have let me know that Kinko's has a service where they will convert the book to a spiral bound format. So there you go- problem solved.) But since I have to do this myself, I'm still deducting one star from the review. :)

If the mandolin is your first instrument just remember that learning to play any instrument is an investment of time, patience, and, yes, sore fingers. Those 8 strings combined with small frets can make your hand feel like a large claw trying to find the individual notes-- but hang in there. Take it easy and practice for just 15 minutes or so a day. Once you learn a few chords, you can even practice changing them while you watch TV.

This guide is quite comprehensive and will cover everything you need to know about playing the mandolin. It provides good instruction on selecting the mandolin (support your local music store if you can!); helpful tips for playing (such as "listen to mandolin music"-- just like people who read a lot are better writers, people who listen to mandolin music will be better players); samples of different types of mandolin music; left and right hand techniques, etc.

This book will keep you busy-- probably for at least 6 months-- maybe a year. That's right-- unless you already play, don't expect to whip through this book in a week or so. This is a commitment.

My final suggestion-- join a jam session or start one in your community. Look for old-time, bluegrass, Celtic, or other musical gatherings in your area. Don't worry if you can only go and listen at first. Bring your instrument and strum chords when you can. Gradually you'll learn a song or two and you'll be on your way to a lot of fun.

most comprehensive and clearly written. 2. November 2012
Von fcosco - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Been trying to learn mandolin for about 4 years via youtube videos and instructional books and this is the most comprehensive and clearly written book i've seen. It covers every aspect of mandolin (this is what a mandolin looks like) through advanced playing techniques.

the heart of the book is chappters 4-14 that start with 2 finger chords and then move on to right and left hand techniques, chord building, picking patterns and applying them to different styles of mandolin music. Bluegrass, blues, jazz, swing, , old time tunes, brazilian and irish music and of course, dawg music.

Two of the best features are that he seems to anticipate every question that most beginner/intermediate players would have and he also gives you a sense of why you do it this or that way. for those severly allergic to music theory (i'm one of them) it's in there but only as it's applicable to everyday playing.

this book actually makes it fun to practice (not noodling), but focused practice. that in itself is a huge achievement. will keep me busy for a few years.

highly recommended.

Awesome book 16. Oktober 2012
Von John Kane - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is absolutely packed full. It features easily understood and outstanding technique instruction ranging from basic to difficult. It also covers music theory, history, music appreciation, the society of mandolinists, the aesthetics and the mechanics and all the fascinating differences of styles. One can graze on the smorgasbord or gorge themselves on any of the many entrees. The chapters on the left hand and the Jethro style chords could be studied and practiced for months. My only criticism is that after reading the chapter on 10 mando musicians to listen to, I had to visit iTunes and am now 100$ poorer.

The Best Mandolin Introduction Available 7. September 2013
Von William G. Witt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
After I had been playing mandolin for a little over a year, I had bought a number of mandolin "how to" texts. I was looking for something beyond the basic beginner level to push me to that next step, but that was not too difficult. At the same time, I had been watching mandolin Youtube videos, and had discovered several videos by a guy named Don Julin. I liked Don's online lessons so much that I contacted him directly to buy his introductory mandolin primer, and wrote him an email suggesting I thought it would be great if he were to write a follow-up book at an intermediate level.

This book appeared a few months later, and it is the book I was looking for. In my opinion, Mandolin for Dummies simply is the best overall instruction book for mandolin available today. It goes beyond the beginner level to provide a general introduction to numerous styles of mandolin playing. I love that it is not just one more bluegrass book, but introduces the player to ragtime, jazz, Irish, Brazilian, and Dawg music as well. Chapter 7 on playing "Jethro Burns"-style 3 finger chords takes the mystery (and the misery) out of learning a gazillion different chord shapes. There is also great material on rhythm, theory, scales, right hand techniques like tremolo, advice on mandolin purchase and care, etc. This is just a great book at a great price. At almost 400 pages, I have been working through it for several months now, and have still not made it to the end.

Two bits of practical advice: If you're a complete novice to the mandolin, you might want to start with a very basic primer first. If you can get hold of it, I think that Don Julin's Mandolin Method Book 1 would be a great book to work through before beginning this book. This no longer seems available on Don's website, so perhaps he no longer sells it, but there are others.

Like all Dummies books, this book has a perfect binding, which is not ideal for reading and playing simultaneously. I used a blow dryer on the spine to melt the glue, removed the cover, used a 3 hole punch on the pages, and put the text in a 3 ring binder. The results are not pretty, but make for easier playing.

Thank you, Don Julin. I await eagerly your next book -- something along the lines of Mandolin Old Time, Ragtime, and Jazz Improvization would be great!

Condensed version 13. Oktober 2012
Von StevieK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Can't fault the contents of this book. Valuable information and well done. My complaint is with the size. The publisher, apparently in order to save costs both in production and in shipping, condensed the book from the standard 8 1/2 x 11 inches to 7 3/8 x 9 1/4. This means that the entire contents of the book have been shrunk by 20 percent, including type, diagrams and pictures. I would rather have paid the extra two or three dollars for the book at standard size than to have to use a magnifying glass to read it. I recommend buying the book for the contents, but if you're over 40, better get out your bifocals.
