The first and foremost Italian mandolin book dedicated to the traditional music from Southern Italy. Written in standard notation and mandolin tablature with guitar and mandolin chord accompaniment, this book introduces the reader to the various authentic folk songs from the regions of Campagnia, Calabria, Puglia, Sicily and Sardinia. With detailed descriptions of the songs and dances, historical and technical information about tarantella and pizzica music, the book will increase the knowledge and repertoire of Italian folk music for both beginners and professional musicians alike. The book provides an excellent foundation needed to play in the style of the music. With preparatory technical studies, the student will learn the Italian style of tremolo, picking, and rhythms that accentuate the music. Together with the accompanying CD, the student will be able to play along and follow the precise nuances that distinguish the music.
