Mandolinists who wish to expand their improvisational vocabulary and spice up their rhythm accompaniment are invited to try Jazz Mandolin Appetizers.
Jazz Mandolin Appetizers, prepared by Don Stiernberg, includes a batch of etudes that address the challenges every improvising mandolinist faces. These include common issues, such as selecting notes that sound good with chord progressions and finding them on the fretboard.
Don Stiernberg is a leading proponent of the Jazz Mandolin style. He has eight available recordings, performs coast to coast and abroad, writes a column for Mandolin Magazine and teaches at several Mandolin events.
