While the mandolin is not as synonymous with the blues as the guitar, the fiddle s fretted cousin was an important lead voice in many string blues bands of the 1920s through the 1940s including the Mississippi Sheiks, the Memphis Jug Band and the Dallas String Band. In the hands of great players including Carl Martin, Charlie McCoy, Yank Rachell, Howard Armstrong and Johnny Young, the mandolin was a convincing member of the blues ensemble. All of these player s styles are featured here as well as bluegrass music innovator Bill Monroe, Jethro Burns (Homer and Jethro,) Tiny Moore (Bob Wills Texas Playboys) and Johnny Gimble Special sections cover basic blues shuffle rhythm, creating your own blues solos, turnarounds and introductions. Music is written in tablature and standard notation.

About the Author:

Guitar players may not recognize Joe Carr's name at first, but his face is probably familiar. That's because he appears in over 20 instructional guitar videos ranging from country to western swing, bluegrass and even heavy metal! Add to these his videos on mandolin, fiddle, banjo, and ukulele and Joe may be the most recorded video music instructor anywhere. Joe is a self-taught musician originally from Denton, Texas who started guitar at age 13, inspired by the folk musicians of the 1960's. A few years later, he was hired to play guitar in Alan Munde's internationally known bluegrass group, Country Gazette. Over the next six years Joe recorded 3 group albums, numerous sideman projects and produced his own critically acclaimed solo guitar album, Otter Nonsense. Joe left the Country Gazette in 1984 and joined the music faculty in the unique commercial music program at South Plains College in Levelland, Texas. Throughout the 1990s he continued to record and perform with former Gazette leader and South Plains College colleague Alan Munde. In addition to two albums on the Flying Fish label, Joe and Alan have published an award-winning book about West Texas Country Music called Prairie Nights to Neon Lights from the Texas Tech University Press. Joe is editor of Mel Bay's Mandolin Sessions® and Ukulele Sessions® webzines and is also a regular columnist for Flatpicking Guitar magazine and Mandolin Magazine. He was awarded the International Bluegrass Music Association's Distinguished Achievement award in 2008.
