Bluegrass Solo in 2 Keys - by Brad Laird is a downloadable Quicktime lesson which teaches 2 complete mandolin solos for the song Sittin' on Top of the World. Learning to play in multiple keys is an important skill, especially when performing songs with lyrics, because singers will want to perform in a key that best suits their vocal range. The lesson includes plenty of licks and ideas which can be applied to many other songs when improvising. The lesson includes four MP3 practice tracks and a PDF file with all the music written in tab and standard notation. It's hard to find a bluegrass jam session where this old blues warhorse is not played... so learn this one and be ready!

"Your lessons on Salt Creek and Sittin' on Top of the World have given me great confidence that I might actually be able to improve where I'm struggling. Your teaching style is excellent, and the pace of your lessons on the two songs mentioned above is perfect for me. I can't tell you how thankful I am for your help." Rick in Colorado
