Pentatonic Roadmaps - Part 1- by Brad Laird is a downloadable Quicktime lesson that begins by teaching a basic version of Amazing Grace using only pentatonic scale notes. Next, Brad explains in detail how to transpose the song to other keys using pentatonic roadmaps. The lesson is the first part of a series of 2 lessons which will teach you to play your mandolin in the keys of A, Bb, B, C, D, E, F, and G. The lesson includes a .pdf file with tab, standard notation, and Brad's pentatonic roadmap charts. You also receive an MP3 rhythm practice track for each key taught. The ability to play in multiple keys is especially important when accompanying singers.

"I'm eating up the video downloads. Your examples are so clear, and you explain the connections and patterns in a way that really hits home. You have a nice presence, you're well spoken, clear of voice, and the shots of your fingers on the fret board are very well done. You skillfully convey your information in a well-organized manner, yet it's dense with great tips and new ways to look at things. I feel as though you've given my mandolin playing the opportunity to really take off. I'm indebted. Thanks, again. Be well and happy pickin' to you, too!"
