Soloing in Moveable Positions

Soloing in Moveable Positions - by Brad Laird is a downloadable Quicktime lesson that is designed to do several things. After a few easy-to-learn exercises, you'll learn to play a 16 bar bluegrass style mandolin solo for the song Nine Pound Hammer in the key of B. Learning this solo will imprint on your mind a pentatonic scale pattern that you can easily move all over the fingerboard to play in lots of other keys. Lesson includes two MP3 practice tracks and a PDF file with all the music written in tab and standard notation. Topics include: pentatonic patterns, moving closed positions, doublestops, and optional blues notes.

Customer Testimonial

"I want to thank Brad for the "Soloing in Moveable Positions" video (Nine Pound Hammer). I've been playing for 1-2 years and had been taking breaks during jams. This video has given me a tool I have already used many times. Last night someone asked me if I had been sleeping with my mando under my pillow cuz' I've gotten so much better in one week. This video is worth many times the 4.95 I spent on it - and I haven't even had a chance to play Nine Pound Hammer yet in a jam - but a whole bunch of other songs in other keys." Thanks, Larry in Wisconsin
