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.

"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
