Presented in both Tablature and Music Notation

The music is presented in both music notation and Mandolin TAB (for people that do not read music). The music notation is clear and crisp. I have received numberous compliments on both the beauty and readability of the notation and tablature. This book will help you to learn the tunes quickly whether you depend on the tablature or the music.

Comes With a Compact Disc of the Pieces Performed by Allan Alexander

The CD, played by Allan Alexander, gives the musician the advantage of being able to hear how these songs can be played and will make the learning process easier. This is a high quality Digital recording (DDD). In addition to helping the player become familiar with the music, it will also be a source of listening pleasure. You can also turn down either channel (mandolin or guitar) and play along with the CD.

A High Quality Collection of Accessible Pieces for Mandolin.

There are so many wonderful Christmas Carols for musicians to play. The problem for the instrumentalist with songs verses instrumental pieces lies with the fact that often the lyrics are a large part of the music. The melody is often lovely but fairly short and leaves us with having to either play a short piece or repeat the melody so often we are left with playing a short melody over and over. I thought about this and the solution for me is to write introductions and variations to the pieces. A singer wouldn’t sing the same lyrics every time through. That wouldn’t make sense. It does make sense to extend a piece with variations, keeping the feel of the piece but making it more interesting for both the player and the listener. Almost every piece in this collection has been expanded and I hope they will provide you with a great deal of pleasure. I think you will find these pieces to be playable and addictive.

I don't believe there is another book like this available. I can ship First Class for $2.50, priority for $4.60
