In this incredible Homespun lesson taught by one of the greatest mandolinists of our time, Mike Marshall shows every mandolin player from beginner to experienced professional, how to become a better musician through proper technique, problem solving, and a systematic exercise regimen.
Mike's approach to mandolin starts with the basics: How to hold it, play with correct posture, get great tone, and eliminate tension and other impediments by using proper hand and pick positions. Mike's exercises will also help you improve your up and down strokes, and give you the strength, speed and dexterity you'll need to develop a strong and accurate right hand.
Mike will then show you powerful "Fingerbuster" exercises that will build your physical abilities while increasing your command of the mandolin fingerboard. He methodically works with you on scales, chord shapes and arpeggios, giving you workouts on every string and in every position. You'll then learn to visualize the fretboard as a geometric pattern, and turn these exercises into a unique musical experience.
