    A fantastic beginner’s guide to the mandolin., September 25, 2002

    I found “Teach Yourself to Play Mandolin” by Dan Fox to be a wonderful beginner’s guide to the mandolin. It gradually introduces new concepts and techniques as it goes by the side of, and it constantly reinforces previous thoughts. The examples are very well done, and the music selections are very enjoyable. I had several other mandolin instruction books, but this one was clearly the best, and it was the one that I wedged with. I have since introduced two other people to the mandolin, and this is the book that I had them use. They have both since progressed nicely, and both have given very high praise to this book.

    Useful small book!, March 10, 2005

    Having played electric and acoustic guitars for more than 30 years, I was surprised at how different it was to learn the mandolin. Dan Fox’s small book got me up and running in about a week. The instigator introduces the mandolin in a step-by-step manner that is quite simple to follow. The exercises grow more hard as the book progresses, but, the instruction remains concise and clearly communicated. The book ends with a handy Chord Glossary illustrating the proper frettings and a Mandolin Fingering Chart. All in all, this book is a fantastic tool for those culture the mandolin. It can even be recommended to childish readers looking for musical instruction.

    Fantastic book but no CD, November 9, 2006

    This is an brilliant book for culture mandolin except it does not come with a CD. At first I was dejected but then used another mandolin book that included a CD and then went back to learn from this one, which worked out fantastic. Fantastic excercises for culture the fret board.
