Finally! A chord book written for the young beginner (or even beginners of any age) showing a creative and simple way to learn and play mandolin chords. Chords are taught beginning with the most essential to more advanced. Chords are presented with exercises that build upon each other and eventually lead the student to playing logical and common chord progressions. These progressions include I-iii-vi-ii-V-I and twelve bar blues in many different keys. Chords are shown in chord diagram form.
