Steve James brings mandolin students more of the funky, old-time songs that made his previous instructional DVD on this instrument so popular. Mandolin lessons cover blues scales, chord patterns, walking lines, arpeggios, accompaniments, and great tunes, including: "Jackson Stomp," "Prater Blues," "Corrina, Corrina," "Sittin' on Top of the World," "Long as I Can See You Smile," and "Texas Tommy." 60 min; level 3; includes music & mandolin tab

DVD One is Level 2: Near-Beginner—Instructor assumes that you have not been playing very long, but know the basics. The material is still at a very easy level, but certain elementary things are not explained.

DVD Two is Level 3: Early Intermediate—You have been playing a while and can play some songs and/or instrumentals without too much difficulty. Now you want to move into specific styles, develop your repertoire and increase your technique. The instructor still covers the material in detail, but there are more challenges.
