When I began practicing the mandolin more seriously, I did not feel satisfied by playing single note melodies. I arranged a lot of pieces which I knew from my guitar playing over decades, just for my own use on the mandolin. My goal was to combine melodies with chords in the way guitar players do. In my book you will find the result of my work, spanning from Renaissance to Barock, from Ireland and Italy to the Alps. An extra section with more difficult pieces will satisfy the advanced player.
