Taught By Chris Thile

Here's a lesson that will thrill and inspire mandolinists at all levels. Chris Thile shares his own successful formula for developing right-and left-hand dexterity, improving speed and accuracy, and playing with heightened musicality.

Chris launches into detailed instruction on holding the pick, correct hand position and wrist action, getting a good balance between up and down strokes and other important advice. He provides numerous warm-up exercises, scales, arpeggios and practice routines that will make all the difference as you learn to play tunes such as Hop the Fence, Red-Haired Boy and Swallowtail Jig. In learning his beautiful Ode To a Butterfly, you'll use pull-offs and hammer-ons, position shifting, ornamentation, and other important techniques to add style and character to your playing. As a bonus, you'll hear astonishing solo performances of Chris's original tunes, When Mandolins Dream and Raining At Sunset.

Whatever level you are now at, this DVD will provide the help you'll need to reach exciting new goals in your mandolin playing.
