The Celtic Mandolin

The Celtic Mandolin websiteThe Celtic Mandolin should be of interest to mandolin enthusiasts.

Currently there are three books supported by nearly 200 audio files.

The free stuff will include a tune of the month that will include a complete set of resources, audio files, notation and tablature, and tutorial notes.

Throughout the summer months - and beyond - their will be posting free 'slow session' audio files for the beginner. This is designed as a contribution to the work of the Glasgow Fiddle Workshop, but should be useful to anyone going to slow sessions.
