Here, at long last, is the book of transcriptions of my original compositions featured on my recording “Up in the Woods.” I first conceived of a companion book to the recording more than a decade ago. The idea grew from the album’s reception by musicians who were learning the tunes on mandolin and other stringed instruments. It is incredibly gratifying when other players take the time to learn my tunes and teach them to others.
This book is intended to make the process easier and more accessible for people interested in the music.
This book includes all of the melodies to the tunes, and the mandolin solos, in standard music notation and tablature.
